Your ROM BIOS is asking you where to find bootable media, and when you tell it the HDD (hard disk dive), the ROM BIOS can't find a bootable partition on it and just quits, leaving the screen blank.

So, either your HDD is no longer connected to the system bus (was the laptop dropped recently?), or
someone (or something - aka virus/worm/trojan/malware/rootkit, etc.) has erased your bootable
OS (operating system) from the hard drive.

Fix: boot from a "Recovery CD" and use the utilities thereon to repair your OS (or at least find what's left of it), and try to reboot.
Failing that, run any/all diagnostics that your ROM BIOS has - especially memory tests and HDD diagnostics. Why?
(a) bad/jarred loose memory (RAM cards) will prevent booting
(b) an HDD that fails low-level diagnostics may never be salvageable and may have to be replaced -
it actually may have had a head crash - which tends to happen when a ZD8000 notebook is
dropped while the system is running - or a head can crash for no apparent reason.

If you can get the system to boot to SAFE mode - run sfc (system file check) as your first attempt
to repair the operating system - its already in Widows, here's how to run it:

START > run > sfc

As soon as you can get beyond safe mode, update your favorite anti-virus package database and
run one (or more ) deep scans, until the last scan that ran to completion found nothing.

My Mointor Is Blank


HP will not admit it but there is a consistent problem with their zd8000 model. The video card (unfortunately part of the system board) needs to be replaced. We have seen a good number of these computers coming in with the same problem. Try starting your system in VGA mode. You can do this by hitting F8 at start up. If you now have a video screen then you know their is a problem with your video card or video card driver.

Listen up, I have had a pretty bad virus on my computer before where this guy hacked in and created his own user account on my computer! Will, I noticed that my computer was detecting any viruses! Thats because he put a virus on my virus detector, so it couldnt detect viruses! I downloaded a different virus detector and got his viruses off of my computer right away! Try downloading a different virus protecter and try that!
