My laptop Presario R3000 won't turn on


let it sit for awhile. then try to power it on. if it powers up and then suts off again, the processor fan is probably bad and needs to be replaced.

Also, take the battery out and tryy to power it up.

Compaq presario r3000 amd athlon laptop cuts off after 10 minutes


from my experience this might be one of two things...

if it's shutting down while you're installing windows, i'm thinking you might have a problem with the motherboard channel for your CD drive. i saw this happen to a computer at work - we couldn't install windows because it cut off halfway through and blue screened on us.

it might also be a case of a bad hard drive, if you have any testing utility like drive fitness test i'd give that a shot. it sounds like a new one, but they're bad out of the box sometimes.

hope this helps

Presario r3000 too slow


I have a R3000 and after many years of usage many things happen and add to your hard drive. It can be a number of things from not enough hard drive space for your cache file to bad installed drivers.
I would suggest a full format and install using the backup disk that Compaq sent with the system. You should have the WinXP code on the bottom of the computer. This way you get a 100% clean system. You will have to reinstall any additional software such as MS Office or your virus scanner.
Hope this helps

Compaq Presario R3000 compatible bios?


I Think the latest bios update for R3000 is F.35. Sounds like you need to reinstall OS or buy a new HD

Won't boot


The error means that the computer is not seeing the hard drive.Hit F10 to get into BIOS and check that your hard drive is showing . If it is hit ESC and tell it to save settings. Then restart the PC.

If your hard drive does not show in BIOS, there is something wrong with it. It may be co-incidental that canceling the scan caused your hard drive to fail.

You can try to do an XP repair. Boot your XP cd:
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstall the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
