Re: Compaq Presario M2000

Unless your machine took a bad fall down some stairs, I am guessing you have a problem with hardware. Unplug the machine and remove the battery. Unplug any external devices like cards, USB devices and printers, etc., and then reboot. Is the hard drive running? Try F10 into setup, and then select LOAD SAFE DEFAULTS AND REBOOT, or something similar. If this does not get it going, check to see if the harddrive or memory has become unseated in their bays somehow. Turn the laptop over, remove the screws covering the little doors, lovingly and gently unscrew the harddrive retaining screw and remove it, and then put it back in and secure the screws. Check to make sure the memory modules are seated correctly, and reseat them if necessary. Then try rebooting. If you get the same problem, go into the BIOS again and check to make sure you are booting to the HDD as first, and then start turning off devices in the BIOS and rebooting in cycles until it boots. Also, try booting to CD (for example, OS installation disk) and if that works, you likely have a boot problem or hardware problem on the hard drive.

Good luck....

When i switch on my compaq presario V2000 laptop it beeps three times and then freezes giving me the option to press f1 or f10 but when i press f1 or f10 it still doesn't work and is still frozen

Actually beep sound indicates hardware error or BIOS error.
Don't press F10 while starting.
Let your laptop to start wait for 10min....
If it will not starts..........
Press F1(BIOS Settings for some pc F2 is Bois Setting)

If it will load BIOS.......... then your BIOS is OK

Then you need to change hard disk...

If not you need to change BIOS hardware(IF you i will tell you the way restore BIOS but it's very difficult task.It needs a trained person.)

Thank you have a nice day............

My Compaq V2000 beeps twice & freezes

It sounds like the RAM is either not compatable or is bad. Put the old RAM back in and try again. Also the V2000 and HP DV2000 is in recall for mother board problems.

No responce from keyboard

The keyboard is not dead. I have contacted HP about this issue (DO NOT CALL THEM AND HAVE THEM FIX IT! THEY GAVE ME AN ESTIMATE OF $300!) they SAY that it is a hardware issue...

However have found more than one website saying that it is most likely the CMOS battery that has gone dead.

Press (F1) to resume, (F10) to setup

I need a bit more info to try to give you an accurate solution

Does the screen change after you press "F1" ?

Do you have access to an external keyboard, if so try plugging that in while the computer is off and then using that to press "F1"

Blank screen on start up

It means that your system cannot detect Windows on your hard drive. Check the connections inside if you can. If everything is connected properly, then your hard drive is probably is at fault. You can do a disk check in dos but may not be accurate.
