Dead HP zv6000 Won't Start at all

Hi there, Everyone:

I have a dead HP zv6000 notebook. I tried FIXING a noisy CPU fan last night, and when I put it back together it won't boot up.

The power light comes on and the fans start whirring, and the DVD light in the very front comes on for a few seconds, and then goes out.

I don't hear the hard drive seeking / spinning, and there is NOTHING on the screen (completely dark).

I don't hear any beeps when I power on, either.

There is a good chance I screwed up the keyboard ribbon / ziff connection when I tried to put the keyboard ribbon back in.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose / repair this would be greatly appreciated.

Alternatively, since I don't really like this machine all that much, if anyone knows a way to get the data off the hard drive inexpesnively, that would be great too. Is there an external USB case I can buy and plug the hard drive into so that I can use it as an external drive?

Thanks in advance

    Thank you so much, antiochpc:

    I will try and disassemble - reassemble it again when I get a chance. It took me three hours last night to do it, so it will probably take me just as long this time.

    Let me ask you this: I pulled off the thermal unit to replace the CPU fan. the thermal unit has spring mounted screws. I just tightened it down as much as i could by hand (just using my hand, not my wrists or forearm power). Is there a possiblilty that it is tightened down too hard or to loose?

    Also, I replaced the cpu fan, based onn someone's recommendation, because there was a grinding noise that we suspected was the cpu fan.

    Anyway, after replacing it, I still have the same grinding noise at startup. both fans do spin at start up for about 6 seconds and then they both stop, so I am guessing that gringing noise is NOT from the cpu fan. Is it possible that it is the har drive??? I think my drive would have been dead long ago though, because it was SUCH a loud noise when it would first start up.

    Thanks!

Okay the first thing you want to do is disassemble it again and make sure all your connectors are connected. Even if you damaged the keyboard cable, the computer should still boot up at least to a keyboard error screen. Make sure the RAM is seated correctly and everything is tight. It is possible that you damaged something (motherboard) as these things are extremely sensitive but hopefully you just have a loose cable somewhere.

If you need the data off the disk, a external USB case would work, or you can just get a USB adapter, without a case it may be cheaper. You can get a multiple one that will connect to IDE or SATA 3.5 or 2.5 drives for around $20 or so.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Actually it boots, just that you don't see it. Try using another monitor - even a tv will do: disconnect the present monitor, connect the new one and reboot. If you get an image then the monitor is dead, replace it. If you don't then the onboard video card id dead, get a new one and try again. If even now it.s dead then you need a new motherboard.

Dead. Only lights up where plugged into power cable & LED lights


Open up the case and make sure that all the PC boards are properly seated in their slots.
Check all the ;power connectors and board connectors. One of them may have come loose during transport.
Leave the case open and turn on the power to see if the fans (case and CPU) are spinning.
Let me know if this fixes the problem or if we have to further research the motherboard. Thanks.

Cpu fan


It isn't detecting your fan as the fan may be dead or the sensor is dead. Both are not repairable but cheaply replaced and fixed with a new fan. The cost of the replacement cpu fan is not that much compared to a cpu. So don't try to make it last a bit longer by hitting the f1 to continue. That will catch up with you pretty quick.

If you want to double check you need to look at either the cmos setup section of a system monitoring software and check to see cpu fan speed and cpu temps. You may not see the speed but you should see the temps. If the temp is getting over 55-60 or more shut down and go get the fan. It's dead. If you see the rpms showing then you might have a motherboard problem.

However I would say you have a dead fan. Replacements are $5-15 and you need to just crack the case and pull the old one and put in the new one. You can take it to a tech but they will charge you to check it out again and then ti replace the fan and some shops will insist on new heat sink etc (those don't ever ever wear out or go bad at all)

Hp laptop dv9500 noisy and loud fan ...


The sound you are hearing is probably the fan, This fan has a noisy bearing and will eventually lock up and the fan will stop spinning and therefore the CPU will overheat and shutdown.
The fan needs to be replaced.

HP ZV6000 Fan Making Noise


I had a similar problem on my zv6000, but I've tracked it down to the fan in the middle (not the one above the CPU with the heatsink).

For anyone else that doesn't feel like taking your laptop apart twice (once to get the part number and twice to put the new fan in after you get it online, etc.), the fan is a Sunon Maglev GC 056015VH-A. HP doesn't carry them in the parts store anymore, but I ordered mine online from an independent retailer.

Acer travelmate 4000 laptop Big problem


I guess I can assume that you have it plugged into the ac power, so you know its not a power problem. We also know its not a problem with the power switch since the light turns on. So that leaves, motherboard, cpu, and ram possible problems. Ram would unlikely cause such a hault. Even with no ram, I believe the computer would make horrible beeping noises. So if its a problem with the motherboard or cpu, its pretty much trash, unless you want to waste the money on ebay or some place for another cpu to try to swap.
