    I found the issue; First time I reinstalled because of 640 registry errors, I used the recovery partition, Hosed the whole system some how, and blue screaned(of death) so I took my old image file and burned it to a cd, but the cd wasn't saved as a bootable image, that was the problem, I can enter PC check and Linux partitions no problem. so that was my issue, Thanks though.

You need to go into bios by pressing F2 or delete at boot up. Once you are in setup you need to change the boot sequence to the cd drive as number 1 and the hard drive as number 2 then press F10 to save and exit. then reboot the computer and it will boot off the cd. 
Hope this helps.

    You need to get a program called UltraISO and you can put all the files into a real disk immage then use alchol 120% to burn the ISO to a CD.


    Give It a try It might Work.


    Good Luck

Compaq presario v2000 cant go online using the intergrated broadband connection both wireless & wired. The broadband adaptors are working properly and the wifi has allowed the antivirus to update, but not...


Have you tried to use a different browser to rule out IE (that has not been previously installed on PC)? Try Firefox (I prefer IE BTW), and if your internet starts working you know that it's your browser's. Also, you can check to make sure that there are no proxies setup in your IE. Click on Tools > Internet Options > Connection tab > LAN Settings (at the bottom) - once in LAN Settings, uncheck all the boxes.

DVD drive keeps on opening when starting


If the boot priority in the BIOS setup screen is set to thr CD it  will open the cd door every time you boot looking for the BOOT cd.    It will not accept anything else, at that point except a boot cd since it hasn't found the operating system (windows) yet.    By "blue laptop" you mean "blue screen" DO a "Windows restore" or reinstall windows from the reinstall cd or Harddrive partision containing the restore files.

V2000 does not boot from the CD


if you are trying to boot from a windows cd, the boot menu will be correct, but you need to press ENTER when prompted to boot from the windows cd, the fact that you have a dvd drive makes no difference, the only other problem maybe that if you are using vista the system cannot recognise the discs written format type

Booting my system through LAN


you cannot do this as the lan boot up refers to a workstation and server type setup where the operating system back up is saved on to a server incase of a system crash; which will not apply to your pc.

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.
