I have a problem with my notebook (HP Pavilion zd8080). I usually close the lid (put the machine in hibernate) when I am finished working, when I return to start working (or playing) and open the lid and the machine will not start up, all the lights come on but the screen will remain black. I then have to hold down the power button for about 5 seconds to shut the machine off completely. I can then start the machine normally and continue without any problems till the next time I close the lid.
I ran the HDD check in the Phoenix BIOS and after about 80 seconds it gives me the code #1-07 Fail. I have ran this disc check in the past for the last couple years and always get the same resulting code.
I have also tried to contact HP regarding this but am unable to find anyone that speaks english well enough for me to understand.
I guess I am worried that I do not have too many more times of shutting the machine down before I get the dreaded "blue screen of death".
So in short, Please help me, this was an extremely expensive notebook when I purchased it, and it is faster then alot of machines I have seen before, has an excellent video card and is fast enough to play the most demanding game.
