Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario V2000 won't recognize that it has a disk drive

When you look on My Computer, it doesn't show the drive. Also, when you look at the Device Manager part, it shows the drive with an exclamation point inside a yellow triangle. Whe you click on that, it says: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)" What do I do?

What drive is that? are you refering to an exterenal USB drive? If so, you will probably find that it does not have enough power. try adding an external power supply or a second usb cable.

I was able to connect to my HP Compaq Presario V2000 Laptop to my WiFi Network using NetGear. When I reconfigured the network I could connect to all other network like Dell Lptop , Nokia Smart Phone and HP...


Hi!

Your Compaq V2000 has an Intel Pro Wireless 2200 BG wireles adapter. (doesn't support N, but that's not the point I think)

If your new network configuration is based on WPA/WPA2 encyption, this adapter has some known problems to establish a connection. It works great with WEP, but not so well with WPA.
Sometimes the issue can be solved by installing the latest versions of drivers and software for the wireless adapter.
If it still doesn't work, a known workaround is to disable via device manager all other network adapters in the computer (ethernet adapter), leaving active only the Intel Pro 2200 wireless adapter.


Hope it helped,

Bogdan

I installed a new hard drive. on the compaq presario v2000. all im getting is realek media error. i went into bios set default. no resolve. tried cd rom first. no help.jumper pin is outter two verticle....


Does the laptop BIOS "see" the new drive? If not the drive must be "Initialised" first, otherwise it will not recognise you have a drive in the bay. Place the drive in a USB caddy and using another laptop or your laptop with the old hard drive in it, select Control Panel and Adminastrative Tools. Select Computer Management, From the side panel select Disk Management to view selected drives. The disk drive that is connected via USB will be there. Click the drive and select initialise then format and select a drive letter. OR
With the new drive in the laptop bay, set the BIOS menu, on your laptop, to use DVD/CD ROM drive as first boot device.
Place your System disk in the drive and boot from the disk.
Follow the instructions, (if any) on the screen and let the new system software initialise and format the new drive.
Hope that helps
