Hi all,

I have an HP Pavilion ZE5300.  It just started to not boot.
When I push the power button, the lights come on, the fan
turns for about 3 seconds then shuts off and nothing elso.
Nothing shows up on the screen.  What is the sequence of
parts you would try to replace to get this thing up and running
again?  Any other advice is greatly appreciated.

  If it doesn't beep or show anything on the screen, it sounds like it
isn't even completing POST. If that's the case motherboard may be
bad.. or the CPU. Usually if anything else is faulty you'd get beeps
from the BIOS during the POST telling you what is bad, or you'd see
errors on the screen. I'd get a second opinion, but you might want to
price those.. The service manual for this comp is:
Good luck!

Got a new laptop with 4 times the speed and only cost 25% more
than the cost of fixing the old one.  Sometimes falling prices works
in the consumers favor.
