    I'm afraid I've mistyped my bios password---not once, but twice on my new (to me) HP Pavilion zv5000. My keyboard has some sticky keys, and a couple that you have to almost hammer on to get it to print the character.

    I know how to clear the bios password on a desktop, but I have no clue on a laptop. Anybody know what I can do?

This is a common HP laptop problem.
Please try these steps, if they dont work you will have to do a restore.
Please let me know how you make out.

My laptop screen is black. All light across the


Do you see the BIOS boot up phase, which is the bit in the beginning of booting the computer where you see DOS like white text on a black background?

If you do, there is a good chance that your problem is as simple as a Windows configuration issue. If not, you may have a short in the wires that connect the screen to the motherboard.

The first thing to try is to connect the computer to an external monitor and see if it will display.

Next, try booting in safe mode.

Then try booting from a CD.

It is possible to replace laptop screens, but it is usually not worth it.

HP Pavillion dv9000 will not boot up in normal mode, only safe.


Have you tried an XP repair?
Then you can save your data .
XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I have an HP Pavillion ZE2000 laptop and it will nto boot up, push button to turn it on. goes to windows page then goes black and nothing happens will nto boot all the way up to windows page with icons. is...


press f8 at startup to get to the windows startup menu, choose "last known good configuration" If that fails, you can choose "disable automatic restart" and the BSOD, Blue screen will appear and give you an error, you can also goto safe mode with the f8 key on startup, choose safe mode, and then click yes at the prompt to start the system restore, pick a date and time the PC worked, and try that.If that doesn't work, you need to restore the PC to factory default state, by using or purchasing restore disks, you would have been asked to make them when you 1st powered on the PC, if you don't have the CD's call HP and order them.

Can you get into safe mode? If so then do a system restore to the last known date that you know the laptop was booting properly.

Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.
