Question about Hard Drives
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??
Hey if u figure out a way let me knoe too i am having the same problem. thanks

Tips for a great answer:
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 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)
Start Windows Normally
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
