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.

    Does the new Hard drive have an operating system loaded onto it. Vista, XP...? When you boot the PC you can open the cd tray and put in a windows cd rom (operating system) in then then reboot it. When it comes back on it should ask you to boot from cd rom. Boot to cd and reinstall the operating system. Good luck.

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


Hi....
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............

Computer turns on, but won't work afterwords


Hi,

Nev, the two loud beeping sound of the system when turning it on could be a problem with the memory or the system board.

Try disconnecting the power and take out the battery, then press and hold the power button for 5 seconds then look for the memory comparment and reseat it.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
