Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
Last week my laptop starting to give problem, I always use ac adapter, then last week starting to drain battery out until it doesn't stay-on, I replaced my ac adapter and make sure output dc volt is right, I a new battery but haven't arrived yet, last night I'm so frustrated and dismanted the laptop, I want to check that power input assembly. but seen to be ok, yesterday I was w/ HP tech support chat, he said problem could the power input assembly or motherboard.
my question is, how do you test motherboard?
There is a class action lawsuit currently being initiated against HP for this issue. The Complaint alleges that HP misrepresented and concealed material facts regarding certain laptops including a design defect, which causes the power jacks of the laptops to fail.

You cannot test a mother bpoard it can only be done on tech site or in the workshop, the best thing you can do since you know how to dismantle your pc is to isolate the prob
first AC output is ok - in the motherboard ensure that there is no loosed connectivity between the power receptacle in the motherboard , any loosed soldered plugs can cause erratic prob on the pc as well, might seem ok but sometime arent visible to naked eye, you need to twist it up a bit and if you see some movement then that is the prob then you need to solder this, w 30 watts soldering iron . if you measure the input on the receptacle and ensure that there i s a presence of DC supply
if not then the prob is really on the motherboard itself, cheers

The dv series has many issues and some are under recall you can look at any of my hp support tickets for more information.
My specific question for you is it a no power problem or no post problem? Both could be a result in an extended recall service.
