On the BIOS set up, it will show HDD (none) but if i return the old one the system will detect it.


This model laptop was installed with a 60Gb hard disk. When you installed a much larger hard disk the BIOS could not detect this hard drive.
Check the HP/Compac WEB site foe a possible BIOS upgrade that can support a large hard drive. Otherwise try a hard drive 120Gb or smaller.

The touchpad for myCompaq Presario CQ60 is not working, I have tried forced shutdown and re-boot, the mouse even works in the system recovery menu, but when I re-start, it does not work again, please...


Hook an external mouse to the laptop, if yes! do a system restore bringing the computer back to an earlier time before this happened, if the external mouse gives the same problem, do a full system recovery of the operational system if possible for a complete fresh install.

My hard drive burnt out. The hard drive test says failed and the operating system won't boot. I placed a leftover hard drive from my Playstation 3 into the laptop and now it says no operating system found....


Try the recovery console from a windows xp recovery/install disk:
To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1.Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.
Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2.When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3.Select the operating system you want to repair (you may have only one option).
4.When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5.At the command prompt, type the appropriate commands to diagnose and repair your Windows XP installation. From here I would try "chkdsk /r" and "fixboot"
For a list of commands that are available in Recovery Console, type recovery console commands or help at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
For information about a specific command, type help commandname at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
6.To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
Once you've done this restart the computer and see if it boots up.

Hp pavillion dv4000 laptop freezes while loading windows and wont finish loading it.. what do i need to do?


I have looked all around and no one has tried the fix that I have just tried. If your laptop freezes until it's moved slightly or you have to apply pressure around the touchpad / memory area it is neither those parts that are causing the problem. The real problem lies beneath. The problem is the southbridge intel chip. I fix Xbox 360's so I know a lot about cold solder points and it seams that HP placed the chip in an unstable area. The southbridge chip over time gets cooked under the plastic and sooner or later has cold solder joints which means it can constantly connect and disconnect its cold solder point. Every time it disconnects your laptop freezes because the flow has just stoped. The answer is to do two things. First you must find some sort of heat obsorbing pad, I had a thermal pad around which I used to fix an Xbox so I used that. I opened the laptop to the point that I could see the chip (make sure you know what your doing when opening your laptop!!!!). Then I just placed the thermal pad on top of it and closed the laptop. The other thing you should do which I can't since I do not have it, but you should use a heat gun in order to reflow the solder between the southbridge chip and the motherboard. The pads may not work entirely because they can sometimes only apply pressure and wont fully recconect the cold solder points below the chip. My laptop is working fine right now with only a couple freeze ups since it is in my lap and I have just applied the fix not to long ago but it would never work in this position before and leads me to the conclusion that it must be the chip. I did not use the heatgun method but if and when I do buy a heatgun I will definitely do so to prevent the very few freezes I still recieve. I hope this helps.

Startup repair won't run


"Unmountable boot volume" this problem is your hard disk partition which is failure to recognize & identify the operating system running on the hard disk. Reformat your hard disk and put another operating system to run again your computer.

Compaq Presario V2000 boot problem


Bios is not on an hard drive, is on a memory chipinside computer. Your main problem is not with Bios, but with system.
On many Compaq you can start the recovery tool by pressing f10 or f11 on startup. The system recovery tool it is located on hard disk, if it does not start it had been deleted or is damaged.

In your case Windows is corrupted, that is the reason why it is freezing , and then giving the blue error screen.

You need to get a Windows setup disk and reintall Windows. If you install windows from a generic setup disk you will need to install drivers after installing.
Drivers can be downloaded from HP website.

Another solution is calling the phone number listed on the user manual to contact HP. you can buy from them an original recovery CD, in this case you won't need drivers.

Otherwise you can ask a quote to a local repair shop for a system reinstall, I think it is about $80.
