I bought a HP ZT1260 laptop, guy told me all it needed was a battery hence the laptop not booting up, I bought another new battery, when pressing the power button it starts and you can hear the hard drive spin but shuts down after about 25-30 seconds, no screen display. looks like I got burned!
Ok it's probably not the battery. Try taking the battery out and run it just by the cord, if it works, than return the battery and get a genuine HP one. If it is a genuine one,save it.If fails i'ts the power board or even worse, the motherboard. Now it could be a CPU overheat, look up on google "taking apart HP zT1260". and clean fan and mainboard. if that fails, it's the video card, again look and take apart and see if the graphics card is removable, if it is replace it, if not. You got ripped off and he was bluffing :( Trust me I'm a computer IT worker. Try returning it, if that fails, tell people that he shouldn't be a repuatable seller. Good Luck

sounds like it is powered up if it is continually restarting. Does it work with the AC power adapter plugged in? At any rate the constant restart is indicative of a failing power supply (not meaning the battery but the power converter that is inside notebook). After the BIOS the PC goes to the hard drive for the boot cycle at which point there is an increase in power demand which can cause a weak power supply (not the battery) to shutdown and restart, hence the restarting cycle. How do you tell him to fix the problem?? well that depends but I don't believe that there is a conversational repair at this point.
If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LED flashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faulty inverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

if you are familiar in tearing down the laptop, here is the step by step process... Turn off the laptop, remove the cables and battery.. Then press and hold power button for 8 secs.....remove the screws at the corners of the laptop bottom. Remove the Hard drive, remove the optical drive, remove the screws at the front of the laptop.. Remove the keyboard , and then remove the cooling fan just above the processor and replace it...
hi I had the same problem faced twice in one month, and it’s a new laptop just one month old, I have removed battery for for few minutes and fixed it back. And it's working fine now. If it continues what should I do?
