Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

Computer will not start

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 that is less than two years old. I had some problems with the computer shuting down as I was using it, but it wasn't happening a lot. A couple of weeks ago I tried to turn the computer on and nothing. No power, no screen. Any suggestions? Help! I am not a computer person, but I have become used to having my laptop available at all times. Thanks!

Re: Computer will not start

HP do not accept this as a "known" issue with V2000 series, but are replacing motherboards out of warranty when the US Better Business Bureau gets involved.

Re: Computer will not start

Disconnect battery and unplug from power, test for voltage on power cord and re-insert, hold down power switch. If nothing try battery without power cord. Still nothing (no lights, no sounds) then it may need system board replacing.

Laptop keeps shuting down at random.

This could be caused by MANY different things. If it is a random thing, where do you have your laptop when it happens? If it isn't on a flat smooth surface, it's probably a heat related issue. Laptops need a lot of air circulaton, through the bottom.

More then likely if the computer itself cant start up with just the battery alone, or run for any amount of time without the power cord plugged into it then its probably the battery.

Anyone has a complete compac HP OS

**NOTE: Even though your computer may SAY that it is a Presario V2000, it may have an entirely different product number for downloading drivers specific to your particular configuration.**

1) Look at the serial code on the back/bottom of your computer: there is a number starting with p/n (ex. p/nEX664UA#APL) This code identifies your computer beyond the V2000 label.

2) Go to the compaq/hp website:

3) select "Download Drivers and software(and firmware)"

4) THEN, enter your P/N Instead of "Presario V2000" into the product name/number box, and hit enter.

Select your operating system, and you will be redirected to a page listing all the necessary drivers for your model.

5) Scroll down the screen, and you will see a section where you can order free copies of the recovery cd. just enter your serial number from the bottom of your laptop.
