Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

It will not power on

After using my computer I put it in stanby mode. Approximately 1 hour later, I went to start it and it would not turn on. It was not plugged in at the time, so I plugged it in. It still would not start. I removed the battery, nothing. I let it charge overnight and still NO POWER. There is no reset button and I have tried the HP customer support (using my other comp.) but I cant get connected. The computer had been operating fine until then. I had just recently installed internet explorer 7(which was a pain), I dont know what else to try. Any suggestions?

Last time I had that happen I had to replace my hard if you try what the other gentleman said and it dosent work find out the make and model of your hard drive and they useually have pretty good warranty and fair support you can useually get a diagnostic program for hard drive if you can get to the internet on another comp you can download and copy to floppy disk then go into your bios and change boot up sequence so it checks floppy first unless you dont have a floppy if not burn to cdrom disk and make cdrom first in boot up process.

Re: it will not power on

Not to takeaway from the excellent posting from Sandrew but from your initial description I wasn't sure if you had removed the battery and at the same time disconnected the A/C power source and let sit for a few minutes. I typically disable both the suspend and hibernation modes by default on my users PCs but occasionally they reactivate it. This procedure usually solves the problem for me.

Re: it will not power on

If you are able to get to the motherboard, can you locate the CMOS battery (flat 3V disc shaped battery). If you are able to remove it for 10 minutes or so; or locate the 'JBAT1' terminals on the motherboard and move jumper or similair from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds then back to pins 1-2. Either of these should erase the bios settings which may be corrupt, stopping the boot up or bringing from standby. I'm not sure if this will be possible for you to do as this is for normal desktop pc motherboards, although the proceedure will be the same.

My Asus K55A-DH71 laptop, was fully charged less than 24 hours ago; it hasn't been used or on since, and when i powered it up, it only had 6% power.

Fully charge it and take the battery out and let it sit for 24 hours and then put the battery back and power it on. Sounds like the battery is losing its life.

My display screen goes on and off

I find sleep mode nothing but trouble, eventually corrupts window files over extended use, go into power options, go to stand by and select never and click apply, next go to hibernate "top right" and click, make sure the check box is clear, if not! remove check and click apply and restart your laptop.

Toshiba satellite A200 - press power to turn on the machine and get blank screen and 3 beeps then nothing. Computer was left in sleep state for approximately 2 hours and now refuses to wake or reboot...

Try to unplug the power supply and take the battery out. so it means there is no power going to the laptop. now press and hold the power button down for approximately 1 minute.
After that put the battery in and plug the adapter back.
Try to turn the laptop on most probably it will come on
If it still does the same thing contact ur laptop manufacturer

MX6448 won't boot; black screen.

It seems that you don't remove the battery when you use the Notebook. This practice shortens the life of the battery because, when you use the a/c adapter and the battery, your battery is alternately charging and discharging all the time. The cells in the battery eventually die.

From what you describe, it sounds like the power strip inside the Notebook (where you plug in the adapter cord) has been damaged and needs to be replaced.

Your computer is not a total loss. Just have that power strip and the battery replaced and your Notebook should be up and running again.

And, in the future, if you just remove the battery when your kid uses the computer, or if you are going to be using it for over 1 hour. Save the battery to use when you need the mobility.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.


You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps
