Question about HP Pavilion zd7000 Notebook

1 Answer

Power goes on, I can hear the fan, HP logo shows up, Windows xp begins, then everything shuts down. I tried repeatedly to "discharge" the machine by unplugging everything, taking the battery out, then holding the power button down for 30 seconds. Didn't help.

This sounds like a heat issue. Strong processor + somewhat poorly placed intake + passive exhaust = really hot, really fast. Make sure the intake fans on the underside are working steadily, and either buy or improvise something that will give those intake fans a bit of breathing room, so to speak.

This could also mean the drive is failing. If you're feeling brave, try burning an Ubuntu linux cd (or some other linux flavor -- though ubuntu is probably the least intimidating) and try to boot to a 'live session'. You should get a menu to choose a language, then a menu that lets you 'try ubuntu without any change to your computer'. Pick that and let it go. It should boot into a 'live session'. Poke around in the menus at the top of the screen for 'Disk Utility'. It will let you do all kinds of stuff, including checking the overall health of the drive without breaking the bank for no good reason.

dont understand properly, there are2 causes one is restarting after showing Win logo - it means your OS has corrupted and you have to reinstall/repair them (first try with safe mode if still same problem then do reinstall)/ second shutting down (power off) while logo showing - it means your CPU Fan is not running or running very slow/ or CPU heat sink not connected properly, any how the problem with in CPU and the Fan check them and problem will resolved.

The laptop loads up, lets me sign in, then goes blank, no icons


Try booting to the safe mode (F8 at boot) and see if you can log in via the safe mode. If you can't, try booting to your Windows CD, go to recovery console and run CHKDSK /R
If you still can't log in, try running diags see if the hard drive lists a failure.
if no hardware failure found, there and none of those solutions work, then re-installing windows will likely be the final resolution

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

Windows XP not starting after power outage


I have just in fact a few days ago came across a similar issue. As to whether or not your hdd needs to be replaced is uncertain. What I can tell you is it seems as though the MBR or master boot record has become corrupt or one of the reader arms inside the hdd has failed.
Refering to the corrupted theory, may be simply fixed by booting off of a win xp cd and reformatting your drive and reinstalling windows after the format.

HOWEVER

In my case even booting off of a xp cd did not resolve the issue, every time anything would attempt to read from the hdd the computer would reboot. I suspected hdd failure at first, but this was not the case. It turns out it was a virus that infected the ntfs.sys and the MBR and put a binary code into those 2 files to reboot the machine.

Luckily at work (IT industry) I have a norton ghost server and was successfull at reimageing the hdd, doing so erases the MBR and everything else for that matter and rewrites it. However in doing so I lost all data that was on the hdd to begin with.

If you are not very tech savvy I would probably recommend hdd replacement however since you do have a HP which was prebuilt with xp, you don't have a xp install cd and thus unable to reload windows. I recommend finding a friend that has the xp install cd or you will have to go to the store and buy XP.
