HP Pavilion Laptop zv5000 wont power on. NOT power cord problem.

HP ZV5000. Battery seems dead, wont run or hold a charge. When plugged in, the laptop lightning bolt will light up though. When plugged in, and you hit the power button, all the blue lights on the keyboard will come on, except the hard drive light never comes on. I can hear and feel one fan turning on. The monitor never turns on. No beep, no boot to bios.
I've tried:
Plugging in CRT monitor - still no visuals.
Removing battery - running straight from power adapter.
Removing HDD, no difference.
Reseated HDD and memory.
Tried another power adapter, no difference.

Any help would be appreciated! I've built many desktops, but no experience with laptop innards. Is there an internal power supply that could be bad, or do I have to replace the motherboard?
Thanks!
Chris

    Same problem battery ran down to 0% however, can see electrical charge, blue lights, flashing lightening bolt. All the pretty stuff, however, in about 30 to 60 seconds it was totally dead, no fans (there is two) was running. I have worked on PC's but never laptops and I remember that it was the motherboard when all signs point power supply. The cord and battery were replaced. At this point, the best advice is to buy another laptop as the Pavilion zv5000 was purchased in 2004 and it would be costly to attempt a motherboard change out. However, I will run it by the neighborhood computer shops first.

Do you have Vista? If so, you should contact HP directly. I had the same problem which occured 3 months after my warranty ran out. I called HP and was told(after they tried to sell me another laptop) that I installed the wrong antivirus program but since I never used my warranty, they would do me a BIG favor and fix it for free. I then waited 14 days for my new laptop and was very happy when it was returned only to find out 3 months later that there is a RECALL for HP laptops with the Vista program that was a MANUFACTURERS defect. THEY HAVE TO FIX IT AND FOR FREE!!!!! I hope this helps you. Good luck.

I think your motherboard has gone bad, even though you hear a fan working, its just on a hot wire on the motherboard.

Starting point would be to turn the computer right off including taking out the battery unplug the power supply wait a while and then reconnect power supply and restart holding down the key that allows you to enter the BIOS. Reset the BIOS to default settings and then restart. If this works then reinsert the battery and hopefully this will fix your problem.

The power supply cord does not charge or supply power to the laptop. I purchased a new power cord only to find out that it is an internal issue. What part do I need to replace the internal power supply?


in all likelyhood it's the connect that the power cord plugs into. the soldering often fails in that area. it needs to be resoldered to make a good connection

ZV5120 pavilion notebook powercord not connecting


You can get an exact adapter from eBay link below, they are quite cheap. Sometimes the break is close to the end of the plug, and sometimes, the actual solder on the socket inside the unit is fractured, causing intermittent connections. Often we are able to use the old cord Plug, and graft on the new power Lead. However it is wired and regardless of how many wires are inside, the is only One - Negative, the OUTER contact. The INNER Contact is Always + Positive, sometimes there are three wire inside, TWO are Plus, and ONE, the shield, is negative.

I cant charge my laptop and use it as the same time


A fast check to determine whether you have a problem with the power adapter, power cord or the laptop's battery is to turn off the laptop, remove the battery, connect the power adapter, turn on the laptop & see if it works.
If the laptop works directly from the power adapter with the battery removed, then the power adapter is good. In this case we can suspect that the battery is defective.

It is most likely a motherboard problem. You would have to take it to a service center for diagnostics. If it is the problem it may be time for a new laptop
