Question about Compaq Presario X1000 Notebook

2 Answers

My Compaq x1000 notebook won't boot. It powers on but the disk light just blinks (and makes a clicking sound). I replaced the disk and the symptoms are the same. It won't boot into set up and it isn't booting off the cdrom. Any suggestions graciously appreciated.

Does the screen come alive or is it just dark. Mine has a defective video card, I think, and will only boot correctly when I push hard on the case above the f5/f6 keys. Then the screen comes alive but only while I maintain pressure. I bought a used card and am replacing it to see if there is still a problem. DC orgwood@iaxs.net

Battery is needed to complete circuit. Too bad you didn't have the old one.

I am trying to install a new WD Scorpio Blue hard drive on my Compaq presario x1000. The computer is not recognizing the drive (it says none installed). When I insert the installation CD it gives me a disk...


I would first make sure that your laptop can actually handle the HDD's capacity, and the interface, then go into yout BIOS and make sure any switches that need to be hit are in fact set properly. First make sure that it is actually powering up. Regardless of what's going on, if the jumper settings are correct your motherboard should notify you that there is a proper conection in the bois display. If you don't see this, make sure that it is actually powering up, and that the jumper pin(s) are positioned correctly.

No boot


Sounds like the motherboard is getting power to the lights but not to the rest of the computer. try to drain all the power out of the laptop by unplugging it and holding the power button for 30 seconds. Then plug it back in and try again if this does not fix it your motherboard is probably shot and would need replaced.

yes sounds like the board has gone out on you.

You will have to watch ebay for a board. I just searched and nothing except batterys and keyboards are available.
