Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Our v2000 takes several attempts to turn on - once on works fine

The laptop starts to boot when I press the power button but it doesn't "catch". After several attempts it will finally start up and from that point it works just fine. Is this a hard drive problem?

This could be a hard drive problem. Try taking the hard drive out and putting it in another laptop. Also try taking the battery out and then connect it only with the power cord connected. If you have the same problem it is most likely a hard drive problem. I would recommend that you back up the data and get a new hard drive.

Will not power on


MPC has since dissolved, leaving thousands of customers without dedicated support when their Gateway laptop won't start.

Remove the AC adapter from the laptop and attempt to boot the laptop from battery alone. Attempt to turn on the laptop.
Replace the AC adapter and remove the battery from your laptop.
Ensure the adapter is plugged in. Attempt to turn on the laptop.


Disconnect the AC adapter and leave the battery removed from the laptop.
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds.
Nothing should happen on the screen.
Reconnect the AC adapter to the laptop.
Attempt to power on the laptop.
If the laptop boots, replace the battery once the operating system loads.

Try the process again with a new AC adapter and battery if possible.
Contact Gateway support if you aren't a former MPC customer.
Alternatively, take the laptop to a computer specialist if it still won't start.

Computer will not start up.


One thing that might be worth trying that I have seen work on several occasions is to disconnect the power, then remove the laptop battery, reconnect the power lead and try operating the laptop with no battery.
If this does work, then the laptop battery has probably failed and made a short-circuit internally which would be why it will no longer charge and why the laptop will not power on as a safety precaution.

Dell inspiron m5030 wont boot up, ac adapter has green light then once it is pluged in light goes out.


Hi,

Try a hard reset. Sometimes it works and is always the first step to take.
Remove the battery and the ac adapter plug from the laptop.
Press and hold the power button for forty seconds.
Install the battery and ac adapter .Now press the power button to attempt a boot into the OS.

If that doesn't work then remove the hard disk to see if it gets past the splash screen and the BIOS whines that it can't find a boo-table OS. That would indicate a hard disk failure.
Also try to remove the memory module(s) from the DIMM slots and then reinstalling them. That reset the modules and cleans some oxidation off the module pins (if there is any)

Hope this helps.

Let me know if you need more information
Thanks

Compaq Presario V2000 will not boot.


Remove the battery and just leave it off the computer, then plug in the power cord and try it. If it works with no battery...the battery is completely dead and you need to replace.

Toshiba M45-S165 startup issues


This is normally a motherboard issue. I had one with the same symptoms and I had to replace the motherboard. Worked great after the board was replaced. I had to replace the board because unlike your issue mine stopped working all together. It did take a while before it quit though. Just a note: I have had to replace several of these motherboards for customers as well. If your LCD is broken, you may be better off to save your data and put it in a new laptop that would include a warranty unless your super fond of the machine or you have access to inexpensive parts.
Hope this helps...

My laptop comes on but the screen stays blank??


Unplug the power, remove the battery and then hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds. Then reattach the power and attempt a boot. It worked for me! Just shutdown, put the battery back in you're good to go. Worked for me so definitely worth a try.
Good luck
