HP Pavillion Laptop Screen and Mouse freeze

The only way I can get my laptop to start up and get the screen to light up is to balance it on my knee (pressing in various places on the bottom). Often after it is on, the mouse will freeze and I have to do the same thing. sometimes it works perfectly---like now--other times I can barely use it
keep it simple please---i do not know a lot about the insides

    yes it is plugged in- I took it to Geek Squad and they said the power adapter plug was bent but thatdoes noy solve the problem. the computer is almost four years old. it has the same problem when I run on battery.

    i have discovered that it is not the BACK that I am pressing, it is the left palm rest near the mouse. I read that other people were doing the same thing and discovered that I was actually pushing there as I thought i was pushing the back!

Memory,hd or vga is not seated properly ...I'd start with removing mem and reseating it/them..next I'd check hd for bad sectors..two ways to do this ...get into the dos screen at startup(c:// prompt)
and type in chkdsk this will check and fix any found errors...in case you dont know ;if you boot with windows and select repair it will put pc into dos enviroment..
second way is to download a hd recovery program create a boot disk and write extracted files or iso to it..then boot the pc you want to check with it.you can check vga in device manager.

HP Pavillion zd8000 won't power up


Try attaching a normal VGA desktop monitor to it. There should be a plug either on the sides or the back of the laptop. A blue one. That way you'll be sure.

My HP Pavillion laptop just started this. I will get up from using the laptop, and when I come back the screen is black and won't come back. Moving the mouse won't bring it back. HELP!


Remove screensaver and sleep settings. And wait for the same duration. It is goes blank and locks up, report again. Else it is a problem with the screen saver. Change the screensaver and try again
