Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
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.
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.
