Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
Previous problem http://www.fixya.com/support/t441684-power_problem
I finally got my new power adapter and have discovered a whole new problem. First off, I've done all of the RAM resets, taken out the battery etc. etc. as recommended by HP and still no go. Whats happening now is i'm getting the power light on the front of the computer but when I try to power on, the battery indicater light flashes three times, then nothing. Also, if I have to send it in, how long does HP normally take to fix it and send it back? Any help is appreciated.
A lot of the zd 8000 overheat and turn off, mine constantly does this on hot days of i i dont have enough airflow under my laptop. Also Hp just released a recall for the zd8000 batteries which i just ordered today. I was notified through my email so check yours too

There is probably a series of beeps when doing the ram resets. Try taking out the harddrive, then turn it on and off, then installing the harddrive back into the laptop. Doing this will get the laptop to recognize the harddrive. Hp will run a diagnostics check and then your problem will be fixed also. How long depends on the shipping.

I found a FIX! As it turns out my wife kind of figured this one out. She noticed that the battery pack was still in my backpack and someone had hooked up her battery pack to my ZD8000. My ZD8000 takes alot more juice than her laptop, which is HP also. But the same light flashed three times on the front. When I used the right battery pack it turned right on.
