    I used the Windows XP CD that comes with the laptop.

    When I first reinstall the OS, I chose the option to reformat my HD. It took very long time to reach 100% reformat. After this is done, it becomes hang. I waited for at least 30 minutes and still no change in screen. So I just power cycle the machine. After that, I tried to redo the installation, but this time all I got is blank screen.

    I need to ask some more questions before making any suggestions.

    1. Why were you trying to reinstall Windows?

    2. Does the reinstall just freeze or do you get any warning signs?

    3. Have you made any hardware changes like extra memory since you bought the machine?

    How were you doing the reinstall? with recovery disks or the recovery utility on the laptop?

Your harddrive shouldn't have taken a long time to format during the Windows setup procedure, the format operation carried out during setup is a very simple format and doesn't normally take long.
If you know the make of harddrive fitted to your machine, go to the manufacturers website and download the diagnostic tools for your harddrive.
If you don't know the make of harddrive then Hitachi's "Drive Fitness Test" is a good all round diagnostic tool for all makes of harddrive.
Whichever tool you use the best way to run it is from a bootable CD, so you will need to download the tool to a computer with a CD burner. The diagnostic tools are run in a virtual DOS environment created by the CD when you start your compter up with the CD in the CD tray.
You can download the Hitachi tester and read the instructions here:

Please come back and let me know the test results.

I need to master reset my compaq presario v2000


I have to assume you mean you Windows to become the way it was originally? If you have XP then put in the XP disk boot from it, press Enter when the system ask if you want to install Windows. Press F8 when the legal page comes up and then on the next page it should ask if you want to repair your system. Press R. If the repair option does not appear then press F3 to exit.
If you have Vista - it only has a boot repair option
If none of these apply then you'll have to do a total reinstall. You do have the Office suite on CD with your own key?

Help!!


Is it a restart with a blue screen? Is it XP?
If it is XP do the following:
Boot the laptop with a Win XP cd.
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your applications, it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Hi,

To resolve this issue, simple trick is, when it stands at the wallpaper without Start menu and Task bar, Press Alt + Ctrl + Del keys

Under that select Windows Explorer process and select End

Again click on File menu in the same Window and select New Task.

Type Explorer.exe in the blank and click okay--OK

That should bring the complete screen.

Reinstalling Windows on Presario V2000


Well, you can install XP as long as you have a CD and your laptop has a COA with a key. Hit delete, F2 or F10 to start the system in setup, change the order of boot devices to make the CD your primary boot device. Restart, boot into the CD and follow the prompts. After you complete your installation you can go to www.hp.com SUPPORT and DOWNLOADS and find whatever drivers you are missing. Take your time and you'll do fine.
