Hp Pavillion zt1114 i think it has something to do with the battery or the motherboard thing that makes it start because it won't start even if plugged, i don't know what to do, i'd like to fix it myself
I am facing the same problem right now with my gateway notebook. My laptop will work with the battery atached but not with the power adapter plugged in. In a case like this, there is probably a problem with the motherboard. I disassembled my laptop and tested the dc adapter on the motherboard with a multimeter while the it was plugged in only to find that there was no voltage going into the circuit. I also noticed that the small post inside the dc adapter was loose. This tells me that I may have a bad dc adapter. But this may not be the case with your laptop but it is possible. If you are not able to do this test then I suggest you have it looked at by a proffessional. I you don't have any experience with circuitry you can easily damage your motherboard. HOPE THIS WAS HELPFUL.

Hello.The most common reasons for power issues are the battery, power jack and power adapter/cord.Power off and remove the battery. If the laptop powers on with just the adapter connected, your battery is faulty.If you move/wiggle the power adapter at the point where it connects to the laptop, and the power goes off and on, the power jack is the problem.The power jack is inside the laptop and either needs soldering or replacement. If a power jack problem, it should be addressed by someone knowledgeable.If no change, the power adapter is probably faulty and needs replacement.Hope this helps.
I think it could be with power port at the side of the machine, check if there is any lights. Or it could be with the Motherboard. Try to use the battery with the laptop with the same model and do the same with the power adapter if its working with the other computer it could be the Motherboard thats having a problem. Check also if its having beeping sounds.
1. Check the adapter
2. Check the processor
3. Check the motherboard if defective replace new one.
Note: You need to know the right spare part number of your motherboard e.i 443776-001. Here's a sample video
Hi Steve, If you haven't gotten any batteries to work properly at all and the problems are different each time, I would say the motherboard is shorting out the batteries and causing weird problems. One last thing to try if possible..
Try a known good working battery, if that battery doesn't work then its verified that the motherboard is bad. If the known good working battery works in that laptop then you got a bad batch and it will be a battery problem.
Since your laptop turns on with the ac adaptor means that the ac adaptor is good.
As others have said, the most common fault with the ZV series is the power socket. However, you mentioned the Lightning Bolt. This indicates that the battery is being charged and it should go out as soon as the battery is fully charged.
If the Lightning Bolt flashes on and off regularly, especially when the power cable is moved, then the socket is at fault and needs replacing.
You can check to see if the battery is receiving a charge by doing the following
1. Right Click the Desktop
2. Click Properties
3. Click the Screen Saver tab
4. Click the Power button
5. Click the Power Meter tab
This will tell you the computer's current power source and whether the battery is charging.
I have replaced several of these sockets on ZV5000s and I'm sure the 6000 will be similar. I would not recommend this job for anyone without technical knowledge, despite some of the websites that say you can do it yourself. You will need to strip the entire laptop down and all but remove the motherboard before the socket can be replaced.
