Try using your windows cd to boot up the computer and if that does not work then you may need to reset the bios. Inside the case if it is desktop there is a way to reset the the bios. There is a jumper that needs to be switch then switched back that will reset the bios. If this does not work may need to get a new hard drive. The MBR ( Master Boot Record) may have been corrupted.

How to reset the bios system in compaq computer.

i dont know which compaq system you had, but generally there are two ways to reset bios
1. short the bios reset jumper near battery on motherboard for a while and place it back, it will reset the bios. 2. take out the battery from motherboard for some time and put it back to motherboard it will also reset the bios
if there is no password problem then just load bios default from the bios menu.

Have an hp compaq how can i reset the bios password

Usually opening the case and removing the bios battery for 20-30 seconds will clear the password. it's on the motherboard, looks like a watch battery and has a clip on one side holding it in place.
a lot easier than trying to track down the bios reset jumper..

PC turns on, but would not boot up at all

there's a good chance you've "bricked" the computer by damaging the bios. You don't smell burning because it never got burned - but the data on it is still corrupted.

Look for a jumper on the motherboard called "CLR_CMOS". If you find it, unplug everything, and move the jumper to cover those pins, wait 30 seconds, then put the jumper back. That is a full cmos reset and it's the only thing you can try.

If that doesn't work, u nfortunately you'll have to replace the mobo to fix it, and if you're going to do that, you might as well get a new computer
