Question about HP Compaq Presario v4000 Notebook

1 Answer

I need to look inside my compaq presario 4000 laptop

I dropped it 18 inches on it's end. Now it switches off and restarts if I knock the disc drive (now not working) end.
Are there on-line manuals available for free with pictures?
Regards
Dennis Buttery

Compaq presario f730us when i turn it on all i get is ntldr is missing press ctrl+alt+del to restart when i do this all get is the same thing over and over how do i fix this i do not have recovery cd


You may need a system disc. Downloadable from Microsofts web site.
Check the bios setting and ensure drive C is first boot device, if it is you will need to put the system disc in the dvd drive and choose repair. If there is no hdd, check the plug and socket on the end of the drive and prepare to purchase a new drive.

V3000 doesn't recognize CD


Sounds like a broken drive to me, I knocked one of my laptops on the floor once and had the same problem, I couldn't open it, didn't try your paper clip trick though.

I ended up having a new better drive fitted... unfortunately it sounds like your gonna have to put your hand in your pocket!

insert the disc into the drive, restart the computer.If it doesn't boot from disc, restart again.
As it restarts, press and hold F8(may be F2 or F12 depending on the settings)until the boot options screen appears. Using the arrow up/down keys select drive "d" or what ever drive letter represents the drive you put the disc into.
It will now(or should) continue to boot from the disc, follow the onscreen instructions to restore.

Restarting problem


This sounds like an overheating problem.
Check the exhaust slots on the back and or bottom of the laptop and remove and clogged up dust.

Presario C700 notebook


It sounds to me, since you said it was dropped, that the hard drive may have lost its firm connection to the motherboard. This would cause a bootable disc message to appear since the computer cannot find the operating system stored on the hard drive.

I would try removing the hard drive and reseating it.
Not sure if this is your exact model, but here is a maintenance guide for the C700 (see page 41 for replacing the hard drive, but in your case it will just be removing the hard drive and putting it back in.)
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01301275.pdf

If this is not the correct manual for your model, you can find a list of all C700 models here. http://h20180.www2.hp.com/apps/Lookup?h_pagetype=s-001&h_client=S-A-R163-1&h_page=hpcom&submit.y=0&submit.x=0&lang=en&cc=us&y=0&x=0&h_lang=en&h_cc=us&h_query=Presario+C700&x=0&y=0

If reseating the hard drive doesn't work, let me know and I can walk you through some other steps.

Also, can you clarify that what disc you inserted in the drive to get that error?

Hope this helps! : )
