    My HP Pavilion zt-1135 WILL power up from the adapter without a battery installed (or with a dead one). I agree that something else is wrong.

    I checked the that, it's at 2.something v which is lower than that of a desktop but it is different battery and I'm not sure what the voltage should be. I completely pull the thing apart and there is nothing obviously damaged. I may look into both batteries a bit more. I can also get the power button board for pretty cheap, may try one of those. I don't think I can get a mobo for this thing for less than $100 and if I end up needing that, I'll just part it out on ebay.
