Presario V2000 Random Rebooting

I bought the notebook about 2 years ago. last year during a power surge my motherboard was fried.  I sent the notebook to Hp and they replaced the motherboard.  When i got it back the computer was fine but i contracted a virus that got into my system32, and know how that ended up.  so i reformatted and reinstalled the OS, and reinstalled the drivers.  After i reinstalled the drivers the notebook would not boot up.  when i power on the notebook the boot screen comes on and then it restarts the computer.  This cycle continues until i hold the power switch down or remove the battery.

You need to format and install windows from a known good disk, of course you'll also need to obtain the drivers for the laptop as well.
I assume when you reformatted the hard drive, you didn't save the recovery partition?
If that's the case, you'll need to go to HP support for thew drivers.
It sounds like software issues. Good luck

The media test failure and the clicking sound from the hard disk indicated that the hard disk has failed. To get the laptop goining again, you need to replace the hard disk and install Windows on the new hard disk.

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.

If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes

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.

Ethernet not working! Help!

im assuming its not dissabled, if not then go to control panel, network connections and right click on your network card and go to properties then driver and see if there is a code 9 meaning it's faulty or the device is working. if it is faulty then it's part of the motherboard anyway and you will have to buy a pcmcia network card and connect through that instead
