"Disc Boot Failure" upon powering up the compaq

Everything has been working okay on this compaq until this morning. Upon powering up a Red and White HP screen pops up that turns into a black screen which reads quite simply: "Disk Boot failure-insert system disc & press enter".

Sporadically, the computer would pop up the red and white screen but after mashing some random buttons we've been able to circumvent it. We haven't been able to get passed this black screen all day now, though. Any ideas what the problem is? If not entirely obvious we're a bit computer inept.

The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

Either:
* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

Blink: 1 - Caps Lock/Num Lock - CPU CPU not functional

Compaq presario doesnt boot upon powering up


boot into the bios or if bios support diagnostics boot into that (typically F1 of F10 on power up) If that is not an option boot off the CD recovery disk and run diagnostics on the HD. Let me know we can take it from there.

Insert your bootable Retail OS disc. Shutdown the computer. Upon powering on the pc. Press and hold F12 to load boot menu. Choose CD/DVD then enter. It will load up set up files. It will give you options to create and delete the partitions. It will be user friendly once you're on this screen.

Hope this helps.
