Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

2 Answers

Keeps rebooting I just got this presario v2000. I have no history on it. When i turn it on it tries to boot giving the options of safe mode and so on. I've tried all the different options. It tries to start but just reboots after it shows the windows logo. After a bit of trying it just shuts down and feels hot where the fan is. My guess is the fan does not work. DUH!! that can be fixed. but what about the rebooting?

Sounds like the operating system could be corrupted, maybe try a restore to factory settings since its new? Try to hit "F11" on startup and do a factory restore to fix the possibly corrupt OS.

Compaq v2000 presario continually reboots and shows blue screen then reboots over and over


Your windows file may be corrupt. You will probably have to re download your installation disk that was given to you when you purchased your computer. This should solve the problem. Make sure you get someone to back up your data. before re installing the operating system. Hope this helps.

It turns into blue screen with white texts and from below, its says terminating (memory-something) and has a countdown... and reboots itself. computer: Compaq Presario PC SR5050NX


Its probably saying memory dump and the countdown. This is mostly encountered after some kinda change on the pc. It can be new hardware, software or just plain windows update. Lots of times it ends up being a corrupt driver. Try to boot in to safe mode and see doe sit still do same thing. if not than you know it is software related and you can do system restore. To boot in to safe mode on reboot keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. Once in safe mode if it works go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and choose system recovery. choose like a week back and click next and this will do a restore to when pc was working, fine. If you cant boot into safe mode it is possible it has issues with hardware and this should be checked out by a pc repair shop. Another option you can try if same mode dont work try to do same thing on boot keep on tapping key F8 and instead choosing safe mode try choosing Last Known Good Configuration. this is similar to restore. Hope this helps.

Windows xp starts twice and on second boot wont load user settings


Does it just sit at a blue screen? Is there only one user profile on this system? It could be a bad user profile in which case you can try logging on as administrator (if that isn't the user account issue). Try taking it into safe mode or last good known boot and see how far you get. If you recently installed something software or hardware then it could be related to the installation.

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.

How to reboot a compaq v2000


there may be a backed up folder on another partition of your hardrive with the restore files, but you should have an anti virus programme installed, if not download this free AVG 8 and then restart your pc in safe mode (press F8 while booting and select safe mode).

click on the administrator account and find the AVG8 download, install it, the go to my computer, right click,properties, system restore tab and untick 'turn on system restore'.

run the AVG 8 programme and scan your system.

Once virusus are found, reboot system and then run as normal and then turn back on system restore

Not able to pull task manager


It sounds like you may have an exploit on your system! If you restart in safe mode and log on as "administrator" (not your user, the machine administrator). To boot into safe mode, immidately after your system displays the startup messages, press F8 TWICE, scroll up to safe mode, and press enter TWICE. You should be able to go to the run command and enter "taskmgr" (without the quotes) or ctl-alt-del. You might need to do a little footwork to see if you have been exploited or (hopefully) just messed up your access accidentally.

Try to boot up pressing the F8 button, when the menu appears select the option "Windows in safe mode" if u can boot to windows. View our software installed.
If it is not software try, boot whit the windows installation disk enter to the setup and select the option repair, u will go to a DOS prompted window (all black whit white letters) must appear "c:\"
used the command "chkdsk /f /r" let it run he will try to find any problem in the disk.
