bare with me folks. I have a presario v2000 that work well and had no problems, until one day I got the blue screen. :freak: After attempting to reboot the os, xp home....The comp would shut down, and attempt to reboot. But it would give me a message saying HD or OS could not be found.
I began to suspect a faulty HD. Until I noticed the way the HD was held in place. I would would prop it with some shims....and it would work. It would power up and do fine. Until I moved it a certain way, and then it would try to reboot and not recognise OS.
Now, i thought the HD was faulty, but then I put it in an external enclosure and I am able to access the hard drive and all its contents.
So what is the actual problem. I would like to put this laptop back in service. however, your guidance is needed to direct me as to what part I need to buy.
