Question about HP Pavilion ze4400 Notebook

Problem with HP laptop - starting on for a second and then dying

I have a laptop HP pavilion ze4400 with AMD Athlon processor, which I bought 5 years ago. When i try to start it, it flashes for a second, the fan starts rotating, but all of a sudden everything goes off... Even for under a second... No sound, nothing on the screen - just a moment flash and off... the problem started to happen when i dissambled the laptop in order to put some paste above the processor, cause it was all dried out and the laptop was heating up like a hot-plate... so much, that it would just turn off at some point, after working for an hour or so (on AC power, battery is generally gone already)... So after i put the paste and put on the flat metal covering above the processor, which is connected with the fan, my problems started... I tried to reset the laptop, tried to replace the battery (the small one on the MB), but nothing helps... I'm at a loss.
If somebody has some idea, please advice, Thank you in advance!

Try reseating the Processor, and checking all the connections on the inside again, also try switching the RAM around such as trying only one RAM stick, one in each slot, if you only have one RAM stick try different compatible RAM.

Try using just the ac adapter and see if that works. Make sure the battery is disconnected.

The dv6000 series was commonly affected by the video card heating up and reseating itself. This was usually a soldering issue. You have a few options, You can either replace the motherboard, or have the motherboard reflowed. Unfortunately the video card itself is not detachable or individually replaceable.

I personally would recommend the second option as purchasing another dv6000 board will likely end you up in the same situation a year or 2 later.

My AMD 3200+ 400/333 chip has died, what can I replace it with? The motherboard is an Asus A7N8X.


Anything in AMDs Socket A line of processors should work.

The AMD Athlon XP 3200 was one of the best processors that would work in that board. Good luck finding one though.

This sounds like a processor or system board failure. Most likely it is the processor. If the unit is still under manufacturer warranty contact them for replacement.
