    Is this only on the battery? Or AC power?

Is the machine getting hot when it shuts down? If so, then you may need to clean the fan and heat sink. A dust or dirt build up can hinder the cooling system performance allowing the machine to heat up to a level that kicks in the built in fail safes in order to keep from damaging the processor. Try cleaning them and let me know. We'll go from there.

My laptop turns on but will not boot up


It doesn't boot up because  Windows is corrupted. Just reinstall. If the problem returns very fast then the hard disk is dying, replace it and reinstall one more time.

I was wiping the hard drive when the laptop


Please come back to us with the exact error if you get any.

However, how you are performing recovery. Using recovery manager or recovery discs?

If you are using recovery manager, please perform hard drive self test and check with the result.

Hard drive self test steps:

1. Turn Off the notebook.
2. Turn ON the notebook and keep tapping F10 key
3. Once you are in BIOS, navigate to tools/diagnostics tab with the help of left and right arrow key.
4. You will find Primary HDD self test or HDD self test.
5. With the help of up and down arrow key select the respective test and hit enter.
6. Short test will take only 4-5 minutes. However, long test may take 40-60 minutes.


If the hard drive is fine, try to perform recovery using recovery discs....

If still the problem exists try with different discs.

If the hard drive fails replace the hard drive.

Hope this will work for you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111

My Compaq Pres V2000 laptop does not get on with power on switch


Take out the battery and only hook up the AC Adapter to see if the laptop turns on. If it does then you know the battery is shorting out the laptop and either has very little power to turn on the laptop or is shorting out the laptop cause its bad.

If you don't get the laptop to turn on, make sure your using a well known working wall outlet to plug the laptop to and only use the AC Adapter. If you AC Adapter is hooked up and the Green Led turns on then you know the adapter is good.

After those two steps, you can also try taking out the dvd drive and the hard drive. Then try turning on the laptop and if the laptop still doesn't turn on then the motherboard is bad in the laptop.

Hi there.
The hard drive has failed and you will need to replace it.
If the laptop is under a year old take advantage of the warranty and send it in to be repaired for free.
