Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
My V2000 (about 2 years old) has recently started having problem with power and net work card. When i switch to battery it does not show the power meter.Even in control panel power options. when i click the power meter tab it goes"not responding".
Also my network card is not working properly, When I plug in the network cable , windows shows that it's connecting then in next second it states that the network cable is unplugged. this happens continuously.
Windows XP did not function well also. Had problems with shutting down and restarting, Some times it takes a very long time to shut down and also at the boot up.
First i tried reinstalling windows xp thinking it was a software problem, But found it difficult to reinstall, severall times it did not installed properly the same problems appear when restarting during the installation.
(before about one year back i also found a problem with my modem. When using AC power my dial up internet connection was very slow. but when i switched to battery the internet connection speeds up. I can clearly see the data download rate drops as I turn back the AC power, I didn't bother to fix this problem as i started using an ADSL connection )
Compaq Presario V2000 seems to have intermittent problems with its power supply . In any case check out to see if there are any strange noises from your harddisk which you can hear if put your ear close to the laptop after switching it on .
