Question about HP Compaq Presario V3000T Notebook

1 Answer

My Compaq Presario V3000 will not boot up. It tries, gives me a message saying Windows was unable to start correctly, then tries to restart, then goes back to the error message. I tried to do a "system restore". It told me the system restore was successful, but then it wouldn't even try to boot up. It just turned itself off midway through the boot up. I took it to a repair shop and they said the only problem it had was with the wireless function in the motherboard. I didn't even know it had a wireless function! And why would that cause the loop my computer was experiencing! Oh and now the hard disc is "empty" they say. They want 499 to put in a new motherboard or they can just turn off the wireless function. How the heck would that help! And if I pay them 499 to put in a new motherboard, what if it still doesn't work? Plus they sell refurbished laptops, which they are now really pushing me to buy and leave my old laptop with them. Help!! Am I being screwed?

The model "V3000" is a generic term for a bunch of different models. To make sure you get the right drivers for your specific model, start at HP's site here and pick yours from the list. Then pick the Windows XP operating system and you'll find the drivers they have for download.

If you have a Windows XP Pro installation disk, put it in the optical drive, restart your computer, on startup, go to BIOS settings (usually press [Delete] and set the optical drive as first boot device. Save changes and exit. When the computer starts it usually says to press any key to start from CD. Press any key and the windows installation will start. Make sure you format C: and you will downgrade to Windows XP Pro. If you want to upgrade to Vista again, you will need to know the keyboard sequence to start Vista from Its partition or have Vista install disk.

Hp compaq presario v3000 is not loding the OS, show an error


  • as you boot the computer, start tapping the F8 keys
  • From the boot menu, select Safe Mode
If this seems to work, you can try restoring the computer to an earlier point from Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
If Safe Mode also fails to load, you would have to check your disk for errors or you may have to install XP all over again.
Please get back, if you need any further help.
