Question about Compaq Presario Notebook

1 Answer

Format and Installation

I have a compaq presario (V2000) bought 2 and a half years back and running on windows XP professional. Till date, it has been formatted just once and that was done by the vendor itself. Now, the system is dead slow and I wish to format and re install XP again. How do I go about it? I have also lost the original key of XP, is there any way I can get it from my system? Any tips in reinstalling the drivers and softwares?

I have an older Compaq Presario V2000. I recently had a new hard drive installed with windows xp professional. The S video port won't work when I connect it to the TV.


Make sure the most up to date video/chipset drivers are installed. You can get these at HP's support site listed below, just choose the appropriate V2000 model from the list (your exact model number will be printed on the bottom of your laptop) and download and install these drivers.

How do i delete everything on my presario v2000 to go back as it came from factory


Using a Windows install DVD boot of the DVD and simply follow instruction, when you get to the Format window, Format FULL NTFS, this will zero your drive and allow a new installation of Windows, from there proceed to the end and you will have a Factory fresh install, you MUST first however download ALL drivers for your PC, and store them on a DVD Flash Drive, so that you can install them after you have installed Windows.

Cannot reinstall Window XP


Your harddrive shouldn't have taken a long time to format during the Windows setup procedure, the format operation carried out during setup is a very simple format and doesn't normally take long.
If you know the make of harddrive fitted to your machine, go to the manufacturers website and download the diagnostic tools for your harddrive.
If you don't know the make of harddrive then Hitachi's "Drive Fitness Test" is a good all round diagnostic tool for all makes of harddrive.
Whichever tool you use the best way to run it is from a bootable CD, so you will need to download the tool to a computer with a CD burner. The diagnostic tools are run in a virtual DOS environment created by the CD when you start your compter up with the CD in the CD tray.
You can download the Hitachi tester and read the instructions here:

Please come back and let me know the test results.
