Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
I'm trying to activate Windows after reinstallation. I couldn't get an internet connection and so I tried to do the over the phone activation. The only problem is that when I reach that point, my laptop touchpad stops working, as does my keyboard. So, I can't type in the numbers I'm given. All of the troubleshooting tips say that I most likely need a driver -- which I have the disc for, but I can't get it to run without activating windows first. At least not that I can figure. HELP! Thanks
Activation will not interfere with anything to do with driver installation, especially as you have 30 days to activate, it's probably something to do with the driver as windows may have installed a generic driver within XP and is not compatable. If you cant get the disc to run, uninstal the keyboard through device manger and then when it reinstalls at the reboot manulally install the driver if you can pointing it to your cdrom disc. If you are able connect a usb mouse for the installation of the driver, but you should get an internet connection as it simply updates the product number, but its unuasual you need to reactivate if you only reinstalled as you have changed no hardware.
