Just got this thing and hasn't started yet. hit power button and the lights will flash, the cd rom will engage and then everything quits and repeats between 2 and 4 times before it stops even trying. The screen never even flickers. No cd in drive, tried with and with-out battery in. Any ideas?

Re: pavillion ze4805us no start-up
Yes, your best option is to call the manufacturers help and support so you will have documentation that it has not worked since you bought it. If they cannot fix it over the web, then you have a record of that also. Then pack it up and send it back for a replacement or a refund..what is happening should never happen and you'll probably always have problems with it. Do not open it and play with it as you will lose your warranty.
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

DCD or CD stuck, exploded? In the Start Menu, Computer, right click the DVD/CD rom drive , scroll down, click on Eject. There may be a "pin-hole" on the face by the button, you can use a paperclip to insert and open. If All else fails remove the DVD and remove cover.
Hi, seems to be a wellknown problem of Pavillon NB's. Looks like that the northbridge chip on the mainboard ist unsoldered. Even if somebody tells you do fix it by dropping the mainboard into your baking oven for a few minutes, don't try it! There are specialists who have the technical equipment and the knowledge to fix that problem. But in most cases it would not held a long time.
Go to the start button and click on the run box, type in msconfig and hit enter. When the windown pops up, click on "selective startup". Click on the startup tab at the top of the windown, this will list all programs and services that automatically start when windows boots. The only things here that you absolutely need to startup with windows is your wireless configuration, virus and malware protection, and touchpad software to enable tapping and scrolling and changing settings....most of the other programs you do not need to aytomatically start, they can be started when you need them and then you just click on their shortcuts. Go through these [rograms and see if there is anything listed as control center....if not look on the control center window and see if the is a small box in the left lower corner that needs to be checked in order for the windown to not sho up on the next boot. Either way, you can get rid of it in msconfig. Hit apply and ok and restart.
insert the os disc in some cases systems come with a system recovery disc if this is not the case just insert what you have shutdow your system when your system boots press the del,f2,or whatever hotkey your system uses to enter the bios menu then while in bios go to boot devices or boot options and click start from cd and then press f10 to save and exit your system will ask yes no click yes then it should restart and a white text should appear saying boot from disc ? click any button when os finnally loads it will ask you to install or to repair ?click repair this searches your system finds out what it's lacking and reloads it .this should be it hope this helps good luck !!!!
May be the power supply gor affected by the damage because the cd rom busted so better than trying to use the same power supply better get another new one because it may damage the other parts of the computer.......
enter the bios setup, if you can boot the computer/laptop. Usually F2 on bootup, it will say entering Setup.
Then scroll through the pages to see if your hard-drive is recognised by the system.
