Another bad series Presario Compaq Laptops by [email protected]
Recently, I just received about 10 dead Compaq presario v2000 series from different customers. Power connector is OK, Power goes to some chips but not all, must be a bad IC somewhere. If anyone has experience with this, please share, thank you.

Any additional BIOS options? by Jim Geith
Other than F10 for the limited BIOS settings on late model Deskpros, are there any other screens for BIOS settings? It seems like several years ago on Compaq or HP PC's it was possible to Cntl+F10 to get to a "hidden" area of the BIOS and expose more conventional options. I was helping...
