Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook

2 Answers

Replacing harddrive I have both a Compaq Presario V2000 and V5000. My V5000 got some slight water damage, it still works, except the computer thinks the backspace key is stuck, so it won't let me type anything. I was wondering if it is possible to replace the V2000 hardrive with the one in my V5000? Are they compatible? If so, I have been having trouble finding a site that will give me instructions on how to remove the harddrive from my particular models. I am not a computer wizard, so the more detailed the better. Thanks

V5000 problems


what you need 2 do is either take the whole laptop back 2 where you brought it or even the battery cause you have a faulty battery.

most laptop batterys last for at least 5-10 years and after that no matter how much you charge them up they alwayz seem to be flat.

so my suggestion is get a new battery or take it back to the place that you brought it from and than get it replaced for free as long as you have your recept.

My compaq presario v5000 shut down and wont restart


Depending on your Bios Version I think later then V44 fixed a bug that would cause your computer no to start if the battery was dead with the V5000. Remove the battery and try booting from just AC power.

I have also had the same issue when my bios battery is loose or dead. The battery can be accessed from the memory area. Once you open it on the left should be memory and on the right will be the wifi card. You don't need to unplug the cables just remove the wifi card and examine the battery. The battery is held by a very very flimsy piece of platic and really easy to break. The best thing I have found is using a little piece of cardboard from a box or something and using it to keep the battery tight, just dont go shaking the laptop alot and it will hold it. It might also be possible your bios battery is dead.

From what I say I would hit power it would power for about 3 seconds the power light would flash then turn off.
