Compaq Presario V2000 fails to boot up

My wife was using her computer and set it down to leave the house. When we came home I popped it open and it gave three loud beeps. The monitor nevers comes on but you can here the drive trying to spin up, although from the sounds of it it seems to be trying to boot up several times. Nothing at all becomes displayed on the screen, the mouse light never comes on and when I connect it to external video I get nothing. The bios never shows up nor does anything on the windows screen, it just stays black, the system isn't even trying to light it.

Re: Compaq Presario V2000 fails to boot up

3 beeps is the Beep code for "Base 64KB RAM Failure". Lets hope that you are lucky and the problem is your memory. If you have two memory sticks in the computer, then try to take one of them out. Try different combinations such as swapping between the memory slots that are available. If you still getting the same error code, then your motherboard is shot.

That little app is a major factor in the security of your system. You should boot from the XP CD and attempt to repair your current XP installation to rremedy the problem. It can lead to problems connecting to other computers on occasion, but more frequently it can cause problems accessing files on your hard disk.

Compaq Presario v2000 Notebook problem

Hi, Take out the battery and plug in only the power adapter and see if it comes on. If it does then leave out the battery for about 15 minutes and then put it back in. Good luck!
