Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook
If your battery is dead and your charger is dead there is no way to test. You need a working ac to verify the issue. Go to an office depot for hp or best buy for dell and ask one of the clerks to plug your laptop into a working charger. power your system. IF it powers up ask where the universal 90watt power converters are. buy one of your liking. I say universal becasue you can use it on a many laptops and it is usually higher reated in watts.
Please do not forget to rate me :)

Same HP 8000 model here. HP customer support says the problem of having no power is caused by the connection jack in the computer that is a component of the motherboard. $300 to have a 2 yr old notebook that is out of warrantee fixed.
This seems a very common, expensive and very difficult to fix HP problem. The entire mother board has to be replaced or the computer taken apart? These computers should be recalled.

It doesn't look to me that you're doing anything wrong there.
Was there a specific installation requirement for the battery?
I recently changed my battery on my IBM/Lenovo and all that was necessary, was to let it charge fully before usage.
If you say your battery was charged for "a few days", then I assume there is something wrong with the battery. Next to your taskbar you should see a battery symbol. Double-click on it and you should see the Thinkpad Power Manager. If there is a tab called "Battery Information", see if that gives you more details. Look at the Manufacturing date!
If you really can't run the laptop without being connected to a power source, I would definitely return the battery or at least call the vendor. If your computer is running fine otherwise, there should be nothing wrong with the machine itself.
If you can take a screenshot of that battery information window adn post it here, I am happy to look at it.
You're doing the right things when you try to use the laptop without an external power source - that's the whole idea, isn't it?

There could be a number of resons for this. Some thoughts:
1) Was your laptop working fine before you bought this new adapter? Eg. did it work with the previous one.
2) Are you positive that it is compatible? You should check all the power ratings against the old adapter (voltage output, current output).
3) Make sure the connector that plugs into the back of the laptop is a perfect fit. Connectors have a + and -. The outside metal ring may fit, but the inside 'pin' may be too small and not making contact with the receving part of the laptop.
4) Make sure that the connector inside the laptop has not broken. Easy way is to get a pencil with eraser and stick it in there and wiggle it around. If it moves sustantially, you may have some connector pins that have become unsoldered. If so, you need to get this fixed.

there is a short circuit onnthe laptop motherboard usually it's power ic's that are next to the power socket that block the power from going to other parts so you should change those ic's

Sounds to me like the transformer circuit that enables the batery to charge. If you have bought your machine within the last 12 months it should still be covered by warranty so go back to the supplier. If not covered I wouod still try as it is not beyond reasonable expecations that the machine will operate perfectly in very way for more than 1 year.
