Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook
First of all, make sure that the issue is with the Speakers or with the Audio Card of the notebook.
First, download and install the Audio Drivers of the Notebook from the link below :
Please save the file in the Notebook and double click it after the download completes to install the drivers.
Restart the computer once the installation is completed.
Now, try playing any audio file using Windows Media Player.
If you are not able to get any audio from the speakers, try pluging Headphones into the Headphone Jack of the Notebook.
If you are able to listen audio from the Headphones, the issue is with the Speakers where you need to replace them.
However, if you are not able to listen audio either from the Speakers or from the Headphones we need to suspect the Sound Card.
Contact HP Chat support and find the Part Number of the Speakers if there is audio from the Headphones.

SOURCE: no power on HP Pavilion ze2000
Remove the power cord and the battery. Hold down the power button for up to one minute to discharge the laptop.
Re-install the battery and power cord and see if it turns on.

I know that you had a chat about this matter, and I hope that your issue was solved. However, I had made a note of it when I saw the chat go through. I was unable to help at that time, but remembered having seen something of this nature and wanted to follow through on it.
Although the ze2000 is not listed, other 2000 models are listed in the following link as defective - and recognized as such by HP - with this very specific defect. (Please see http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/fastFaqLiteDocument?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=18703&docname=c01087194.)
Again, if your issue has already been solved, congratulations. Otherwise, I hope that the information provided here will be of use to you, either in fixing the equipment problem yourself (perhaps with a BIOS update) or by convincing HP to do something about it. At least you would be armed with good solid documentation of their recognized issue!

if the fan is not turning you can check in your power options to see if you have your fan is configured to run all the time. if this does not work you will need to replace the fan.

seems to provide the best thorough approach to getting those drivers installed & working.
However, someone claims, on this forum page(last post on the page) that all you need to do is use the "windows online driver search" function, and it will handle all of the messy work of locating, downloading & installing.
I hope that helps.
