    Thanks for the suggestions,however I finally figured out thru trail and error that it was a short in the two wire connector on the power switchboard. This wire goes up under the palm rest and i believe is some kind of ground switch??? If someone knows exactlly what this is please let me know.Thanks

I dont' understand your sentence. I think you're telling me.
Does not stay ON long enough to get into SETUP. Windows Logo never appears.

This is not a virus if it cannot even boot to hard drive or see BIOS SETUP.
it's a hardware problem. It has very possibly overheated and the computer is in a loop trying to recover when booting.

Remove the hard disk from the computer.. it should be along the edge on the bottom of the laptop and slides out after you remove a few screws.
Then try to start it... if it powers on.. you need to replace hard drive with a new.
old hard drive is dead and should be sent to data recovery if you can afford it. ($500+)

If doesn't boot.. remove memory chips on bottom of laptop. Try again.

If that doesn't It work.. then it may be motherboard failure and is too expensive and costly to replace.

Look at new laptop.

Good Luck.

Hi there, it sound like a computer virus or trogan virus; it is a malicious program. You need to use an Anti-Virus or Anti-trogan program to get rid of it.

It could also be software problem like a corrupted file in your Operating System.

You should first format your hard drive and try it first and see what happens.
By formatting your hard drive, and re installing your Operating System, should correct the problem.

If not use the Anti-virus or Anti trogan program.

My mother gave me a HP Pavilion ZE 4500. I push the on button not a thing happen. No flashing light, No sounds.


The most common reasons are the power adapter/cord and power jack.

If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.

The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement.

If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.

Hope this helps.

I have dell inspiron 1100 with 6450 MAh battery which is death already, i am looking to buy new one, before doing it i would like to get some advise what is the difference between 4400 MAh, 5200 MAh, 6450...

MAH is short for Milli Amp Hr...
4400MAH battery - short time for the battery to may work for 4 to 5 hrs....
7800MAH will work longer for say 8 to 10 hrs.....

also depends on what applications u use...if it contains many graphics and you keep watching movies then the working hrs gets further shorter....
hope this clarifies....offcourse...the 7800 will cost you more...than the 4400....
as far as what is suitable to you laptop check the mfg website or the manual that came with the notebook...some times...the power adpator also gives the battery specifications that must be used...

let me know...

Blank screen acer 4400

remove battery, press and hold power button for 5 seconds, then put battery back in and start.
This usually works. If by slight chance it does not, check that the memory cards aren't loose or faulty.

How do I open the HP Pavilion ze 4300 to replace the powerjack

All screws need to be removed off the back of the computer then you need to flip the computer over and then remove the plate right above the keyboard and remove the screws there. Once that is done you will be able to get into the motherboard

Need help disassembling hp 4300 laptop

One of my favorites things about HP is they have service manuals available for free online. Yours is located at:

and will give you exploded views, step-by-step disassemble, and part numbers for everything you'd ever need for that laptop. If you need a manual for another laptop, you can go to and search for the model number under support and troubleshooting information.

I hope this helps!
