My laptop wont turn on at all,is different to the other problems on

I have a HP pavilion notebook dz8000 bout yr and a half old and few days ago i was using it and something banged and smoke came out of the charger so i took the charger out and it still ran on the battery so i thought it was just the charger, i bought a new charger and now when i press the power button nothing happens at all. i can plug the mains in and it shows there is power running to it but nothing when i press the power button. Any ideas what could be wrong with it and how i can fix it?

    I have the same problem with my zd8000, one second it was running fine for about 5 minutes and then the whole laptop just went dead.

    I have checked the battery charger and it is pushing out 19v of charge but with or without the battery connected it will not power up.

    There are no lights on the laptop to suggest any power is there and it hasnt been knocked, dropped anything.

    I wondered if there was a fuse somewhere on the board which may have blown that can be replaced or is it time to take it down to PC world for the experts to resolve.

    Any advise would be appreciated.

Try removing the battery (instructions in your manual). Now run the computer with just the new charger. Does this work? Try holding down the power button for 10-20 seconds.

Won't turn on

Dealing with overseas tech support people can be frustrating. If the laptop is only a few days old, you really need to contact them first.

Im sure its still covered under warranty, so start there first.
If it wont boot, it could be a number of things.
If you get no where with them, please post back and someone here will try to help.

Laptop shuting down and beeping

Forget about calling HP. Unless you recently purchased it, the warranty is already out. There's a known motherboard problem that HP will warranty ONLY if it's a few months old. Check their website or call if you have half a day to waste. Sorry for being negative, but in reality, there's not much hope.

Here's a "fun option" that has worked for some:
1. Power down the laptop.
2. Unplug the AC cord.
3. Remove the battery.
4. Plug the AC cord in again.
5. Push and hold the power on button for 30-40 seconds.
6. IF it boots up, install the battery and you're good to go.

They say this procedure removes static electricity. Actually, it's a sign of the motherboard going out. Days are numbered. Back up all data files when/if you can.

My laptop doesnt turn on at all or do anything - help

Well, smoke is never a good sign.
Tell me, the 'something banged' thing, could that have been the laptop was being moved and the power cord was jerked at the connection to the laptop?
These are very prone to have problems with the ac jack coming loose from the motherboard (I have 3 in the shop right now with the same problem)
If you can, check and see if it's getting juice to the battery when plugged in using a multimeter.
Good luck
