Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
My laptop won't power up. It tries to power up, then stops and makes a hiccup noise. It then powers down and tries to power up again. This happens over and over again. The only way to stop this is by unplugging it and taking out the battery. Help!
I have an HP Laptop zd7020us and I had problems with it booting up. When I turned it on, it would run for about 15 minutes and then freeze. CTL-ALT-DEL would not work, so I had to power down by holding the power button for 4 seconds. After troubleshooting for quite some time, I finally found the problem. I had two sticks of ram and after trying each stick individually, I am running with only one stick. The other one was faulty.
Other indications that this might be your problem: After it runs for a short time, it will not allow you to boot up again. All the power lights come on, the fan kicks on, and you can use the CD/DVD drive, however, it doesn't POST.
This is an indication of faulty RAM.
Hope this helps someone and stops you from buying a motherboard unnecessarily.
