Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

1 Answer

Hard drive problems.

My Daughters Comaq Note Book (4/5 years old) wouldn't start up and she took it to a friend who knows quite a lot about pc's and told her the hard drive is corrupt and everything will be lost if he tried to transfer it to his pc. She has lots of Family photos on it which she hasn't backed up.
Is there any chance of retrieving the photos?

Thanks in advance.

My daughters computer casing is cracked and wondered if i can purchases another one


Hello my friend.
It it's casing(or shell) for a laptop you need, it is usually available by parts on ebay. But it would be very difficult to remove the casing and put the pieces back together. I wouldn't recommend you replacing the case or shell.
I would suggest just put a skin over your laptop. It's a lot easier. Check out this link http://www.skinit.com/devices/laptop/toshiba_laptop
~Hope this helps~~

The start up was loading and it is slow..and my friend said that the hard disk of my netbook is the problem..what will i do?


The slow start can be a caused by the processor speed, ram, graphics, bios, many things can cause it to load up slowly if your friend thinks its the hard drive without physically hearing the sounds it makes then its probably is, i would recommend you buy a new hard drive for your laptop and installing your operating system depending on how big you want the hard drive to be can be a bit expensive getting a hard drive with at-least 2-4 meg cache will greatly speed it up too.

Sounds like your hard drive is going bad. Best thing to do is to take it to a shop and ask them to check your hard drive. Or, if at all possible plug it into another PC externally with a external HDD kit and check it with programs such as crystal disk info.


Best of luck

Sounds like a definite no boot issue. Turn the system on to the diagnostics (Fn + Power) see if the diagnostics show a failure. If the hard drive passes diagnostics, then boot to the XP CD and try repairing the WIndows installtion

Apple's are the best for graphics, but you might have to spend a pretty nickle to get a good one, my friend spent $2800.00usd on his mac book pro with 4 gb ram and 320 gb hard drive

Compaq e500 boot up problem


If it were my laptop here is what I would do: 1. Install a new hard drive. 2. Install the operating system. 3. After an anti-virus program was installed and updated, I would connect the old hard drive to the laptop using one of those external USB hard drive adapter cables. 4. If the old drive proves to be readable, copy documents/photos/bookmarks to the new hard drive. Hope this helps.
