"No IDE device" in BIOS drive selftest in HP Pavilion zd8000

Somebody spilled water on my HP Pavilion zd8000 notebook keyboard. I din't notice until having the machine turned on repeatedly from power adaptor for a minute or so. I spent the following day taling the thing into pieces and drying it out with hot air.

Thje resulting condition is that the nachine is trying to book from network.I press F10 on startup to enter the Setup, and on the Tools screen it gives me the "No IDE device" message when I try to run the hard disk drive selftest. I tried this with HDD or Optical drive only; no difference.

My conclusion is that the most likely cause is dead IDE controller. I'm basically trying to find out now if the controller is intergrated on the motherboard.

Any hints on resolving the situation appreciated...

If i press the space bar on my laptop it displays the letter X, what seems to be the problem?


Have you or someone else spilled water or other liquid on the keyboard? It's either that or a virus.
To clean the virus download AVG for free. Search for it in google.

To clean the keyboard is much more difficut. Probably best to take it to a shop if you're not that handy with electronics.

Keyboard overheating


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 laptop will not boot windows...IDE device not found


You usually get that message when the hard drive has crashed.

Try removing the hard drive from the unit, then reseat it back into place.

Hopefully it was just dislodged a little bit.

Let me know what happens.

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.
