Question about HP Pavilion ze4300 Notebook

1 Answer

ZE4300 Device lock

Pls help, when I boot up, it turns on, with a black screen, you can see the cursor blinking but that is as far as it goes. If you hit ESC quickly you can read "device lock". I have removed HDD and DVD ROM, still no luck!

You will a full blown version of whatever software you want to install. Also try using the F8 key during bootup. See if the computer will boot up into Safe Mode. You should be able to made System restore disks from there if it will get that far.

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

this problem occurs when while booting some USB mass storage device is connected with the laptop so disconnect devices like printers or flash drive while booting and you can also do this by a setting in BIOS to stop booting from flash drive

Black screen and in the upper left corner there is a cursor theat is blinking ... and teat is all


It sounds like a problem loading the operating system. Try booting from an installation CD to see if anything comes up... if it loads from the CD, there could be a problem with your hard drive.
When it turns on, try entering the BIOS by pressing the correct key (usually DEL, F10, F12, or F2) Make sure that the boot device is set to your hard drive. If you do this and it loads with an error saying 'insert boot media' or 'boot device failed' you'll have to either try fixing your boot sector (which can get tricky, but I'll walk you through it if you really want to attempt it) or a much easier fix, reinstall the operating system.

Boot problems


Hi,

Often, this indicates that the laptop could not find its default boot device which would be your hard drive. Pls enter the BIOS/CMOS setup and determine if your laptop can auto detect the hard disk. If detectable, save and exit, if not the drive may require replacement.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
