My friend sent me his Hp pavilion ZT1000 for me to fix. Normally, i am very good at computers, but this laptop has gotten me stumped. Sometimes it boots up 100% perfectly, runs a few hours, and then the screen is still, but the mouse/keyboard doesn't work, nor does anything change. (IE the screen stays still, while running an antivirus, antivirus status doesn't change when the keyboard/mouse stops working.) So the whole laptop crashes, the screen still displays the last image. While that is easily fixed (problem with driver, etc) it does it everywhere else. (windows boot up, hp recovery, running knoppix, even in the bios.) This seriously stumps me. So to sum it all up,
1. laptop randomly crashes whenever it feels like it (1 sec- 3 hrs)
2. While it's crashed, the lcd still displays the last image, but no form of imput works.
3. Sometimes, it boots up to a blank screen, but everything works (can hear fan, hd, and even cd rom spin up, but blank screen)
4. When plugged into annother monitor, it behaves the same way as the lcd screen.
so, does anyone know what i can do to fix this problem? :cool:
