Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq Presario V2000 boots up, but

Will not go past screen that says F1 to resume, F10 to continue, or something like that. Beeps twice when turning on. Beeped only once before I formatted hard drive. Power cord is not in good shape. I was wanting to fix this for a friend, but have tested hard drive, with another pc, etc, and installed windows that way. Still cannot get this to go further than that screen, and it will not recognize the keyboard typing. Can it be the motherboard? I did not think it beeped at all if the motherboard was gone. I appreciate any help. Have been working on this for days now and really was hoping it could be fixed for Christmas.:) thanks

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.
