we cant guess what PC you have, nor its upgrades
nor what OS you are running. NOW, nor what it came with new.

id bet it's infected , run ESET, off line scanner yet, its FREE
If XP it for sure is INFECTED, as ALL are now. XP is dead now.

This error message may appear when the computer BIOS is set to boot from a network and cannot find a bootable operating system on the network or on any of the storage devices included in the notebook PC's boot path.
So, if you have any USB sticks or attached HDD's that do not have an install image remove them and reboot.
If the HDD has an operating system installed and it still won't work after removing any USB storage, check that the HDD is functioning properly.

Press and hold the power button until it switches off. It should then reboot.

HP uses "branded" wireless modules,which means it's got to be HP or it doesn't get to play.
Does device manager see the wireless device? I've had similar situations with the 8000s. Always the driver or the wireless utility was the problem. Try letting windows manage the device, or if you already are, disable that and use the devices utiliy to manage it.
BTW, most systems consider BT as wireless.
Good luck, hope that helps

What do you mean? Does your keyboard not respond?

You can't turn the keyboard on or off, like you can with a touchpad. You will more than likely have to get a new keyboard, or use an external USB keyboard.

The computer have 3 buttons. One is the DVD, the second is de Media Player, and the third is the wireless devices switch. If this button is not lighted, all wireless connections are off (both WIFI and Bluetooth).

As far as I know, the original zd8000 operating system is Windows XP. If you have Windows 7 installed, then you need to get Windows 7 disc and its product key. If you need the Windows XP reinstallation media, then you can use HP Windows XP reinstallation disc only (for example: HP Windows XP Professional with SP2 disc).

If the button or on/off switch that is provided for the WiFi (may have a line with three curved lines coming off of it as a symbol for the button) is toggled or enabled and the wifi won't turn on, then there is a good chance that the driver for the wifi isn't loaded.

You can tell if the driver is missing by opening the Control Panel, opening System, opening Device Manager and looking for a Network Adapter category. Expand the Network Adapter category by clicking the plus sign and look for a WiFi adapter in there. If it has a yellow exclamation point ! on it then there is a problem with the network card and it needs to be reinstalled. If there isn't a WiFi or Wireless Network adapter in there, chances are it is found under a category called "Other Devices" and it still needs to be reinstalled.

To install it, you will probably have to delete the device out of the device manager (highlight it and press the delete key on the keyboard) and then plug your laptop into wired network connection (usually your router or internet service modem will have a network port that you can plug into directly with an ethernet cable). You'll go to the manufacturer's website, click on support and search for drivers for your laptop. Be sure to go to the network section and download and install the network driver for your system.

Which light flashes, and can you explain it in more detail? Where does it stop? Is it charging? Did you have problems before this one? How old is it and how much use? How often do you defragment data?

If what I think it could be is happening, it might be the hard-drive is failing/failed or a BIOS corruption.

If its BIOS
http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5K_SE/e3202_p5k-se.pdf will help. Look at 4.1.5 pg 74 and it should direct you in a few short steps.
If it is not BIOS then its probably hardware, though answer my questions and I can pinpoint it (could be other things)

If you have the remote for the HP Pavilion zd8000 you can use that to switch if the keyboard is faulty.

First step: Clean up the air vents (inlet and outlet) and the fan. You can use canned air to clean it up.
Second step: Use Windows media (DVD) to reinstall the operating system (it will fix the boot up problem).
If the problem persist: use a good working hard drive and install the operating system from scratch.

Hi there ,
remove the power cable & battery then insert the power adaptor cable only ,then check whether the Laptop will boot

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Dec 04, 2013


sounds like your power inverter is going bad. replace power inverter and see how that works. Other issue if not solved is probably lcd screen. Inverter's can be found cheaper used if you use the serial number on your old inverter for searching, seeing as how inverters are often used on many different of machines. FYI.
