Hi, every time i turn on my computer, the Compaq logo shows up for 2 seconds, and then, it beeps twice and the screen displays: "press F1 to resume, F2 to setup. I pressed the buttons, but i dint work! help!
My laptop is doing the same thing. there is nothing else that displays. could it be that something with the keyboard might have burned or sumthing? but all the problems that the others are having i am having also. what can i do?

Re: Compaq Presario V2000 boot up problem
When u turn on pc what do u see.usually have message bottom left hand screen indicating what key to press to enter setup.
this key is for bios setup .the f 2 key you are refering to is to setup os(windows)but if hd has error you cant setup or resume.
Its not too bad and easily fixed but I need to know what is on screen on power up.
the fault is in hd and only needs os reinstalling or repairing.
2 beeps means system cant find hd(os)

Beep codes are unique to each brand of computer:
1 short with 1 long beep = bad bios. Must reload bios from disc.
2 short beeps = general bios failure
for more - do a google search for "v2000 Beep Codes" and go to the link for "bioscentral" - all are listed.
Please verify the capacity and how many memory modules you have in the system?
If your system won't turn on and get 2 beeping sounds. It is an issue with your memory (RAM) you may need to reseat the memory card. After reseating the memory card (RAM) and the issue persist and i suggest to check also the warranty of your system from your coomputer manufacturer for part replacement.
