Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
Things to try:
1. shut down the computer. Disconnect the power to the laptop and pop out the battery, with the battery removed and the laptop unplugged from power, press the power button on the laptop once and let it sit for 10 mins then pop the battery back in and plug in the power cord and turn it back on.
2. make sure the computers bios is set to boot from the hard disk drive first. (press the key that it requests for setup usually its the F1 F2 or delete keys) and set the hard disk to boot first then reboot the computer
3. make sure no cd or dvd's are in the computer. and that you don't have any usb devices plugged into the computer. reboot computer
4. if all these methods fail then the next step is to take the laptop in to a computer shop to have its data recovered if possible, as your hard disk is non bootable or bad.
NOTES: My best guess is the hard disk is non bootable or bad. Which is bad.You would need a new hard disk installed and the operating system restore disks from the manufacturer for your laptop reloaded.
and your data is most likely gone.
expert notes below:
if you are a total do it yourselfer see about booting the computer with a knoppix boot cd and an usb external hard disk or flash drive attached to the computer and with luck you can copy some of the data. Best of luck.
