Computer won't fully powerup

Hi,

I have a Compaq V2000 Presario. When I press the power button, I hear the fan spins...then it dies. The HD does not seem to power up. I can see the power button is still lighted. Also, the recharger light is on. Just wondering what is causing this? Thanks.

    Hi,

    Thanks for replying soo quickly. Just to let you know..i can't even get to the CMOS setup at all. It powers up for like1 sec..then dies. I tried taking out the battery and press the power button a few sec to discharge it, however it's still not powering up. I also took out the RAM and put it back again..then tried powering it up...no luck. :-(

If you have access to the internet, and a floppy or CD-ROM drive in the notebook, download a memory-test program and write or burn it. If the notebook successfully runs the memory test, then you have reason to consider the microprocessor memory and general motherboard OK, and to suspect the hard drive.
To boot from a CD-Rom you might have to select that option in the notebook's CMOS. By the way, your question did not say if you could access the CMOS setup menu. But try that also.

Sounds like your power supply may have died. Check all the power connections to your pc (if it is connected to a power-bar, make sure the power bar has not gone bad). If everything looks good there, you probably need to by a new PSU (Power Supply Unit)

Do u have installed recently, some software?
Try to boot up pressing the F8 button, when the menu appears select the option "Windows in safe mode" if u can boot to windows. View our software installed.
If it is not software try, boot whit the windows installation disk enter to the setup and select the option repair, u will go to a DOS prompted window (all black whit white letters) must appear "c:\"
used the command "chkdsk /f /r" let it run he will try to find any problem in the disk.
