Question about HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook
It won't even pass POST. What happens when I press the power button on the laptop is the power led lights up solid orange and the Num lock and Scroll lock leds keep flashing orange.
I've already replace the motherboard with a new one that I order from eBay and same thing is happening. So right now I'm totally 90% heading toward replacing the CPU as it probably burnt out. (Grr... probably should've replace the CPU first.)
Any other thoughts people before I go out and order a CPU replacement.
What is amd or intel

I have a Compaq Presario V2000 Noteebook, that is two years old.
It stopped working and I called Compaq. After diagnosing thee problem, they advisedc me that my hard drive had crashed and I need a new hard drive. so I bought a new hard drive and replaced the old one. I cannot get the notebook to bootup. I get the following message when I try to boot it up:
PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable
PXE-MOE: Exiting PXE ROM.
I have checked the cable and there is nothing wrong there.

Being that a new motherboard did not fix the problem, I would try these things next:
1) Swap the RAM and try again. Faulty memory will stop a PC dead in its tracks.
2) HP's and Compaq's are known to have issues if ANY of the cables are not plugged in all the way, or are in cocked at an angle. I have "saved" at least 4 HP/Compaqs just by unplugging and plugging the internal cables (like keyboard, mouse, power button board, LCD, etc). This is a lengthy process... but, hey; if it fixes it, why not? (don't forget to check the connector on the back of the LCD itself!
3) Unplug the battery and A/C power. Hold the power button for 30 seconds. On most laptops, this resets the charging/power circuits and can revive some dead laptops.
4) remove all non-necessary devices from the laptop and try booting again. These include: Hard Drive, CD-ROM, WiFi Card, Modem board, Keyboard, Touchpad, and anything else that isn't needed to boot. If it starts up with them removed, start putting them back in one at a time until it fails to boot again. That's your culprit.
Good luck, I hope that helps.

With all the trouble you are having to go through determining the issue , might be a better idea to head out to a store and get a new laptop (Cant stop laughing over that future shop commerical with the funny names the robot calls the customer)
