Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

I have a hp zv5000 that a friend gave me. I don't know the history of this particular laptop. I recently bought a new battery for it so I could finally try it out. When I turn on the power, i can hear the hard drive start and the fan motor, but nothing else. The screen doesn't light up, i see no cursor on the screen, nothing! I connected another monitor to it and I get nothing there either. Can you give me any clue of what the problem MAY be. I don't have the cash to purchase anything else right now, but would this unit be worth having repaired (depending on the severity of the problem)???

It seems to be a "dead" motherboard -- very expensive to replace.

Can you return the battery to the store, explaining that your computer died?

Failing that, try to sell the brand-new battery on eBay (or CraigsList.org)

Separately, try to sell the AC adapter on eBay.

Remove the disk-drive from the computer,
and give it (and the files that it contains) back to your friend.

Separately, try to sell the laptop "for parts" on eBay.
Somebody may want to buy the LCD screen & the CD/DVD drive & the wireless adapter, and would take the whole laptop, in order to "scavenge" those components.

Pavillion zv5000 won't boot


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.

Sorry to say, but I think you'll need to contact HP support on this. They have a great chat feature that they can help you on.

I just think most people will be hesitant to assist you with bypassing passwords, but I could be wrong!

Hope this helps, anyway.

It is most likely a motherboard problem. You would have to take it to a service center for diagnostics. If it is the problem it may be time for a new laptop
