HP/Compaq :: Presario V5000 Laptop Crashed

Jun 27, 2009

I have a laptop that crashed and I'm trying to take the steps to figure out what's exactly is wrong with her and how to fix her. I've talked with several computer repair people who have array of prices just to figure out what's wrong and another price to fix it plus parts and I just do not have that money. If anyone can help me out i would appreciate the help I'm trying to get it up and running before school starts.

I have a Compaq Presario V5000 (V5315WM)
Windows XP

On start up it goes to a black screen displaying NTLDR is missing Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart

Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del it goes right back to NTLDR is missing

I've also ran a Primary HDD Self-test and within a few seconds the Test Status came up Fail

I'm not sure what that means as I've read that doesn't always necessarily means the hard drive is fried

Would a recovery disk help and if so are there any free ones to download off the computer?

HP/Compaq :: Can't Install Any OS On Presario V5000

May 14, 2010

i got a new laptop Compaq Presario V5015US Notebook PC, from a guy on craigslist.

I first noticed a problem when i tried to install windows xp and it stalled during initial setup when it says "setup is starting windows"

I've tried various cd's and other operating systems such as puppy linux and ubunta. They all seem to freeze up when they try to load.

I've ran hard drive and memory tests with various bootable cd rom disks, and tried various partitions and file systems.

I've switched and tested various compatable hardware components such as hard drives, ram, and cdroms.

I've tried various HAL selections while trying to install windows.

I've gutted the machine and booted it up on a piece of cardboard with only bare minimals for hardware.

I'm not 100% sure it's a hardware problem, because I have an older hard drive with windows 98 installed on it, and it loaded up and ran windows 98 perfectly.

HP/Compaq :: Presario V5000- No Boot But Will Charge Battery

Mar 19, 2010

I have a Compaq Presario V5000 that will not power up. Fans and drives don't spin up. The odd thing is it will charge the battery when hooked up to the power supply. The orange lightning bolt is solid until it is fully charged then it blinks. I have a second power supply and I get the same result.

The laptop does nothing when I remove the battery and try to run in directly on the power supply. I have re-seated the memory, hard drive, DVD drive, WiFi, keyboard, touchpad, monitor, audio board and replaced the power button board.

I also checked the power level going all the way to the processor and all is well.

HP/Compaq :: V5000 Mobo

Jun 18, 2009

My mobo has been going bad. I've been slowly losing functionality. First, my multimedia card slots stopped working, then one usb port, then all usb ports and lastly my bluetooth module is working. I've concluded that I must have a bad mobo.

Is that the right assessment?

If it is and the mobo needs replacing which mobo do I use?

But let me be more specific, there are two types of mobos, a full-featured and a de-featured. I'm positive that i have the full-featured mobo but my problem is finding the right mobo with the right product number. I've searched online and the product numbers are all over the place. What's really confusing me is that I've found the same product numbers being used for both full-featured and de-featured mobos. So this makes it difficult to know which one to buy.

HP/Compaq :: Virus Infected Laptop Presario 2200

Aug 26, 2009

I have tried to use combofix and other software to rid this laptop of the virus but I can't seem to do that. It is not recongnizing the CD/DVD ROM so I can't use the Recovery Disc. It won't let me use a command prompt. If I could get it to let me do a clean sweep maybe I can run the software on it.

HP Compaq Presario CQ56-154CA Lockups :: Laptop Won't Load BIOS

Dec 9, 2010

I have a compaq presario CQ56 - 154CA laptop. I wiped the hard drive using DriveCleanser in TrueImage Home 2011 and then attempted to load the recovery manager with F11 (or F10 or whatever it is), but now all I get is a red screen with the big Q logo with "press ESC for startup menu" on the bottom left and  it just hangs there. I did wipe the Win7 and the System partitions, but not the Recovery partition. I did do a backup of those 3 partitions onto my external drive, but the laptop won't boot from a bootable flash drive I made in True Image, nor any of my boot CD's. And I did set the bios to boot from flash first, then DVD, then hard drive before wiping.
 
I didn't make the recovery DVD's with Recovery Manager in Win7, but I shouldn't need them since the Recovery partition is still there.
 
I've read that some Compaq laptops use a utility on the hard drive to load the bios, startup menu etc, so if that is the case with mine then it was thoroughly deleted. If this is the case, is there any way I can get it back on the drive?
 
If not, I could try to remove the drive and put it in an ext enclosure and hook it up to my desktop. It's possible that I can use the flash drive to use True Image to restore the two wiped partitions. Also, I've read that in this instance, removing the drive and then turning on the laptop may allow the bios to load, but I'd really rather not take out the drive if I don't have to.

Aug 4, 2012

I have a Compaq Presario CQ60. The Display does not appear to be working. When I turn on the laptop the display remains black. No boot up screen, nothing. I can't go into the bios because I have no screen. The screen remains black. The harddrive appears to be working and all other functions appear to be working but I am not sure because I have no screen.
 
Is this a known issue with the Compaq Presario CQ60?

Mar 25, 2013

my Dell inspiron 15R N5010 crashed on me, I had no previous warning that this was going to happen, when it crashed I was just watching a movie and not using up much CPU power. The laptop had not over been over heated, I checked straight after it crashed.

Apr 6, 2010

I bought a sony vaio laptop a little over 2 years ago. I never had a problem untill about 4 monthes ago. I got the "blue screen of death". It said something about the BIOS but would never stay on long enough for me to totaly read it. I went to Best Buy and asked if they had any ideas.

The guy said to contact Sony and get a recovery disk, so i did. I ran the cd but half way through it I got another blue screen that read:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time youve seen this stop error screen, follow these steps:

HP/Compaq :: Presario C500 Fan

Feb 15, 2010

My ancient C500 fan is noisy, a constant slight grindy noise. Its been like this for months and I cant take it anymore. Can I clean or replace it w/o too much trouble or is it time for a new laptop? Looks like I'd have to take off the whole bottom to get at it...which Iwill do, if it will shut the damn thing up.

HP/Compaq :: Presario 1500

Apr 18, 2010

i have a compaq presario 1500 with a pentium 4 running XP SP3 on it. I am having trouble with keeping it under a good heat, the fan is constantly running high! i know this needs a good clean but the screws to remove the back casing are so small for me to do this! any suggestions of how i can clean inside? or get to th fan through the top by the keyboard?

secondly it tends to crash every now and then, maybe when it overclocks on the cpu?? i am recently trying out a program called speedswitchXP which seems to be slowing it down to an extent! but not solving the issue.

thirdly and finally, my battery only holds charge for around 10 minutes before needing constant wall plugin! i constantly have it plugged into the wall, could this be a result to any of my problems?

HP/Compaq :: Presario Won't Boot

Dec 3, 2009

got a Presario V2000 that will not boot whatsoever.

Upon pressing the power button, the machine starts up and displays the standard "Windows could not start properly" screen. Every option I choose, from the three Safe mode options, to the Last Known Good Config, to Start Windows Normally will not work.

I choose an option and everything goes smoothly, the Windows XP splash screen pops up & stays there for a few seconds, then goes blanks for a slightly longer length of time before a blue screen pops up. I can't remember the first few numbers, but the rest I'm pretty sure is accurate:

(a series of letters/numbers is here) (Registry File Failure)

The registry cannot load the file
SysCommandSysCom32ConfigSOFTware
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt, (something I cant remember), or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical assistance.

.....and it pretty much repeats over and over in a continuous cycle like this until I power it off.

What I'm wondering is where exactly the problem lies? On the Hard Drive--where the drive itself needs to be replaced or the OS just wiped and reinstalled fresh.......or is this indicative of a hardware failure...which would mean this lappy is pretty much dead?

HP/Compaq :: Presario V6305NR

Apr 2, 2009

On pressing start button, laptop starts, but blank screen comes. After every few seconds, it keeps on rebooting, but nothing happens.

I have tried pressing F10 and Esc button on startup, but nothing happens.

Moving finger over multimedia touch buttons causes them to beep.

Few times, it shows the BIOS, but does not detect the hard-drive.

Very rarely, everything works fine and OS boots and works fine (without any sign of problem).

I replaced RAMs, hard-drive and DVD Reader in other laptop and there they worked absolutely fine.

I even tried removing the battery, connecting external monitor, keyboard, but nothing worked.

BIOS version is F.3D.
When opened, CPU fan and heatsink were dustfree.

Product Specs: HP Presario V6305NR, 1.6 GHz AMD Turion 64 X2 Dual-Core Mobile Technology TL-50, 1024MB DDR2 System Memory (2 Dimm), NVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 (UMA)

HP/Compaq :: Presario V2000 AC

Apr 15, 2009

I have a Presario V2000.

After not using for about 1 week I turned it on so I could clean it from viruses.

Got the battery alert and then it shutdown meanwhile I was pluging the cord in (Targus AC cord with

blue light).

When I connected the AC to the power (not connected yet to the laptop) it "turned on" and still today

shows a blue light. But once I plug it to the laptop the blue light disappears after 3-5 seconds!

Not at the beginning nor the end of this process the laptop will turn on if I press the power button

for 'x' seconds. If I plug the cord, the computer doesn't show any "power light" and then the blue

light from the Targus AC fades off.................

HP/Compaq :: HP G50 & G60- Presario Cq-50 &60 VS. C700

Jan 18, 2009

I am so much happier with this notebook than I was with my Presario C714NR.

Why;
Upgraded Intel GMA 4500M 768MB Max VRAM VS. 384MB on C700 GMA x3100
Upgraded support for 8GB Max Memory VS. 3GB with the C700 **Some G/CQ's can only handle 4GB
15.6" Screen not really a big deal from the 15.4" C700
HDMI Port VS. none on the C700
Media Card is standard in the G series.. VS. optional in C700 series.
Discrete Graphics offerings available for the G series and CQ-Series VS. integrated only C700
G/CQ offers shiny black top finish. C700 More grainy finish.
Better gaming performance, however, not really a gaming laptop.

HP has made some great improvements to the Compaq offering, however compaq will always lack some of the premium features like FingerPrint reader......

HP/Compaq :: LCD- Presario F700

May 8, 2010

just yesterday i started having a bit of trouble with my screen. when I open it to a full position so it is at optimum tilt for viewing, the colors become slightly washed out and whites gain a blueish tinge, while blacks have this sort of red static/noise behind them. However, when i tilt the screen to a very acute angle, the colors return to normal. I think it might be a connection that got a little loosened- i dropped my laptop onto a car floor a few days ago while on a trip.

HP Presario CQ61-411WM OS/Software :: Laptop Sometimes Boots But Mostly Get Single Blinking LED On Caps Lock And Num Lock

May 19, 2014

Presario CQ61-411WM
Operating System is Windows 7
 
Most of the time the laptop will not boot up and I get the single blinking LED on Caps Lock and Num Loc. However, if I am persistent and keep trying the start button it will boot up.  After it boots up every thing works fine.  I can even do a restart and it will stop and boot back up.  But if I do a shutdown then I will have to push the start button several times (it will come up with the single blinking LED on Caps Lock and Num Loc)  before it will boot up again.

HP/Compaq :: Presario C717NR Screen

Apr 15, 2010

if I opened the screen anymore than 4-5 inches, it would freeze half the screen and turn the over half into a complete jumbled mess. I ordered replacement screen about 2 months ago, and w/ me being lazy and all, it's been sitting on my office floor. I've been using the laptop daily, but instead it stays on my desk and is running through an Acer desktop monitor w/o any issues whatsoever.

So I brokedown and started installing the new screeen today, only to get this when I switched the output back over to the laptop:

It made an audible whining noise both times I switched over, so I quickly switched it off. At this point I'm wondering if the cable from the motherboard to the screen is the issue, but I don't wanna keep throwing parts at a computer this only cost me $250 brand new.

Also, when I finally get this figured out...I can't remember which plug this mic connector goes into.

It can either go here next to the keyboard cable or over here by the fan.
