Sadly could be anything. Did you check that all the cables are connected internally? If the laptop has a removable processor, reseat it.

Remove A Cmos Battery From A Compaq V2000 Laptop

The Complementary Metal-Oxide Semiconductor (CMOS) in a computer is responsible for storing hardware settings and time on your computer. The CMOS is powered by a small battery and is able to store information whether your computer is turned on or off. While the standard CMOS battery lasts for up to ten years, you may need to replace your CMOS sooner than that. If you password your BIOS and forget the password or need to reset your configuration back to the default, you can remove the CMOS and re-insert or replace it.

1. Unplug the computer from the wall outlet and unplug the AC adapter from the computer.

2. Turn your Compaq Presario V2000 face down and slide the battery release latch to the left to disengage the battery from its position. Remove the battery.

3. Unscrew the screws over the hard drive cover, which is located in the lower right corner of the laptop if your laptop is placed with the battery away from you. Lift the hard drive tab, located on the left side of the hard drive, and slide the hard drive to the left to remove it from the computer.

4. Unscrew the single screw located directly under the optical CD/DVD drive. Insert a very thin item, such as a paper clip or pin, into the hole located on the optical drive to open it. Slide your optical drive out of its tray to remove it.

5. Remove the two screws located on the switch cover, which is directly under the battery. Turn the computer right-side up and open it as wide as it will go. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to lift up the switch cover that is directly above the "F1," "F5," "F11" and "Insert" keys.

6. Unscrew the four screws that hold the keyboard in place. These screws are are located in the upper right corner of the computer under the switch cover that you just removed. Lift the keyboard up and slide it forward until it rests on the palm rest. Unplug the zif connector, which is located directly above the palm rest, to disconnect the keyboard. Lift the keyboard up and out of the laptop.

7. Turn the computer upside down again and remove the memory modules by unscrewing the two screws over the memory compartment located directly below the battery slot. Unclip the two clips located on each side of the memory module to release it from its slot and slide it out of the computer.

8. Unscrew the two screws on the PCI cover directly beneath the memory module. Disconnect the two wireless antennas above the card. Spread the two clips securing the mini PCI card into place and lift the card up and out at a 45-degree angle away from you.

9. Flip the laptop back up on its right side and disconnect the display cable located in the upper left corner above the keyboard area underneath the switch cover you removed earlier. Then remove the two pieces of tape in the upper right corner that hold the wireless antenna in place. Remove the two clips located beneath the tape pieces. Unscrew the two screws on the upper left corner and the two in the upper right corner that hold the display into place. Remove the display assembly.

10. Turn the computer back upside down and remove the remaining 19 screws. Lift the base enclosure straight up out of its place.

11. Locate the CMOS battery, a small circular object, and lift it up out of its place. Leave it out for five minutes and reinsert it to reset your settings. Re-assemble the computer without the battery and plug it into the wall.

I can't post a key to MS Office as that is considered piracy. I can however give you a link to a 60 day free trial of office


After the free trial expires, a license must be purchased.

If you have a legitimate copy of Office Home and Student edition, the product key is on the CD case. If you lost the case, you might be able to contact Microsoft for a new key (For a fee)

It would seem that your backlight is not turning on.
First check to see if the switch that detects that the lid closed is working. I am not sure where it is on this model, but all notebooks have one. If it gets stuck, the backlight stays off.

If it is not the switch, it may be the flourescent backlight
tubes or the inverter, It's not an easy fix, but you can check back here.

Your laptop model is notorious for this problem. It is a loose connection with the wires going through one of the hinges of the flip screen. Open up your computer and find a way to plug the wire all the way back in. It can be a frustrating task so be prepared.

Bad BIOS. Needs a new bios loaded from disc.

HP Compaq... | Answered on Feb 03, 2015

Beep codes are unique to each brand of computer:
Compaq v2000
1 short with 1 long beep = bad bios. Must reload bios from disc.
2 short beeps = general bios failure
for more - do a google search for "v2000 Beep Codes" and go to the link for "bioscentral" - all are listed.

Bad RAM usually causes the computer to crash during the process. An orderly failure to complete the installation usually means a bad hard drive.
