Hello, I got this Hp Pavilion zD800 not to long ago. Everything was working fine untill one day when I was using it.its said low batteries, then it shut off. And then I unplug the charger and change the outet, and then plug it again it will charge only for a few second . and then stop.And every time it recharge I turn on the laptop its started not to recharge.. any Idea How to fix it?
If you have a multimeter you can test the voltage coming out the end of the AC adapter to make sure your charger is functioning properly. Otherwise as is very common with laptops your DC jack is probably "loose". Meaning the internal part on the laptop side has contacts that usually succumb to general wear and tear and have to be repaired. If you have a laptop repair facility in your area that does laptop repair you'll probably want to take it to them. Or possibly contact HP at 1-800-HP-INVENT to find out the closest repair facility for you.

First uninstall the drivers and then download the latest bios update for your notebook from hp.com and then restart the computer.... then install the latest updated drivers for webcam from hp.com and check this will surely work.
If not then check for quickplay driver update too.
Another thing open task manager and then go to processes and check wethere you can find the webcam running or not if yes then right click and end the task , also check for the programs that might use webcam like if you have installed yahoo or skype messenger end the program task too.
My Zd800 did the same thing and I figured out that the power adapter connection was flakey. I move it around in the back and finally the blue light stays on. I actually replaced one power adapter thinking it was out...turned out to be the connection to the back of the computer. I have tried other power adapters and same results. Considering taking the thing apart and soldering the wires. This computer has been a royal pain the a$$ since I bought it. I will try another laptop manufacturer on my next one. Any suggestions?
