Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook
I have an HP Pavilion ze2000 and it will not power on even while plugged into the wall. A couple of weeks ago it shut down in the middle of me using it, but it powered right back up. Lats week it powered down and after about 15 minutes or so it powered back on. Last night is shut itself down while i was on the internet and this time it will not power back on. It did for a split second (all the lights came on, and it sounded like it was going to start), but then it turned back off and is now currently dead. I really need this laptop for school work. Any ideas of what the problem could be will be GREATLY appreciated.
My ze2202AP,AMD sempron2800,not power on,the problem is one cermet capacitor short,part number PC35 10u/35v.It is in the 18VDC input circuit.

I had this guy fix my ze2000 when it would not power up for $135.00. The problem is if when plugged into the electrical outlet you don't see any power light, the internal DC Power Jack needs to be replaced. It is soldered onto the motherboard, so it will have to be replaced. Others wanted to charge me $200 or more. The $135 included shipping, parts, labor and repair. I found him at http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com
Hope this helps

When it is plugged into the wall do you see an indicator that suggest the battery is charging?
I've fixed a few laptops that developed problems with the socket where you insert the power cord. Over time these power sockets are mechanically stressed by the cable. This can lead to overheating on the motherboard and further damage.
If you don't see any indication that the battery is charging then try gently wiggling the cord to see if you can get it to work.
Assuming none of this is a problem then I agree with Paeroa's suggestion. I've seen a few laptops that become clogged with dust and reduce airflow over the CPU cooling hardware. Intel CPU's shut themselves down before they burn up. If this is the case you'll need to open the laptop and clean out the dust. This is not has hard as it sounds if you can find step-by-step instructions. I've found repair guides for a number of models by searching on the web.
