Specs: Windows xp
I hope its not a repost I did look through the topics for help. I have a Compaq Presario V2405US laptop with windows xp home ED. Last week I open to turn it on and the Compaq logo showed on the screen it beep twice then the screen went to a black screen and says Press to Resume to Setup, I press F1 or F10 and nothing happens it wont boot up nothing, next I Reboot the computer and as it's started I repeatedly tap the F8 key to get to the Safe Mode menu and nothing back to Press to Resume to Setup, I tried pressing the ESC key to check boot menu nothing, I tried inserting the Recovery cd to repair it but it wont work at all , cd spins but them stops, when I reboot it spins stops then back to the same Press to Resume to Setup, If you have any suggestions please tell me how to fix this. Thanks

... its only a watch type battery cheap click me

... the location may vary to under your ramchip/harddrive even your keyboard, you maybe lucky and have an easy find!

... the battery should have numbers on it to match


... best to leave it in untill you have the replacement (takes seconds) as removal may evoke security locks which could prove costly
