Laptop v2000 not turning on

Was working great as video machine for projector unit. Kept getting updates for explorer 6 to go to seven and I would refuse.One day went to turn on and there was nothing, no lights, no hard drive sound, no small flash, nothing. The laptop is only 15 months old and the battery seems fine. Here is what I have done. I took the computer to school to use an IDENTICAL adapter supplied by a friend,no fix. Tried my adapter in his compaq and it worked fine, even charged his battery. I have held the power button down for at least ten seconds and still no lights or power. I have held the hybernate button and power button,still nothing. I took the back off and checked to see power was getting to the motherboard and yes, power is at the adapter terminals. I have removed the small battery but could not find the jumpers to switch so only removed battery. still no power. Can it be the HD? HEELLLPP Me Please

    Tried the Ram one at a time and still no luck. I hope someone has a magic fix out there cause I do not want to fix a motherboard. That is more than a new computer costs.

I am trying to set up an InFocus LP400 projector with my computer. I followed the instructions using the CableWizard Lite cable for my laptop pc and get no projected image. I used the suggested port...


start the connecting all over again, by following the steps below:

1. Turn your computer off.

2. Connect the cable from the computer to the projector. If you want to have your monitor to be hooked up as well, connect a splitter to the video out port (DVI or VGA). You can also just hook the projector up to the second port on your video card (If you have one) or if you have a laptop, you can connect to the video out port on the back.

3. Turn the computer on and boot into your desktop.

4. Turn on the projector. Most projectors have an auto detect function, that will detect a video signal and auto configure the projector to display that signal. If you have a laptop, you have to hit a function key to activate the second display. Usually this is FN Key + F5 or one of the F Keys across the top of the laptop keyboard. It looks like two squares, one empty and one with something in it.

5. Adjust the focus, brightness, contrast, and color on the projector.

6. Aim the projector at something white. Try not to aim it at something highly reflective.

7. Step back ... Load up your favorite game or video ... and enjoy.

Your project should work, after following the above instruction.

Good luck.

Your DVD drive is missing the Burning Program not the driver. I found an update for your windvd software for windows 7 but you probably have to have the full program installed to run the update. Hope this helps.

Missing drivers for compaq presario v2000 machine

Please let me know from where i can download the following drivers for my Compaq Presario v2000 machine: 1. Multimedia Audio Controller 2. Network Controller 3. PCI Modem 4. Video Controller 5. Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

Svideo and component video inputs

You mustn't have them plugged in. So try pulling them out then plugging them in. If this doesn't work you will probably need new cords. When buying the cords keep receipt in case you need to get a refund because it was'nt the problem. Also make sure they are plugged inthe right spot!

Hope this helps - Josh

NOTE : PLEASE GIVE FEEDBACK If you don't in seven days it will be presumed i fixed the problems.


It's likely you have a badly clogged air filter which will greatly shorten the life of the lamp and projector. It MUST be kept clean! Your instruction maunual will show you where it is located. If this does not resolve it, you likely need a new lamp.

Any one help
