HP Pavilion zv5000 Screen

Hi, I have just recenty bought a used HP ZV5000. It had a bad hard drive in it with bad clustters. I removed the hard drive and put the new one in. I all so checked the memory a compartment. I turned it on and the screen would not come one but the computer booted. I installed windows by hooking up a screen to the back of it. I installed all the drivers for it to figuring that was the problem, still no screen. The screen worked fine when I got it. Can some one tell me what this issue might be. Thank you, Steve

Re: HP Pavilion zv5000 Screen

Hi, I just stumbled upon this post while researching a different problem. I have the same laptop and had a problem with my screen not working which really freaked me as I had it for less than a year & was still paying on it. Same as you, I could hear it running going thru post etc. I discovered that this laptop has a very touchy little switch right by the hinge which is supposed to tell the computer when you fold open & close your laptop. I discovered that gently wiggling & pressing up & down this switch with the laptop open finally brought my screen back into action. I now rarely open & close my poor laptop as I'm afraid that switch will give out on me. Definate design flaw they are aware of as I read about it on their support page. Hope this helps others. :)

Re: HP Pavilion zv5000 Screen

This seems to be a very common problem on fixa, yet the only diagnosis could be a damaged connection from board to screen possibly in the hinged area. You may get some information regarding the video issue from HP, as there is something connecting all these problems once the hardrive has been replaced, whether there is a hidden bios setup for the screen; I don't know, unless the problem relates to a motherboard disturbance, although this would not be the case if you could get a monitor to work via vga port. I applogise for no solution but it just seems unbeleivable that this is a regular occurance after an upgrade or hardware replacement. I think maybe it's one of those close kept secrets of notebook manufacturers.

Hpzv5000 gets hot quickly

I haved a HP zv5000 series too, they do get hot, especially if viewing video on YouTube etc. Mine is clean too and I use a "ChillPad" under it from Staples Office Store. I believe it is because the battery is always in it while plugged in, along with the fact that the PC is using all of its' capacity to do its' job.

If your battery is in it while plugged in and in use, try unplugging the PC, or removing the battery, which is BTW not supposed to be left in all the time while plugged in. But who doesn't do that? LOL

I got an hp pavillion zv5000 dont have power on / bios passw

Sorry to say, but I think you'll need to contact HP support on this. They have a great chat feature that they can help you on.

I just think most people will be hesitant to assist you with bypassing passwords, but I could be wrong!

Hope this helps, anyway.
