If the hard drive is faulty then to get the laptop functing again then you need to purchase a new hard drive and install Windows in the new hard drive, the device drivers and your programs.
You need to download the drivers from the Compaq WEB support/download page from another computer. Make sure you select your model laptop and the XP or Vista Windows version of the drivers you require and install them. Use this link to download the drivers: -

As I have mentioned in the past these problems are usually connected with improper partioning with the hard drive. My suggestion would be to use FDISK to check for partitions that are marked as not being used.
Be Careful when using Fdisk because it can and will sometimes backfire.
(you can find Fdisk on just about any startup disk
Just make sure that there are startup files on the disk

Compaq presario cq61 will not stay turned on.


For this kind of issue, please follow up the following steps to check:

1.confirm the battery and ac adapter connect the laptop normally.Maybe the bad connect lead to this problem. If there are no lights when you turn on laptop, one of possible reason is that your adapter is malfunction.

2.the second possible cause is laptop dc jack failure. If the dc jack is broken or loose, you are required to replace it or repair it.

3.Another possible reason is that there is something wrong with laptop motherboard. For this situation, it includs two kinds of possibility,a failure in an electronic circuit and BGA malfunction.

For more detailed reasons and solutions, please have a look at the following article:

If you verify your laptop adapter is dead and you plan to order a new one, I recommend one for you on the basis of your laptop model:

Presario F730US wireless not working


We have the same problem on a Compaq F730 US laptop. There is a massive recall going on right now with HP/Compaq motherboards. It mostly affects the wireless adapter. Do some internet research and look on HP's website and see if your model # is included in the recall. If it's not, it should be! Let HP know about it. There is also a BATTERY RECALL on the exact same model. Now we know why Compaq went out of business!

Presario v2000 will not work


There is a specific known issue with the Bios on certain model laptops that once the Bios has failed the laptop will not boot. It happened with my wifes 6000. I searched for a week and then finally found a very obscure article about it. I called HP/Compaq and gave them the symptoms and what I had already done (reseated the memory, hard drive and verified that the AC Adapter was good) Finally they acknowledged that her SN laptop had the known issue and sent me a box to ship it to them for motherboard replacement. The laptop was 4 months out of warranty so if I hadn't found this it would have been junk. Good Luck.
