This is a charactoristic problem with many brands of laptops. How long has it been since you changed the battery? Overcharging the battery is what causes the heat to seemingly heat up the keyboard.

Hp Pavilion zd8000 shuts down loosing all opened windows


There is a software called "SpeedFan" which you can download here

This software will tell you the internal temperatures of the computer (so you can figure out if overheating is the problem). Most of the time overheating is due to excessive dust inside the laptop. The best bet is to get a can of compressed air and clean the inside out. This does require some disassembling of the system, so if you are not comfortable doing so I would advise you to take it to a local computer shop.

Another solution would be to purchase a "Laptop Cooler", this will lower your temperatures anywhere from 5-10 degree's, but can get annoying to lug around with you. You can view some laptop coolers here

If you happen to run the Speedfan application, let us know what the temperatures displayed as, and I can tell you if it is running too hot!

HP Pavilion zd8000 keyboard skips characters


The most common reason that your cursor skips around is that you are touching the touch pad when typing. Some are more sensitive than others. On my Toshiba I had that problem, but it has a Fn key that allows me to turn off the touchpad. Problem went away when I went to a mouse instead.
Had a client with a Dell with the same problem. I had to actually physically disconnect the touchpad and her problem went away.
Now as for the first problem, (the HP), I'd say you have a stuck key on the keyboard. It would make that noise.

The popular keyboard problem in another form


Take the key off and check the depressor. Be gentle and try to remove only the key and leaving the retainer. If the depressor has moved or is stuck in a depressed position, this will cause your problem. If the depressor is good, then I'm afraid your keyboard has malfunctioned and will need replaced.

HP Pavilion zv6000 Notebook PC keyboard replaced


Probably the keyboard you got is defective. I have seen buttons working in very bad conditions. When a key doesnt work or several is bad news.

Try to get a replacement. Since you have already reseated this simply check if the flex cable is properly locked, (ear plugs or similar) and not moving.

HP pavilion zd8000, Battery not charging


The problems with the HP Pavilion (Particularly the ZD8000) are sadly well-known by HP. It's not a problem with the battery or the charger or anything you can easily fix. The problem is heat. If you search long enough, you'll find hundreds of people with three problems: 1) the battery stops holding a charge after about 8 months, they buy a new one and get the same problem; 2) certain keys stop working on the keyboard, they remove the battery and the keys work again; 3) permanent lines start to appear on the display and never go away.

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about these problems with the ZD8000, except stop using it as a laptop and ditch the battery. I have been problem-free since I ditched my third battery and just use it with a power cord.

Last year, I filed a formal complaint with the Better Business Bureau regarding HP's failure to acknowledge this problem and recall the machine. Each time I called service, I was instructed to follow the battery initialization procedure. All this does is allow support to get rid of you for 24 wasted hours, after which you have to call again and talk to some one new who tells you to do the same thing. The problem is, the procedure fails because the battery won't hold a chage in the first place. If you get to the end of the procedure with them after wasted days, they tell you to buy a new battery.

The HP ZD8000 is defective and never should have been released with a Pentium 4 processor. It's too hot and fries the battery and damages the screen.
