I bought the notebook about 2 years ago. last year during a power surge my motherboard was fried. I sent the notebook to Hp and they replaced the motherboard. When i got it back the computer was fine but i contracted a virus that got into my system32, and well...you know how that ended up. so i reformatted and reinstalled the OS, and reinstalled the drivers. After i reinstalled the drivers the notebook would not boot up. when i power on the notebook the boot screen comes on and then it restarts the computer. This cycle continues until i hold the power switch down or remove the battery.

Re: Presario V2000 Random Rebooting
You need to format and install windows from a known good disk, of course you'll also need to obtain the drivers for the laptop as well.
I assume when you reformatted the hard drive, you didn't save the recovery partition?
If that's the case, you'll need to go to HP support for thew drivers.
It sounds like software issues. Good luck

surges usually just kill pc.. your pc motherboard or other equipment has been fried to be honest. Only thing to do is take it all apart and start putting it back together piece at a time and rebooting till you can find the bad part. Unless u want to spend some hefty cash on shop or equipment that tells you what is wrong.
Disconnect battery and unplug from power, test for voltage on power cord and re-insert, hold down power switch. If nothing try battery without power cord. Still nothing (no lights, no sounds) then it may need system board replacing.
im assuming its not dissabled, if not then go to control panel, network connections and right click on your network card and go to properties then driver and see if there is a code 9 meaning it's faulty or the device is working.
if it is faulty then it's part of the motherboard anyway and you will have to buy a pcmcia network card and connect through that instead
