Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario V2000 Notebook ?

BOOTING PROBLEM My laptop is compaq presario v3029 AU.My laptop faced booting problem twice within the warranty period and the motherboard was replaced.Now its happened for the third time and replacing motherboard,would cost me half the price I had purchased my laptop for.I feel the problem am facing is repairable instead of replacing.The compaq service technicians have not given me any convincing reason for the problem occurring twice and they just repalced.However I feel it could be repaired.


Answers :

1. Look at the power supply to determine if the fan is working.If not replace the motherboard to see if the computer starts.If the fan is working, try another power supply anyway.
2. Shake the case and listen for loose metallic objects that may cause you computer to stop starting.
3. Inspect the motherboard for broken or burnt components.
4.If you hear beeps when you start your computer try to decode the beep code using the internet.
5.Try a different video card.
6.See if the CPU and memory will work with another motherboard.if yes it means that they are not damaged.
7.Replace the motherboard.If the computer starts it means that your motherboard was damaged.
                                (and)
Unless your machine took a bad fall down some stairs, I am guessing you have a problem with hardware. Unplug the machine and remove the battery. Unplug any external devices like cards, USB devices and printers, etc., and then reboot. Is the hard drive running? Try F10 into setup, and then select LOAD SAFE DEFAULTS AND REBOOT, or something similar. If this does not get it going, check to see if the harddrive or memory has become unseated in their bays somehow. Turn the laptop over, remove the screws covering the little doors, lovingly and gently unscrew the harddrive retaining screw and remove it, and then put it back in and secure the screws. Check to make sure the memory modules are seated correctly, and reseat them if necessary. Then try rebooting. If you get the same problem, go into the BIOS again and check to make sure you are booting to the HDD as first, and then start turning off devices in the BIOS and rebooting in cycles until it boots. Also, try booting to CD (for example, OS installation disk) and if that works, you likely have a boot problem or hardware problem on the hard drive.

Good luck....
