Question about Compaq Presario R3000 Notebook

1 Answer

Boot screen of death??

I have a Compaq Presario 3000 laptop with P4 and XP OS.

When I power up I get the compaq name along with the F10 option, then it goes to "NO BOOTABABLE CD IN ATAPI CD-ROM" then from there it goes to the boot device screen. It doesn't recognize my xp disc either.

Any ideas?

IT seems to me that If you were to push the delete key or F2 and go into the bios and go into bootup devices and make sure that the first device is cdrom or your Hdd if thats all ok, try to take out your cd rom drive and replace it make sure it is pushed snuggley into place and retry it see if that works,You may also try the F8 keys and start from last known good configuration or safe mode, try that and let me know if it helps you out, thanks Happy Holiday bear001

Laptop wont turn on properly


A vital component that windows requires to run is corrupted. To fix it, you need the OS disc

In Windows Vista, there is usually a second partion on the harddrive that you can load by pressing F8 (or F10 depending on your system) and selecting the repair your computer option (depending on your manufacturer, you might need to input a password, after that choose the repair your computer option or solve startup problems

In Windows XP load the disc and open the recovery manager.

Compaq presario v3000 laptop..doesnt recongize the hard drive


I beleive that you are trying to install retail versions of XP which will not be able to detect the Hard Drive in the Notebook as it is a SATA drive and Windows XP will not be having the drivers for SATA Hard Drives by default.
In this situation, I recommend you to check and disable the SATA Native support  option available in the BIOS.
Start the Notebook and start tapping the F10 key which will take you to to the BIOS Setup window.
In this, go to the System Configuration tab using the Arrow keys and select the option as Disabled next to SATA Native Support.
Press the F10 key again to save the settings done and exit BIOS.
Now, you should be able to use the Windows XP disk and install Windows XP Operating System in your Notebook without any issues.
By disabling the SATA Native Feature, the Hard Drive of the Notebook will be detected as a IDE Drive because of which we will be able to install XP without any issues.

Donot Re-Enable this feature in the BIOS again as the Operating System may not boot. Let the option next to SATA Native Support be Disabled.
Hope this helps...
