The hard drive holder has enough slack so if the laptop is jostled, the hard drive pulls out of its contacts.
Remove the screws holding the hard drive in,pull out hard drive then push back in to ensure it is properly seated. this worked for me!.

Re: laptop hp pavillion ze4300

Probably bad memory or loose CPU module. First try removing and resetting CPU. You'll need to remove Keyboard, Palmrest, and heatsink and shield beneath Keyboard. You'll need a small Phillips screwdriver to remove screws and small standard size screwdriver to loosen screw holding CPU. After removal/reset, put everything back together and try powering back on. If still same problem, replace memory located on bottom of LT located behind door. Also, you may have a memory module located under Keyboard next to CPU that may be bad.

HP Pavillion zd8000 won't power up

Try attaching a normal VGA desktop monitor to it. There should be a plug either on the sides or the back of the laptop. A blue one. That way you'll be sure.

HP Pavillion dv9700 won't power up

Try removing the battery and using only power cord to turn the laptop on. If that fails, try turning it on without power cord, just on battery.

If none of those work, then most probable cause of your problem is motherboard. Hopefuly you are either under manufacturer warranty or you have extended warranty with your vendor where you've purchased the laptop.

If your laptop turns on on power cord, but without battery, then battery is the problem. Also, if laptop turns on when it's only on battery but it doesn't when you plug ac cord in it, then the adapter is the problem.

Screen doesn't light up

Brand new? please take it back to your dealer. I assume you do have it plugged to the charger and it has power? it doesn't matter if the battery is empty or not, the laptop works with the charger with or without and battery.

seems like you got a faulty laptop.

My hp ze4300 will not turn on

Has there been a power surge meanwhile? If so, try unplugging the power cord, press the power button, reconnect power and try booting. Sometimes works.
