When plugged in without battery pack (no longer using battery pack because it is drained out), the laptop starts up but then shuts down, sometimes right away, sometimes after some time, sort of erratically. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Re: HP Pavilion ZX5000
Try to check your adaptor/ charger because it might have been the cause of your battery being drained. Your wire might have been worn out. some wires inside might have been cut off. So that is why even you directly turn into AC-DC connection your PC still doesnt work. If it doesnt work replace your adopter.

I would try the following steps, then contact HP (if these don't work, chances are it's hardware related).
1) Remove the battery and power cable.
2) Hold down the power button for 3 seconds.
3) Reattach the power cable and battery.
4) Try to boot again.
From the link you gave its seen that its comparatively lower than the other series..Brand: HP Laptop BatteryBattery Info: Li-ion, 4400 mAh, 11.10V, Black, 310.00(g), 205.15 x 59.20 x 37.50 mmRating: Capacity Voltage Price($)4400 mAh

You must fully drain the Hp Pavilion dv1000 Series battery until the laptop goes into hibernation for your first use it.
Store it in a cool and dry area. Do not expose battery to water or other moist/ wet substances.
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.
