Question about HP Pavillion ZV6000 Notebook
I had this problem as well on my zv6000, working for a while on battery but not long at all on AC power. After searching for answers I decided that it was overheating, or at least sensing that it was overheating. When I opened the case and found very little blocking fans or cooling fins, so I decided to change the processor. The heat sink compound was certainly adequate and pasty, so I just swapped from another zv6000. That seemed to fix the problem completely. I was able to run all day on AC after that. Disassembly instructions here, http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00364919.pdf, may help.

Is this on battery or power supply?
If on AC power supply, then it sounds like a heat related issue.
Make sure you can hear the cooling fan running and you may need to blowe the dust out of it with a can of compressed air.

Tips for a great answer:
What you are referring to is also known as the BIOS password, which can be cleared by removing the power cord, and removing both of the batteries. Leave it for 5 minutes, then reinsert only power cord & internal battery (leave main battery out temporarily) and start it.
