Question about HP Pavilion zd7000 zx5000 zv5000 presario 3000,R3000 Series 120W Laptop AC Adapter-360699-001 CD-ROM Drive
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.
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?
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.
