The coin cell battery on the motherboard will stop it from booting if it's dead because the time and date is missing.

Acer aspire 1500 no screen harddrive working software putting out correct start-up sounds


Try hooking the laptop up to an external monitor, use a vga cable. If the main display has died, the laptop may default a secondary if given the chance. If the laptop sounds like it boots but you can't see a screen on the external display try holding down the Fn key and at the same time tap the F5 key, this will toggle the display from internal to external. If a screen still cannot be seen then you may have lost the video processor on the motherboard.

HP DV4 displays only a blue screen running vista


Shutdown the computer,disconnect external peripherials.
Turn on the computer and hit F8 key as soon as you restart the computer
You will get the windows advance options menu.
Select the Safe mode option and hit enter.
If the computer boots in safe mode, do a system restore to previous date.
If computer restore then issue is resolved.
If still unable to boot in safe mode.
Ran a harddrive diagnostic.If harddrive test passes. If harddrive test fails replace harddrive.
Boot the system using the windows xp or vista operating system disk. Try to repair the OS then reboot the system and check.
If still unable to boot possible issue with corrupt operating system.
Reinstall Operating system. / Recover System . Good Luck.

Compaq Presario V2000 will not boot


The clicking noise from the hard disk indicats that you have a intermitten faulty disk and therefore the computer sometimes boots up. If you manage to get the computer to boot, I would advise you to backup or copy your data. If you can't get the computer to boot up then the hard drive is dead.
You do not need to buy a new computer, just buy a new hard drive, replace the faulty drive and install your Windows operating system, all your device drivers (eg. audio, video, LAN etc.) and all your programs. You or a friend have a few hours of work.

Acer ASpire laptop


sounds like its trying to load windows but the harddrive is failing to respond, most of the time if it loads everything up to the windows itself its all done before initalizing the harddrive itself.. try putting the harddrive into another computer or usb external to check if its dead.. you might just need a new one =T not 100% sure though but its worth trying.

tried to remove the harddrive and boot and press f2.
if this is working, it's look like your harddrive is dead.

but if this isnot working (still same problem), remove the dvd, wireless card (from the back of the unit) and try again.
if still not working, Motherboard is bad.

MY LAPTOP DOESNT DETECT HARDDRIVE!!!


I would say, without looking into it, your hard drive is dead. Yes, you can replace the internal harddrive for another one and just install Windows 2000.
