Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

3 Answers

Screen goes black after windows XP logo, then no response.

After turning power on, the HP logo flashes on the screen, followed a short time later by the Windows XP logo, followed by a single pointer that lasts on a black screen for 10-15 seconds. The screen then goes black and is unresponsive to any input. During all of this the HD light flickers on & off (even after the screen goes black). I've tried F8 with various settings, but no luck. My guru friends have tried reseating ram, emerg. dics, checked fans, ac adapter, etc., all to no solution. Suggestions?

I would suggest checking your hard drive to see whether or not it has a bad sector on it.

This is usually caused by a software error ,imcompatability or conflict .you need to uninstall the last software..if was done via win update it could be near to impossible to determine what was last installed requiring you to reinstall windows ..unless its bad sectors on hd reinstall or repair os and it should sort prob out.
when you reinstall os; system will not find/detect wireless,blutooth,possibly modem and possibly video until the programs/drivers for them are installed..this is normal so download the software/drivers and save them to disk(saves a lot of headaches)

I have a flashing green dot next to the curser on my computer screen. How do I get rid of it? This has happened a couple of times before.


If it has happened before how did you fix it last time?
It is probably caused by some program you have downloaded and installed.

You could try going into control panel and make sure you don't have some unusual mouse pointer assigned.

Is it the actual cursor or the mouse pointer?

Starts round and round in circles


HP and Compaq have issues just like that with several models. Go to the HP website and see if your model is one of them. If it is they will fix it for you at no charge, even if out of warranty. My wife just got hers back a few weeks ago for the same thing. They said they replaced the mother board. It took about 10 business days including shipping.
Hope this helps, if so please rate this assistance. Thanks,Tom

The laptop doesn't boot up always.


I would try the following:
1. Remove the battery completely. If the computer boots properly several times in a row, then the battery may be causing the power supply to do strange things.
2. If you have experience removing laptop components, try removing the hard drive. Because you say the screen goes black (I assume the system powers off) sometimes after the HP logo, I doubt its Windows or a software issue.
3. If HP has a diagnostic CD you can boot to, try that.
4. It may be the power supply acting up. If it charges the battery, and if you can boot to Windows with the battery, try getting a new power supply.
5. Otherwise, it may be the motherboard of the laptop.

Emachines 2792


pull the power plug as soon as the emacines logo comes on
and if that doesn't work pull out the power as soon as the first windows logo screen comes on. it should then come on and give you the option to start in safe mode or regular mode, choose safe mode then after it comes on in safe mode restart the cpu
then it should come on in regular mode i don't know why it works for my emachines cpu but it does . i'm looking at downloading a error fixing program because i'm doing this almost when ever i turn off my cpu hope this helps if not reformat your hard drive andput windows on again it worked last time i had this problem.
