Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 that was having problems with the hard drive (freezing up, shutting down, running slow, and blue screen errors). It wouldn't let me do a system restore and it wouldn't let me run in safe mode. I tried to repair the OS, but the process kept stopping and shutting down. I tried to REINSTALL the OS, and it would get to 45% and would shut down. Is my hard drive fried? If so, how can I replace it with a new one?

Dear antindom1,

This symptom usually occurs when the processor overheating in other words the processor fan is off or not working properly.
So for first aid, you try to open your notebook and look for the fan then clean up, and make sure if it was still working well or not? (turn on while you open the notebook) ,



Let me know the result

regards,
dm

    If it's Vista, turn on your laptop. Keep tapping F8 until you land in a Recovery Mode. Now choose Scan disk to check if it has any problems.
    If you're planning to change your Hard Disk, follow the tutorial on replacing the HDD.

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.

Compaq Presario V2000 boot problem


Bios is not on an hard drive, is on a memory chipinside computer. Your main problem is not with Bios, but with system.
On many Compaq you can start the recovery tool by pressing f10 or f11 on startup. The system recovery tool it is located on hard disk, if it does not start it had been deleted or is damaged.

In your case Windows is corrupted, that is the reason why it is freezing , and then giving the blue error screen.

You need to get a Windows setup disk and reintall Windows. If you install windows from a generic setup disk you will need to install drivers after installing.
Drivers can be downloaded from HP website.

Another solution is calling the phone number listed on the user manual to contact HP. you can buy from them an original recovery CD, in this case you won't need drivers.

Otherwise you can ask a quote to a local repair shop for a system reinstall, I think it is about $80.

Laptop compaq v2000


your windows install is screwed up. i'd dig up your Windows XP CDand pop that in and do a repair install. if it still doesnt work then i'd enter the bios setup (hit F10 on compaq boot screen) and look in there for "Hard Drive Test" and run that. be aware it will take 70 mins on a 60GB hard drive, and longer for a bigger drive. if the hard drive passes the test then you may want to boot up the XP cd and do a fresh install, opting to format the drive. be aware that formatting WILL delete anything and everything on the laptop.

if the hard drive fails the test, then obviously you need to get a replacement drive and reinstall Windows on that. if the hard drive failed, any data on it is most defenetly toast.

Startup problem


This is generally an indication of a hard drive failure. You will most likely have to replace the hard drive.
