My laptop doesnt turn on at all or do anything - help

I have a HP pavilion notebook dz8000 bout yr and a half old and few days ago i was using it and something banged and smoke came out of the charger so i took the charger out and it still ran on the battery so i thought it was just the charger, i bought a new charger and now when i press the power button nothing happens at all. i can plug the mains in and it shows there is power running to it but nothing when i press the power button. Any ideas what could be wrong with it and how i can fix it? could it be somethin to do with the battery or the motherboard? or what
cheers

Sounds like the 19V supply shorted to the Data circuit killing the Supply line. Its been seen here before and if it popped/smoked you will be able to see the components that failed. Also be sure HP sold you a 180 Watt power brick.. The 120 W is not enough for these monsters. Good luck!

Well, smoke is never a good sign.
Tell me, the 'something banged' thing, could that have been the laptop was being moved and the power cord was jerked at the connection to the laptop?
These are very prone to have problems with the ac jack coming loose from the motherboard (I have 3 in the shop right now with the same problem)
If you can, check and see if it's getting juice to the battery when plugged in using a multimeter.
Good luck

A thin line appears in the display


It could be the video card or the LCD display is going bad. I would suggest contacting HP support regarding this matter. Hopefully you registered it with them when you bought it. Most computers have a one year warranty from the manufacturer. Did you buy an extended warranty with this machine? If you have an extended warranty from the place you bought it, contact them.

HP Pavilion zd800, recharing problem


If you have a multimeter you can test the voltage coming out the end of the AC adapter to make sure your charger is functioning properly. Otherwise as is very common with laptops your DC jack is probably "loose". Meaning the internal part on the laptop side has contacts that usually succumb to general wear and tear and have to be repaired. If you have a laptop repair facility in your area that does laptop repair you'll probably want to take it to them. Or possibly contact HP at 1-800-HP-INVENT to find out the closest repair facility for you.

My laptop wont turn on at all,is different to the other problems on here.help


Try removing the battery (instructions in your manual). Now run the computer with just the new charger. Does this work? Try holding down the power button for 10-20 seconds.
