Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
If we turn on the laptop it starts and runs a little bit and gets off even the display wont come, but sometimes it comes . the fan rotates for sometimes and gets off
Ensure that all cables are correctly connected and pushed in firmly. On some systems the mouse and keyboard connectors are very similar and next to each other. Ensure that the mouse cable is plugged into the mouse socket and the keyboard cable into the keyboard socket
Check that system unit are plugged in. Check the power socket by plugging in a lamp and ensuring it works
Check that there is power to the system unit. If you are unsure or do not know how to check this, either change the fuse or borrow a suitable lead from a colleague
Switch the PC on, watch to see if the keyboard lights flash and the fan is blowing air out of the back. The hard disk light should also flash on and off during the start up process.
If the system beeps several times when powered on carefully count the number of beeps - some systems use this to indicate the sort of error that has occurred, but remember that some computers produce one or two beeps as part of the start up process.
I you hear an unending series of long beeps, which usually means your mobo is not seeing the memory sticks properly. A short series of one long and three short beeps usually indicates a problem w/ the graphics card. Taking mem sticks and/or gfx card off and resetting them, with some contact cleaning if needed, generally solves the problem, provided, of course, none of these parts are damaged.
Don't forget to unplug the power cord before removing/inserting the memory and video card, otherwise you might end up killing them.
Try this :
This is a very delicate problem because it offers many posibilities.
1. Usualy this happens when windows xp becomes corrupted and it will keep on rebooting itself and on rare ocasions it will boot but then crash for good.
Solution: This requiers a simple clean install of windows, after which everything will work normally.
Note: before trying the other steps we recommend to start with this one because is the most often of them all.
2. Problems with your memory cards. One or more memory cards could fail and your system will become unstable until those modules are replaced.
Solution: replace your memory module(s) with 1 from another computer which you know it works(from a friend,a neighbor)
3. Problems with your videocard which may have a failed circuit, thus resulting in a system instability.
Solution: replace your videocard with one from a friend just to see if it works with it.
4. In this category you will find the other posibilities that are very hard to detect and requier a PC expert to locate and repair them.
Here are: failed circuits, failed hard disks, failed motherboards, failed cpu's etc.
Solution: in this case we recommend you to go to a Pc service because trying to repair it yourself could hurt you or damage the computer.

It is likely that the ball bearings in the fan have started to go, and it is no longer properly cooling the system. In most cases it is necessary to replace the fan or entire HSF unit - which can be quite expensive.
I have been able to keep such a laptop alive for a while by using a laptop stand that has fans built into it, which usually provide enough cooling by pulling hot air away from the system.
