Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

File path trouble

I am "repairing" my os on a Compaq Presario v2000 using the repair discs that came with the notebook new. Everything seemed to be going ok until I received a file needed" display. It states;
The file asma on Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 2 CD is needed.
Type the path where the file is located, and then click OK.
Copy file from: GLOBALROOT\DEVICE\CDROM0\1386
C:\SWSETUP\SP31090
C:Drivers\Sony\USB
C:
Any help would be appreciated

    After using the system repair disc I cannot finish the repair as the program continues to loop back to a "Files Needed" screen looking for an ASMS file and the path needed to find it. Apparently this is a big problem as when googled it brings up many looking for a solution.

What happens when you cancel through the file needed error....? it looks like setup is looking for USB drivers...you should be able to cancel the install of those drivers and add them later when windows is up and running.....failing that t looks like the drivers it is searching for are in the i386 directory....so instead of copying file from "globalroot\device\etc\etc you should point the path to the i386 directory on the repair disk....possibly D:\i386\

I get nine beeps when I try to turn on my HP Compaq desktop computer.


you have a corrupted OS system file, if you have the original Windows CD you can insert and boot with it follow instructions and will need to re install the OS, by performing a repair. BE AWARE that you could delete all you programs and personal files, if you select the wrong procedure.

Unmounable boot volume


This is an operating system error, and you will need an operating system disc. You can try to repair or reinstall the operating system, but most likely the hard drive has failed and will need replacing.
