Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. If you are getting an audible click from the hard drive, it is the arm hitting. Even then, sometimes you can get them to boot up on occasion.

The hard drive/SATA issue would depend on your motherboard connection. I think that there may be adapters to convert from a IDE to a SATA, but I haven't ever used one.

I have formate xp and my audio driver is not working pleses help me


Hello sir,

You need to install the drivers using the mother board CD. Incase you dont have the mother board cd then you can contact your computer vendor and find out the mother board details and then download the compatible version from the internet.

Hope this helped.

My compaq presario do not start, instead it make two sounds like a beep and then nothing, what coulds happen. it is the mother board or is the hard disk?


It is from the mother board which means that there will be some errors on the motherboard ,if the booting is not done in proper way then .The mother board produces beep sounds. better re-install the operating system first , then check that the sound is producing or not , else better contact a compaq service center. they will be able to fix it for you.

My Compaq Presario v2000 laptop does not power up after pressing the power on switch. It all started whenever I hibernated it. But it worked after several attempts. Now it has become dead. Can you help?...


Generally this type of problem arises due to Battey. But in u r case it appears like a Mother Board Problem.So u better to visit nearer HP/compaq Service Station u can extende warranty for another year if ur previous extended warranty expired within 6 months...there is a provision in HP Customer Support.
Apart from this You can buy third party Mother boards compatible for V 2000 in other Laptop Acessories store
