I got it fixed, There are 2 small screws on the back of the two hinges that fold the display monitor open and closed.
Remove the two screws ,and then with a small screwdriver gentley pry up the hinges. Then pry up the metal grill that sits at the top of the keyboard, (the hinges are part of the metal grill) it has clips that will pry up with the grill.
Remove the 4 screws at the top of the keyboard, this will allow the keyboard to lift up and slide it off the bottom tabs.
Pry up the white clip that hold the ribbon connection and the ribbon will pull right out.
Put the ribbon back in and push down the white clip to secure it.
Replace the 4 screws and reassembly the grill

Have a HP ...the keyboard is frozen,will not let you type. Cat layed on th keyboard. Help!!!


Check to make sure all the buttons are bouncy and not stuck down. If all the buttons seem OK then it may be broken and you will need to replace it. Try a USB keyboard to make sure the laptop is still working correctly.

My mouse and keyboard freeze up momentarily EXACTLY every three seconds. Re-installing the OS twice didn't help. Wiped HD and installed again still didn't help. Computer is an HP ze5000 laptop.


need more input to isolate the problem... does this occur when on power... does this occur when not on power... if ur system is old then is there lint settled within ur fan vents... all remaining the same seeing such a precise count i would suggest get the mobo cleaned up and checked for dust and i would conclude that u either need a BIOS update a BIOS reset or a hardware assistance... hardware assistance in any form for laptop would be to replace the MOBO costly!

Power Supply Port Burnout


1) You need to replace the DC Power Jack. This is the port on the laptop where the AC adapter (Charger) plugs in. {Power port}

Most so called repair shops won't touch this. (Notice I stated so called) They will want to replace the entire motherboard. {Geeks are us}

A bona fide computer repair tech can replace the DC Power Jack. Cost of jack? Around $10. Repair bill? From $50 to $125.

[Entire laptop needs to be disassembled, down to the bare motherboard in the tech's hand. Precise de-soldering, and soldering skills, are needed for the DC Power Jack replacement. Reassemble laptop.

This gives you an idea of what is involved,

DC Power Jack replacement,

2) Replace the AC adapter. If the AC adapter has a separate cable from the power unit, to the laptop, then by all means just replace it. May be more of a headache, then just buying a universal AC adapter.

Barring none of the above is a feasible approach for you, and you wish to save the information on the harddrive, of both your laptop, and your brother's, I would suggest an economical external enclosure.

Remove the harddrive, and install it in the external enclosure. The enclosure has a USB cable, and is plugged into any available USB port on a separate computer.
(Desktop?)

The HP Pavilion ZE5000 series of laptops, (Business Notebook's), use an IDE (PATA) harddrive.
It is 2.5 inches across in width.
(Desktop harddrives are 3 and 1/2 inches across in width)

This is one example of a 2.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

To remove the harddrive, I'll need to know the exact Product Number.
(P/N)
This is on the bottom of the laptop in a white Service Tag.
(DO NOT give out the Serial Number. S/N)

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
