Question about Compaq Presario V4000 Notebook

Compaq Presario C302NR will not boot up.

Hey guys my Presario C302NR was running fine for the last 2 year with no problems. I shut it down for the night and when I turned it back on the next day it went to the windows xp logo screen then flashes a blue screen with a message momentarily then immediately goes to the load windows normally or safe mode menu. I clicked every option and it start the booting process over again and comes right back to the same screen. So I went into the bios and did a hard drive diag self test and it passes every time. So I took my Xp disk and tried to reinstall it running from the disk, I get a message saying no hard drive found. I buy a new drive put it in and I get the same result as the other and that drive also pass the self test. What give I am clueless now could that be another bad drive or am I looking at the wrong hardware.

Compaq 1420NX - When I turn power on it runs for 2 seconds and shuts off. All 3 fans are operating. I haven't used it in over a year, and it was working fine when last used


b> Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

You probably put more than a pin-head size drop of heat grease compound on CPU, thus "bleeding" over on the CPU, effectively overheating processor (very common). In any event, your problem is overheating -that's *the* place to look for now.

Shut down the computer. Turn it on and during the boot process hit on F8 to get into Advanced boot option (if it skips try again after restart the computer), You will see the options. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration" and enter. It will probably will resolve the issue. If issue persist please post for further assistance.

Good Luck

Trouble starting compaq presario F551AU


Hey I apoligise for the late reply,

Ok, first off when you turn off the computer without shutting down, windws does not get enough time to wirte necessary data to the disc, this does not always cause aproblem because sometimes there are unpredictable events such as power failure..

You might need to format your hardrive to fix this problem
To do this boot with the windows cd, it will say press any key to boot from disc. (YOU MIGHT NEED TO SET YOUR BOOT DEVICE IN THE BIOS(SETUP))

anyway fisrt off try a fresh install, leaving your current file system intact. Id that works then you will still have all your data on your disc, If not then you need to do a complete format.. Good Luck
