Question about Hard Drives

Not starting up Compaq V2000

My COmpaq V2000 recently froze on me, I restarted it manually because it was the only possible way and when I tried to turn it back on I got two beeps and a screen saying press F1 to resume or F10(or 12) to setup. I tried to press these buttons (and others) but nothing happened. A few people told me it may be the hard drive?? any solutions??

My compaq e500 doesn't start. how can i reformat my compaq?


you cant format a computer if it does not start !

Restart your computer repeatedly tapping the f8 key to enter safe mode while the screen is black once in safe mode where the only things working will be your keyboard and mouse allowing you to attempt to repair your computer

If done properly the user should get to a screen similar to the below screen.

Select the option for Safe mode command prompt only

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu


Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.


select safe mode with command prompt then type in chkdsk/f/r which will scan for and and attempt repair of bad files and bad sectors on hard drive


you should have no input while chkdsk utility is in progress any input might further damage your computer or


Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue and then replace the file.


Type the following command and then press ENTER: sfc /scannow The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.


hope this helps

Compaq armada stuck on help menu


try selecting safe mode, remove the software/or updates you recently installed
or choose last known good configuration.
If that does not work, you can choose F10 and restore your OS

Compaq v2000 hard drive, bsod, willnot boot system


That is the end of the line for that drive, you need a new drive. You MAY be able to recover the data on the drive you have by installing it in another computer (or this one once you get a new drive and reinstall your operating system) as a second drive and copying what you need or just ghosting the whole drive. Sometimes if you put the drive in the freezer it will help.

If you have important data on this drive you may want to have a pro try to recover it. When drives fail they can destroy internal parts, so use it as little as possible during the recovery process.

Upgrading Hard drive of Compaq Presario v3018TU


I am afraid you cannot use 250gb hard drive on the notebook. Check the following service manual for hard drive specifications and supported hard drives with part numbers:
