HP Pavilion zv5000: Screen blan, power light, fans are on.


I have HP pavilion zv5000 laptop.

Since few months back, power supply jack was giving problem, so I opened it (hoping to easily attach two wire, re-solder power supply jack on motherboard).

I opened-up laptop cover which is at the bottom of laptop.
Also removed harddrive and battery.

I finally gave up power jack fixing, since solder connection is not easily accessible (at least from the side which I opened laptop. and I was not too confident that I should further open other parts. So I decided to put it back and take it to a shop/repair center.

(BTW, When I hold/tag on power cord, laptop seems to get power, and the power jack seemed to be loose on the motherboard, so I confirmed that it was power jack-to-motherboard connection problem)

In this process, un-knowingly, I opened four screws that fix CPU-Heatsink to motherboard, and detached CPU from motherboard. Only when I turned it upside down, and looked at CPU, I realised that I had detached CPU from motherboard !

Anyways, carefully I put CPU, Batter, Harddrive together, and turned on laptop (by holding/wiggling power cord by hand to a point where power light comes on).

BUT, now the screen is BLANK !

(it used to try to boot up before I opened up).
Both fans seems to turn on, and the harddrive light flashes normally.

I need all the help in resolving this issue.

Thanks in advance for looking into this !

Lala linda is right. . . repairing the power pin isn't that expensive ... In fact I've fixed some myself and it's really not that hard. It is time consuming and tedious to make sure that all the bits and pieces fo back in the right place. Take some pix as you take it apart and you will find that's it much easier when you go to re-assemble the unit. btw . . . The power pins are available on the net for $ 10 or less usually.

Also . . .Once you get it fixed get a Cable retention device to make sure you don't damage the pin a second time. Personally I recommend (and use) this one.

Newer HP Pavilion dv6000 turned off while in use and wont turn on

1.Start your computer and see if your hear your fan noise,and cannot see anything on screen then there is problem with your power supply.

2.If you cannot hear your fan noise,and do not see anything on screen,then there is problem with your motherboard

3.if you hear fan noise and can see something on screen,then it is the issue with your hard disk (very less cases)

Mostly it would be the 2nd case that you will have to get your motherboard replaced

My laptop is not turnnig-on!

Try removing the battery and running from the AC power supply only. If this works, your battery probably can no longer hold a charge and the battery will need to be replaced.

Removing the battery allows the power supply to power your laptop rather than trying to charge a dead battery

If you have'nt done any upgrades like windows or memory

I think you just need a new fan
possibly power supply
if you take it to a small pc shop they will test power and fan for you usually on the spot at little or no cost
