Hi, there is a common fault on this model, to do with a bga chip (ball grid array) just underneath the touchpad. try appling a small a mount of pressure with 2 fingers just above the touchpad on the plastic between the keyboard and touchpad while it is booting . if you get any further response from the laptop then this is your problem. i have this model and same problem occurred i took the unit apart and placed a rubber wedge ontop of the intel BGA chip. put it back together and with the pressure applied from screwing the case back together hey presto works fine. hope this helps.
by the way please dont attempt to open the laptop unless you are confident you can put it back together :-)

    This has worked fine for me for several months, however now at times my USB ports just stop working. I use an ext USB mouse. Sometimes after being on for awhile it will just stop working. The touch pad does still work. Any ideas?

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer
Also you might try
Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10 key,ie: Alt+F10, it will open the recovery console ,select full factory restore and follow on screen instruction. (Note:this will erase all datas on the computer)
hope this helps

When i switch on my compaq presario V2000 laptop it beeps three times and then freezes giving me the option to press f1 or f10 but when i press f1 or f10 it still doesn't work and is still frozen

Actually beep sound indicates hardware error or BIOS error.
Don't press F10 while starting.
Let your laptop to start wait for 10min....
If it will not starts..........
Press F1(BIOS Settings for some pc F2 is Bois Setting)

If it will load BIOS.......... then your BIOS is OK

Then you need to change hard disk...

If not you need to change BIOS hardware(IF you i will tell you the way restore BIOS but it's very difficult task.It needs a trained person.)

Thank you have a nice day............

When turning computer on boot start and freeze when screen show F2 F12 . Nothing else work no matter what key I press. It wont even turn off unless we disconnect power supply and remove the battery.

It may happen due to hardware failure, BIOS mismatch or due to static charge. Let us try the basic troubleshooting. Turn Off the Computer, remove all the devices attached to
the computer, the power cable and battrey, now holdon the power button for 15 secs (make sure adpater and battery are uplugged) it will drain out all the static charge. Now,
restart the computer and keep on tapping F2, you will enter to BIOS setup utility, press F9 (click "Yes", if you are prompted) and then press F10 (Click "Yes", if you are
prompted), it will restart the computer. If still it is not booting to normal mode, then we have to perform a full system recovery & it is a distructive process as you will
loose all the datas on the computer. To do so, Turn Off the computer, now as soon as you hit the power button, keep on holding "Alt" key & keep on tapping "F10" key, i.e
Alt+f10, it will open the recovery console, select full factory restore and follow onscreen instruction. NOTE: This will erase all the datas on the computer.

System wont boot

Disconnect all devices except keyboard and mouse and master cd or DVD. unplug then hit power button. Plug back in. Hit power and hopefully you get to BIOS. If you do make sure you save the BIOS before you leave to start OS. Keep me informed and I'll keep checking your listing to see if its working or not.

Wont restart my compuetr

if your computer has restore capabilites then you need to enter the bios and make sure that D2D recovery is enabled. Do this by pressing F2 on boot.

Then you need to press Alt and F10 not just F10 to enter the recovery console. But press it once the manufacturers screen appears such as tiny, gateway, Hp etc.....

If this does not work for you then make sure that CDrom is set as first priority in the bios boot options if you are attempting to Repair windows with the disk.

I hope this helps
