I have the V2000. I got it from my friend. I loaded office on it without problem. I then tried to load a baseball game on to the HD and it wouldnt play. I tried to play a DVD and a CD on it and it wont do it. I tried the sound button but I get no sound. Any ideas?

Hi Of course without seeing it I can't make an exact diagnosis. My first though is that you have a bad sector on the hard drive which keeps Windows from loading because the head can't recover data under the bad sector. Slave this hard drive to a good one and back up the data. Download a copy of hdtune.exe. You can confirm the status of the hard drive with this. If you find bad sectors - replace the drive
I have the same model,so you are in luck!! The drivers are really actually already there,you just have to tell the laptop(windows) to "look again",so to speak.Just go to Control panel/hardware/device manager,then righ click on any device listed and then scan for hardware changes.You will see "new harware found",then it will tell you it found multimedia device and continue to load the drivers for you.If it`s the same as mine,it will be ATI integrated digital audio,then you should have sound.Please let me know if it works for you:)
There are a number of things that can cause this to happen. Try taking the battery out of the notebook, disconnect the AC adaptor (if in use) press the power button a few times. Re-install the battery, reconnect the AC (if needed), press and hold the power button for about 2 seconds. This is a hard reboot and should correct you issue. When the notebook powers up, make sure you remove any cd's in the cd-rom drive.
no its a software problem.....I believe you are using Windows XP. can you tell when it loads or starts to load it stops at the windows loading part only does it go near the boot screen ie; XP loading........like that or straight to blue screen. Ive seen this before its not a hardware its a software. Have you got the installation disk XP if so.....insert it in the CDrom and start the machine up from scratch.
Allow windos to go through the rig ma role of installation until it cant go no further. Press "R" for console go to the DOS line and type chkdsk /p allow windows to repair the problem when done remove the disk and start up again.....if Im right it should go pass that nagging "loading windows screen"...I hope it works for you, you'll be elated.
Get into the bios setup at start screen. Put as a first boot your cd/dvd rom. save and exit/restart. Get the xp SP2 and download avast antivirus. The first thing you have to do before browsing anywhere else. EXECUTE THE SETUP, install, RESTART and have fun..
