Compaq Presario V6000 won't start up

Screen stay dark, hard disk indicator does not appear to be lit up, but "blue Lights" flash and the CD drive buzzes as it tried to read it....after a few minutes it powers down. I have removed battery and put it back in. Any ideas? It is 2 years old...no prior problems...doesn't appear to "run hot" as ofhers have said.

    Same problem. You press power, all the lights come on and you hear it spin up, no video to the screen, then about 10-15 seconds later the laptop turns off. Also does the same thing if you remove the hard drive, memory, and battery.

    same trouble, 'puter is 2 years old, but doesn't shut off after 15 secs. there's also a blue lite i noticed in the frame of the touch pad that looks like the screen. what's it for? this is my kid's laptop, and he doesn't know. he said his friend said it's toast, but i don't buy that. it seems there's maybe a locking device to keep the screen off? i listen to the machine boot up, cycle, and fan-on, but no screen.. will hp do this under warranty?

Called HP they were ABSOLUTELY NO HELP!
Kept telling me about some Limited Warranty! They wanted to charge $250 + shipping, to replace. The machine could be replaced for that price.

Call HP technical support - I just had the same problem - It's the mother board - HP will fix it for free. They will send you a box to ship it by FEDX for free also. Absolutely N/C to you. I'm actually waiting for the box to come right now. It'l take approx. 2 wks. for you to get your lap top back.

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

I have not continuing windows xp. if i start xp installation then the blue screen appears. i want to know to change bios setup on sata mode


The problem is that XPinstallation CD does not have a SATA driver, unless you have a SATA drive on adisk etc. and can install the driver when XP asks for a hard drive driver then,XP cannot detect the hard disk and therefore won't install XP. The FIX. Go into the BIOS anddisable the SATA drive (enable IDE emulation), this will make XP think it is aIDE/PATA hard disk. Then you can install XP normally. When Windows hasbeen installed then install all the device drivers (including the SATA driver),then shut down and boot up and got into the BIOS and enable the SATA drive.

If the laptop appear to boot up (ie the hard disk LED flashes) but you cannot see an image on the screen, then you could have a backlight problem.
To determine the actual fault, please follow my instructions which are on this link :-

Computer start-up repair fails.


hard drives are 50 bucks

how could replacing a small component in something cost as much as the whole system, i don't get your question... i don't think you really thought that one through.

"my brakes on my car need to be replaced, will that cost the same as buying a new car?"

think before you speak next time, thanks

Presario 700 has a blank screen. Started occasionally going to a blank screen, now it stay blank. Will replacing the hard drive correct this problem?


If the laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk is spinning and the hard disk LED is flashing then the hard disk is OK.
Then the fault could be a faulty video cable or connector or CCFL lamp or inverter.
Try reseating the video cable/connector that connects to the motherboard first.
If this doesn't work then to determine if you have a LCD screen, inverter or video card problem, read this and follow these instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashs on red/pink and off. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickering on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp.
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Compaq Presario V6000 rebooting blank screen


I am almost sure that it is a motherboard. When all of the lights stay solid and it seems to start, but shuts off is most likely the motherboard. You can save the data if you get a proper enclosure for the hard drive. You can call Compaq support to make sure that those signs are the motherboard.

Compaq Presario V2000 boot problem


Bios is not on an hard drive, is on a memory chipinside computer. Your main problem is not with Bios, but with system.
On many Compaq you can start the recovery tool by pressing f10 or f11 on startup. The system recovery tool it is located on hard disk, if it does not start it had been deleted or is damaged.

In your case Windows is corrupted, that is the reason why it is freezing , and then giving the blue error screen.

You need to get a Windows setup disk and reintall Windows. If you install windows from a generic setup disk you will need to install drivers after installing.
Drivers can be downloaded from HP website.

Another solution is calling the phone number listed on the user manual to contact HP. you can buy from them an original recovery CD, in this case you won't need drivers.

Otherwise you can ask a quote to a local repair shop for a system reinstall, I think it is about $80.

Compaq Presario 700 laptop problem


Most of the time blue screens like that indicate hardware issues. You may try replacing the memory. I wouldn't put too much money into something of that age, though.
