Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
Power on...screen shows compaq...straight away black out...but power still on.Previously right after PC switched on and compag logo showln, it would show Windows XP loading screen...now just black screen.Tried F8...safe mode/ laste workable configuration and Windows starts normally..didn't work. Could it be a Hard disk problem? By the way mine is a Compaq Presario M2000 with AMD Athlon processor.Please help?
Sounds like a hard Drive problem. A virus actually. The Best thing to do if Safe Mode Failed is the Repair Your system, to do this insert your XP CD and wait until it says 'Press any key to boot CD' Press any key and follow instructions to repair windows. If it works, run a virus scan immediately. If Not, take it itno a computer technitian to look at it if you want the stuff on your Hard Drive, of if you feel you don't care too much just wipe the Hard Drive and Re-Install Windows XP. just do the same thing as repair but instead follow the instructions for Installing XP and choose either Clear or Erase Hard drive if you don't want the info or choose don't clrear or Erase if you really want stuff from your hard drive, But run a Virus scan Immediately asap.
Hope This Helps
