This sounds like a hard drive failure. Before you do anything, extract the hd and hook it up USB to a good computer, and extract your data.

So, from there, it is a dollars and cents question....You have to either clone the hard drive, if it can be read, or a system reload on to a NEW hard drive. When this is all done, often you are 2/3 of the cost of a new machine, but you still have an older system.... Fans fail, HD's fail, keyboards fail.....Windows 7 works no worries there...

This is your call. Personal data is important. Especially photos and e-mail addresses...

Repair manual for compaq presario M2000

Free Service Manual,

Go down to the Compaq Presario heading. (Sixth line down)
Scroll across, and click on M2000.

This is a PDF file. It may take as long as 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

(Suggestion: Save it to your computer. Burn a copy off to CD disk. Run the disk to see if it's good, then delete it off of your computer to save harddrive space)

Install without cd compaq presario m2000

of course you can: compaq/hp have a seperate partition for that same purpose (usually it is drive M), and u can access that when you start your computer as soon as you see the black window, you see something like "press F10 for recovery" or F11 (depends, u will see it), but from that is a smooth sale. and u should be able to do the recovery. (sometimes it asks for one CD , the one that came with the computer , so make sure u have it just in case)
