Question about HP Pavilion ze4430us Notebook

Won't stay on

When I turn on my laptop all the lights come on for a second and then the computer stops. It will do this four times and then the computer will stay on but it will have a blank screen. It won't even try and boot up. I thought it might be the ram but I took it out and replace it with new ram and it did the same thing. I even took the ram out and turned it on with no ram and it did the same thing. I'm lost and I could really use some help with this. Thnaks

Hi, sounds ominous. First thoughts are that your hard drive has packed up, but I assume you have made all the normal checks to be sure your power pack is plugged in and that the indicator light on the power pack is working okay. If not, may be that your internal battery is totally flat, and without getting power through the power pack the machine would not then boot up. Does it get far enough for you to look at the bios to see if it is recognising you have a hard drive? If it gets far enough to try and boot from a CD, get yourself a Bart PE bootable CD by downloading from the internet (search in Google for 'Bart PE') and with that you would be able to load an operating system onto the RAM and get yourself a Windows Explorer type piece of software, and using that you would be able to see if you have a hard drive or not. Another way to check the hard drive would be to pop it out, and put it in one of those external cases you can buy for a few pounds, then plug it into a USB port on ony PC and see if it works. If the hard drive is gone, it is very easy to buy and insert a new one for yourself, the most dificult part is formating the drive, then just use your restore CD to rebuild it. Hope this doesnt sound to complicated, it really isnt. Allanh

2005 Softail ARMING/DISARMING SECURITY SYSTEM (TSSM) 3.7
GENERAL
The security system can be armed automatically by the TSSM when the bike is shut down or manually by the use of the fob and it can be turned off automatically by having the fob within range when the ignition is turned on or by entering the PIN or personal code.

The security system lamp in the speedometer head confirms the status of the system as armed or disarmed.

The range within which the fob will work is dependent on the environmental and geographic conditions so the fob should be held at about waist level and horizontal to the tssm and pointed at the front of the bike with the fob button held down until both of the turn signals flash twice which indicates that the TSSM has responded to the fob and the security system has been activated. To disarm the system the fob should also be held at about waist level and horizontal to the TSSM and pointed at the front of the bike and the fob button rapidly pressed two times within 1.5 seconds after which if the TSSM has responded and turned off the security system the signal lights will flash one time.

The fob is synchronized to the particular TSSM and the fob button should not be pressed very often when it is away from the bike because this might cause it to become de-synchronized to the particular TSSM which would require that the fob button be pressed and held within range of the TSSM for 10 to 15 seconds or until it is re-synchronized and the signal lights flash two times in response.

The personal code (PIN) consists of five numbers or digits each of which can be any number from 1 to 9 that are individually entered into the security system by using the left and right turn signal switches. This number can be used to disarm the security system without the fob. If an error is made while entering the PIN the TSSM will activate the alarm for 30 seconds after the fifth digit is entered and the security lamp will flash every second for ten minutes and there cannot be any further attempts to enter the code during this ten minute period.

The way to enter a personal code is to set the RUN/OFF switch to OFF, turn the IGNITION key to ACC, hold both turn switches in until the security lamp blinks at a fast rate to confirm that the security system is ready for personal code entry, THEN enter the first PIN digit (number) by pressing the left turn switch button a number of times equal to the value of the first digit of the PIN, i.e. for 1 press once for 2 press twice etc., then press the right turn signal switch button 1 time to enter the first number, THEN press the left turn signal switch button the number of times that is equal to the second number of the PIN, followed by pressing the right turn signal switch button 1 time to enter the second number, then press the left signal light switch button the number of times equal to the third number of the PIN followed by pressing the right signal light switch button one time to enter the third number of the PIN, THEN press the button of the left turn signal light switch a number of times equal to the number of the fourth PIN number followed by pressing the right signal light switch button once to enter the fourth PIN number, THEN press the left signal light switch button the number of ties that is equal to the fifth number of the PIN followed by pressing the right turn signal switch button one time to enter this final number of the PIN at which point the security lamp in the speedometer head will stop flashing and the signal lights will flash once to confirm that the security system has been disarmed.

If the security lamp light in the speedometer head does not flash the security system is not armed or the bike does not have a security system or the system if installed is in storage mode.If the security system light in the speedometer head flashes every second for ten minutes there has been a failed PIN entry attempt. If the security system light in the speedometer head flashes once every two seconds the security system is armed. If the security system light in the speedometer head flashes 3 times per second the system is in PIN entry mode. If the security system light stays on solidly with the ignition key OFF auto-arming is commencing and there will be a 30 second period before the system is armed. If the security system light in the speedometer head stays on solidly for more than 4 seconds with the ignition switch ON there is a current DTC(s) set.

With a TSM if the four-way flashers flash 6 times shortly after the ignition switch is turned to ON you should check for DTC's that have been set.

A TSSM diagnosis starts with observation of the security system light in the speedometer head at KEY ON which means that the run switch and the ignition switch are both ON without starting the engine. When the ignition key is turned ON, the security lamp will illuminate for approximately four seconds and then turn off. If the security lamp is not illuminated at Key ON or if it fails to turn OFF after the initial four second period, the speedometer may be defective and need to be replaced. If BUS Er is displayed on the odometer, it may take up to twenty seconds for the security lamp to illuminate. The security lamp will also light for eight seconds after the first four second bulb check period if any historic diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) are present. After the initial 4 second bulb check period of lamp illumination the security lamp will stay on if current DTCs are set. If a historic DTC is present, the security lamp will continue to light for 50 ignition cycles or until the DTC has been manually cleared away. After the lamp turns off after being illuminated for the first four second period, one of three events may occur: 1.The lamp will remains off which indicates there are no current fault conditions or stored historic DTCs being detected by the TSSM. 2. The lamp stays off for four seconds and then comes back on for an eight-second period which indicates that a historic DTC is stored, but no current DTC exists. 3. If the lamp remains on beyond the eight-second period a current DTC exists.

Computer will not power on. Lights up for second


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter. Then turn on the laptop.

If it doesn't stay on then take out the hard drive and the dvd drive.

If it still doesn't stay on then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
