Hi,
I have acquired a HP ZD8000 laptop, which wont turn on.

When I press the on button the LED's light up, and sometimes the fans begin to fire up, but only for a split second. When I press the on button whilst both the battery is connected and the power supply is aswell the charging LED goes out when I press the on button and I have to remove power supply and reconnect for the charging LED to come back on again.

Please HELP!!

Unplug the AC adapter from your computer.

Remove the main battery.

Remove the memory sticks in their slots and clean their gold contact with a pencil eraser.

Keep pressing the power button for about 1 minute.

Put everything back in again then start your computer.
