    Same problem here. I used fdisk to delete and recreate the partition, so I know that the hard drive is functional. I use the windows xp install disk and get the same error...no hard drive found. ANy help would be appreciated.

Boot into Setup and run the TOOLS / PRIMARY HDD TEST / SHORT TEST.

If it fails, try another HDD.

If OK, verify Boot Order is Floppy, CD-ROM, HDD. Exit Setup.

Print Table 1 Low Level Format instructions from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/106419

Boot with a DOS disk that contains Debug. Run the Table 1 script. Turn V5000 Off.

Boot with the HP Operating System CD. XP install should now proceed normally.

Good luck.

I am trying to do a system recovery on my Compaq Presario SR2050NX in order to give it away. I have tried using the F10 System Recovery function and have also used "Start, All Programs, PC Help &


Recovery/Restoration Disk

Yes, I read what you stated

In order to remove all your personal information; at least in the extent you have indicated; you need the Restoration Disk,
or a Full Installation disk. As in a new genuine copy of Windows.

Restoration Disk is a LOT cheaper than a new genuine copy of Windows.

[Microsoft makes one Master disk. From it all GENUINE copies are made, and sold to the consumer]

Going with information from the US;
The disk is free

The shipping and handling is not

$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Call 800-474-6836
24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Have the Serial Number written down to give to the nice representative.
This is located in the white Service Tag, on the back of the desktop computer.
S/N = Serial Number

Restoration disk installed, when you are asked choose Full Install.
Destructive Installation

Takes the computer back to Day 1 from the factory

All your personal info is gone

Now let's talk a minute
Your personal information isn't really gone. Even with a 'shredder' program that writes 0's and 1's, hundreds of times over the information on the harddrive, the information is STILL retrievable.

FBI and other agencies, have pulled info off of harddrive's that have been used by drug cartel's, that the computer was in a purposely bombed out building.(Drug lord/s did it)

The harddrive's were BADLY burned, but there was still enough info left.
Bye-bye bad guy's.

To TRULY get rid of any personal info on a harddrive, take it out, smash it with a hammer until very flat, and then burn it.
MAYBE this will do it.

What are the chances of someone, who has the know how to remove your old info?




Really?

Broken touchpad on compaq v5000 series


Disassemble the laptop, down to where you can remove the top case cover, and get to the Touchpad. (AC adapter, {Charger}, removed, and battery removed)

Here's how:

1.http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=499847&lang=en&
This is HP.com/Support, and the Manuals page for the Compaq Presario V5000 CTO laptop. (Even if it isn't your exact model, your laptop is part of the Presario V5000 Series, and this information transfers directly over)

On this page I would like you to click on ->
Compaq Presario V5000 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service
Guide <- in blue.
It states that it's a 'guide', but it's a Service Manual, believe me!

This is a PDF file download. After you click on it, you may not see
anything happening for up to 30 seconds. Usually after 10 seconds
you will see the first page. I caution you to Not look through it, until it has fully downloaded. You may accidentally break the connection.
AFTER it has fully downloaded, you can save it to your computer.
This way you can burn it to a CD disk, and look at it anytime you want. (You can also delete it off of your computer, and free up harddrive space, plus you can put the disk in another computer, and view it as you work on your laptop)

To do this click on the Floppy Disk icon. This is in the upper header, and is the second icon from the left. Hovering your mouse over it will briefly reveal, "Click to save this file to your computer or another location"
If you do not have your downloads set to be saved to your My Documents folder, this pdf file will go to your desktop screen.
(c00700903.pdf)

Suggest you start with Page 77 first, then on Page 125 (Base Enclosure and Top Cover), you'll find the info for removing the Top Cover. The Touchpad is in the Top Cover.

Compaq Presario v5000 won't turn on


If the laptop posts: (power on self test) and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short ,do the following:
if you have a bootable anti virus disc use it to check for any viruses , if not
try a recovery disc,
both will try to access the hard drive.
if they do not work,(nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.
laptop does not post:
remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate where the ram lives
remove the memory sticks, clean the gold edges with a pencil eraser both sides and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
swap them around if you have more than one,
if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible, or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may or may not do that for you)
if you can establish that the ram is ok, and anti virus and recovery disc's do not work,then it is most likely, the motherboard has failed .
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.
