Re: Compaq Presario V2000

Somthing thats worth trying is going into my computer, right click on the cdrom drive and click eject if it works that way then its software thats stopping it from ejecting, if it still dont work take a paperclip and push it in the small hole in the cdrom drive and it will pop out its only a temporary thing but it works to get the cd out.. All the Best John

Compaq presario 700us will play cds wont play dvds

Try to put your laptop always on flat surface. Uneven base gives angle to the already tiny clearance space for the disc. Could be that the DVD disc run coz its finer, it will spin much slower than CD disc.

Hope i give you some good observation.

I have a compaq persario v2000 that will not turn on.

1. The power-connector has broken-away from the motherboard. So, no power reaches the motherboard.
2. Dead motherboard.
3. Dead CPU

Good luck.

Have you recently added any software?

It seems to be looking for a driver, etc and can't locate it, so it is "hanging".
