Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

I have an HP Compaq Presario V2000 and I've been locked out.

It says on my screen : this computer is in use and has been locked. Only PC #.../my name (guest) or an administrator can unlock this computer and it provides links for user name and password. I never locked it nor that I use a password. How do I unlock it? Thank you for your diligent reply.

You might get in using "Safe Mode" and going throught the Administrator account. If you have no password on that one (most people don't) then all you need to do is hit enter. If you have the same account listed on your Welcome page try it there first. If not Google password recovery. There are some free password recovery programs online that could help. Only other choice is to have your documents backed up by pulling the HDD then do a full recovery using the recovery partition or CD.

Hello,
It seems a driver related issue. I suggest that you install RadarSync into your computer. Scan your computer with it to know which drivers are outdated and you can use the same software to update them to fix the issue.

» Compaq Presario V2000 CTO Notebook PC

Click the correct link of your computer, in the next page select dyour operating system that is windows vista, if there is no vista there then the driver for vista is not released by hp,if i am right there are drivers for 2nd and 3rd but not the first.

After selecting the operating system click next and select the link to driver-audio and click download

My HP Compaq Presario V2000 says: this computer is in use and has been locked; only PC #.../Marie D (guest) or an administrator can unlock this computer. Links follow for user name and password. I don't...


Sorry, Marie, didn't quite get the whole problem. Try a reboot. If that doesn't work, try safe mode. You get to safe mode by rebooting, then when the Mfg splash screen comes up (ie HP/Compaq/Presario) hit F8 until you get the dos menu. The DOS menu is a black screen with about 8 options or so. Use your arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode. Again try to get the Administrator account open by choosing that account and then just hitting enter. If you get in, open the Control Panel, then the User Accounts. Then either change the logon procedure using options or remove the password from the user account you're having problems with. If you can't get this far, you probably have a virus and should submit your computer to a professional for backup and recovery of the hard drive.

Anyone has a complete compac HP OS


**NOTE: Even though your computer may SAY that it is a Presario V2000, it may have an entirely different product number for downloading drivers specific to your particular configuration.**

1) Look at the serial code on the back/bottom of your computer: there is a number starting with p/n (ex. p/nEX664UA#APL) This code identifies your computer beyond the V2000 label.

2) Go to the compaq/hp website: http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/welcome.html#Support

3) select "Download Drivers and software(and firmware)"

4) THEN, enter your P/N Instead of "Presario V2000" into the product name/number box, and hit enter.

Select your operating system, and you will be redirected to a page listing all the necessary drivers for your model.

5) Scroll down the screen, and you will see a section where you can order free copies of the recovery cd. just enter your serial number from the bottom of your laptop.
