If nothing is happening with a good battery or a good power adapter you have a serious issue. Could be bad mo bo, corrupt cmos, bad hard drive, bad peripheral, .
Remove drive and plug into another known working computer as slave and see if it works and perform diagnostics on it. If it checks out at least you have your files and data . But the rest of the unit ................................
The easiest way to fix unmountable boot volume is to stick the hard drive into another machine and then run a chkdsk on that hard drive eg. if the hard drive is e: then goto Run on the start menu, type CMD, click OK then type chkdsk e: /f /r Once this is done stick the hard drive back in your machine. I suggest you do a good virus and spyware scan or it could be from a power surge or improper shut down. Good Luck
The problem maybe a loose electrical connection with the RAM modules and hard disk. Re-seat the RAM modules and the hard disk.
If the problem persists then the hard disk maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer has trouble seeing it as an external hard drive and unable to open the folders and files then the hard disk is faulty.
Then the hard disk needs to be replaced in the Compaq and Windows XP needs to installed on the new hard drive and the device drivers and programs.
another suggestion is that you need to have the code re-entered for the hardtop. I just had mine repaired due to a busted hydrolic hose, and the mechanic had a hard time getting it to work properly and ended up having to re-enter the codes.
