Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
My laptop computer will not turn on...I have two laptops so I tried switching the batteries to see if that was the problem, and still nothing. I was so frustrated with it that one day about 2 weeks ago I decided to unscrew the back compartments and just see if anything looked out of place, of if it was dusty...After doing that and screwing everything back into place I tried to turn it on, and it worked! BUT, now it is doing the same thing, where it won't turn on again, and after unscrewing everything again, it is still not turning on...I have no idea what is going on, but I need this laptop to work because it has alot of important stuff on it...Can anyone help?

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.

Can't help you with repairing laptop but it's easy to save any important documents, pictures etc. Buy a hard drive 'caddy' -costs less than £10 on Ebay - must be a caddy only and not an external hard drive. Take the hard drive out of your broken laptop and put it in the caddy - connect this to your other laptop and it shows up as and external USB drive. Just copy the info you need to your laptop. No damage done to hard drive and it can if needs be just be put back into the non working one so you can mess about without risking losing everything.
