Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq Presario V2000 will not boot

I have tried everything to get my computer to turn fully on. It has turned on three times out of the last 30. The times it has turned on, the operating system has loaded and I was able to use it to surf the web. The times that it does not turn on, the power button lights up along with the scroll key, caps lock, and the power and cd rom indicator lights on the face of the computer. A clicking noise is heard as these lights flash like it is trying to boot. The clicking sounds like it is coming from the harddrive and the cd rom drive. After about 7 clicks they stop. The power light is illuminated but nothing on the screen. I have tried taking the battery out, resecuring the harddrive, pressing ctrl, alt, delete, even taking out the cd rom out. I have tried numerous times to hold down the power button wait for an hour, then turn it back on to only have the same symptom mentioned above happen. What can I do? Is it time for a new computer? The computer is only about 3 years old. Thanks

The clicking noise from the hard disk indicats that you have a intermitten faulty disk and therefore the computer sometimes boots up. If you manage to get the computer to boot, I would advise you to backup or copy your data. If you can't get the computer to boot up then the hard drive is dead.
You do not need to buy a new computer, just buy a new hard drive, replace the faulty drive and install your Windows operating system, all your device drivers (eg. audio, video, LAN etc.) and all your programs. You or a friend have a few hours of work.

What is wrong when my compaq v2000 beeps 2 times loud when I turn it on but no boot


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.

Remove the battery and just leave it off the computer, then plug in the power cord and try it. If it works with no battery...the battery is completely dead and you need to replace.

Unmounable boot volume


This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.

Try uninstalling the RAM memory for a minute or two and start the machine with no memory, then reinstall the memory and start again, it should boot right up.

Do u have installed recently, some software?
Try to boot up pressing the F8 button, when the menu appears select the option "Windows in safe mode" if u can boot to windows. View our software installed.
If it is not software try, boot whit the windows installation disk enter to the setup and select the option repair, u will go to a DOS prompted window (all black whit white letters) must appear "c:\"
used the command "chkdsk /f /r" let it run he will try to find any problem in the disk.
