Compaq Presario V2000 won't turn on

Is there anyway to access the hard drive on these laptops. Someone brought it to me with what I think is a bad motherboard. The fan does not turn but the power light stays on. The dvd drive will not eject but I've checked and there is not a disc in it. I have cables to hook up to IDE and SATA drives but this type drops into its slot and I can't hook up to it. The only copy of this persons wedding pics are on it or I wouldn't even mess with it.

    If I had an another laptop that I could harvest the socket that the hard drive drops into I could probably rig one up also. I'm afraid I've lost some of my steadiness in my hands too. Thanks for the reply.

Ah yes, another illustration of the value of backing up often.
You didn't mention the name of the drive maker but you might get some response to an email asking if they make an adaptor that would allow you to access it via a cable if installed in another system.
I have made dozens of adaptors to resolve this knid of bottleneck. Uuuh, that wasn't an offer to make one, I'm retired and age has stolen too much of my steadiness for soldering and eyesight to see what I am doing.

My HP Compaq Presario V2000 PC Notebook start and stay's on the windows xp splash screen. I have tried loading it in safe mode and last good config but none works.


Hi
Of course without seeing it I can't make an exact diagnosis. My first though is that you have a bad sector on the hard drive which keeps Windows from loading because the head can't recover data under the bad sector. Slave this hard drive to a good one and back up the data. Download a copy of hdtune.exe. You can confirm the status of the hard drive with this. If you find bad sectors - replace the drive

Backup your programs immediately to a thumb drive or external HD. The hard drive may be on the brink of failing. You can replace a hard drive, it's your information thats on it that you may not be able to if it totally crashes!

I have a Compaq presario V2000. Right now I have 60gig internal hard drive. Is there a max internal hardrive I should purchase? I can buy up to 250 gigs? How much would you recommend I purhcase?


Usually, the more storage the better. You can go up to 260 gig total with a primary 100 gig drive and a secondary 160 gig drive. Note that with the extra drive, the unit will use more power so think about that first.
