Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
My laptop just stopped working. Will not boot at all, the fax will start to spin and then just stops. While searching on EBAY, I see there are MANY, MANY of these units with the exact same problem. Is there a standard fix? Given the vast number of dead machines, there is an obvious manufacturing problem. Obviously the laptop is out of warranty, but I would hope that given the widespread nature of this problem in the V2000, Compaq would provide a fix. Please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your help.
There is a specific known issue with the Bios on certain model laptops that once the Bios has failed the laptop will not boot. It happened with my wifes 6000. I searched for a week and then finally found a very obscure article about it. I called HP/Compaq and gave them the symptoms and what I had already done (reseated the memory, hard drive and verified that the AC Adapter was good) Finally they acknowledged that her SN laptop had the known issue and sent me a box to ship it to them for motherboard replacement. The laptop was 4 months out of warranty so if I hadn't found this it would have been junk. Good Luck.
