My compaq presario v5000 is infected with viruses, and I am wondering how I can factory reset it without a restore cd.


Try running in safe mode on your computer . (keep pressing f8 until you load up the confguration boot screen.
Then choose start windows in safe mode.. when it starts hit control+alt+delete to get ur task manager up delete any suspicious processes (((((maybe ones you havent recognised running before you got the virus)))) this would stop your pc from restarting itself if this was the case ,, then go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/uk/ run a free online virus scan .. may take a while but i did all this before when my pc kept restarting..and it found worms and all sorts then deleted them.
I restarted windows normally and the virus was gone.

HP Compaq Presario V5000 LCD Problem


I have the same problem. I thought the problem was due to a loose cable so I opened the computer up only to find out the cables are all good. I still haven't found a solution

A few months ago was the peak of Windows Virus Season, so it's likely you picked up one or more. I have seen viruses this season that denied your browsers to access the interned though some of the computer's resources still had access.

Run a full virus scan in safe mode with your up to date Anti-Virus program. If you don't have Anti-Virus and a running Fire Wall, I suggest you do after you format and do a clean install of Windows.

Good luck.

restart the laptop and than try again. if it keeps on happening than you have a problem with the laptop

you may have a virus or not enough memory.
to see if you have enough memory do a disk defrag and than do a full system scan.

My compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart


Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.

I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.

From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.

COMPAQ V5000 FAILURE


Hi, Try re-seating your memories. They may be located at the bottom of your laptop covered by a lid or panel held by a screw or 2. Once the memories are exposed, move the retaining clips slightly away from the memories moving sideways. The memory will slightly pop out and you can proceed to remove them. Use a pencil eraser to rub/clean on the little gold contact strips. Re-insert and lock in place. In some models the memories are underneath the keyboard. If this does not solve your problem, your next best move perhaps is to seek professional qualified services to diagnose/repair you laptop. In some instances, the repair could include video card or even memory replacement. Hop[t this be of some idea/help. Post back how things went or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
