Keyboard will not respond on zv5000

My daughter brought me her laptop to see if we could get fixed. It will power up but is stuck on the windows screen where you put in the password to get into the computer. I tried booting to safe mode and the keyboard won't even allow me to do that. Is there something I can try to do to fix this is or is a lost call?

One problem I have with mine is that the keys need to "warm up" after you first start up the computer. This usually takes anywhere from 15-20 minutes to do.

This may be why your keyboard does not respond.

The simple fix I found was to just connect a separate keyboard via USB.

Starting point would be to turn the computer right off including taking out the battery unplug the power supply wait a while and then reconnect power supply and restart holding down the key that allows you to enter the BIOS. Reset the BIOS to default settings and then restart. If this works then reinsert the battery and hopefully this will fix your problem.

I attempted to upgrade the RAM on my HP Pavilion zv5000. (the one under the keyboard) when I tried to turn it on, there is just a blank screen. Any idea what the problem is? The laptop was installed...


According to the link below you can do the upgrade. If is not working, make sure you have the memory seated correctly, then mix and match the memory and switch slots to find the problem memory. It may be incompatible with either the motherboard or the other memory sticks, or just a bad stick.

HP Pavilion ZV5000, some key not working on keyboard. keys are in a line, i.e. P[;'/ keys. I have had a similar problem on a IBM thinkpad before where i had to remove the keyboard and re-seat the ribbon...


Yes, you can try re-seating the ribbon cable. Also remove any dirt with a paper.
If this does not solve your problem, then buying a new one may be the only option.
Trust me, computer peripherals are not meant for repairs.

HP Pavilion Laptop zv5000 wont power on. NOT power cord problem.


I think your motherboard has gone bad, even though you hear a fan working, its just on a hot wire on the motherboard.

HP Pavilion ZV5000


if you are only looking to get the files off the hard drive simply remove it and daisy chain it to a desktop. On the bottom side of the laptop there are two screws marked by a symbol that looks like three cd stacked up on top of each other. Remove the screws and cover, the hard drive in on the underside of the cover.

PAvilion ZV5000 Screen Issues.


does rebooting fix the issue? if so it could be a driver issue.

However I believe its probably a loose ribbon cable. It happens from time to time, the cable eventually loosens up. If your mechanically inclined you can open up the laptop and secure the cable. However if you have never opened up a laptop, theres a good chance you will break a piece of plastic as they are fragile and force must be used in the correct places.

Good luck!

HP pavilion will not shut down


pull the power cord out and the battery (or just let it run out). Then, try turning it back on again. If it does the same thing again then yes it may be old blue death and your harddrive may be worse than dead. I don't believe that the power button doesn't work. Hold it in for 10-15 seconds or so, any computer is DOS programmed to respond to the power commands above all, even above the dreaded blue screens. Let me know if I'm an ******* and I don't know what I'm talking about or if you need more help.
