First hi this is my first post.
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 read Press <F1> to Resume <F10> to Setup, I press F1 or F10 and nothing happens it wont boot up nothing screen just hangs there, next I Reboot the computer and as it's booting repeatedly tap the F8 key to get to the Safe Mode menu and nothing back to Press <F1> to Resume <F10> 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 , when I reboot it it gos to the same Press <F1> to Resume <F10> to Setup.
If you have any suggestions please tell me how to fix this, Thank You.

Have you looked at the Compaq documentation for troubleshooting situations when your system won't boot?

You might take a look at http://www.computer-firstaid.com/bios2.html

I suppose that two beeps could indicate a failing CMOS battery...that would be my not-so-wild guess.
