My Compaq Presario Will not even show curser after start up

After start up On Compaq Presario 5WV270 can not even get the curser to show on monitor. From what I can see the fans work and I think cd rom is working but I can not get anything to display on monitor.
The monitor is good.

    You know that the monitor is good becuase you conntected it to another system? Do you have a second montir or LCD that you can connect to the system.



    Does the system past the power on self test? ( you should hear a beep when this happens)

    When the system is booting do the num lock scroll lock and caps lock indicator lights light up and then turn off or are they flashing?



    If the system is not posting then you need to answer the following.

    have you added any hardware to the system?

    have you done any upgrades to the BIOS or Firmware?



    If you have added any hardware to the system, then remove the added hardware and try to boot it up again.





    If the system is posting and another monitor or LCD does not work then you most likely have a video card failure.

Computer comes on but nothing show on monitor u can hear the fan but nothing show on the monitor


  1. Make sure that your monitor cable is plugged into the back of the computer, also sometimes depending on the setup of your computer there can be 2 places to plug you monitor into on the motherboard, if you see another port that looks the same try plugging it into that one and try again.

I got a Compaq Presario SR1903wm .with red blinking light !!! power's up for about 20 seconds then shuts off !! doesnt even start up in Bios !! Dont know what to do !! should i replace the power supply...


check the ram memory ..if this shows up OK (verify it in another computer with the same specifications ) ...than the CPU is to blame ..open it up ..and remove for a few seconds the Bios battery to see if you messed up with the temperature settings ..This will reset to factory settings ..and if there is teh case with temperature limits too low set ..than it will power up after ..if it is the CPU you will have to change it

I am attempting to replace the orignal monitor for a compaq presario with a dell flat screen. how do i change the driver for the monitor


You should not need a driver for the monitor to work, as long as you are using Windows XP and above
as this OS will , or should work with all monitors.
In windows update, you will probebly get offered a driver for this monitor, which you can download and install if you wish

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx


Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer

Compaq Presario stuck in sleep mode


Connect the monitor to some other computer, e.g., a notebook, and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then the monitor is the problem.
If it does not, then your computer is not putting-out any "video" signal, and so the monitor goes to "sleep".

If you have MORE than one VGA-output port on your computer, connect your monitor to the "other" VGA port.

Or, press-and-hold the ON/OFF button on your computer, to force it to completely shutdown.

Lcd screen shows severe blurring when moved,keyboard is locked when used with PS2 port


Could be a number of things...motherboard,hard drive going bad or as simple as a virus/spyware problem. I would formatt & do a clean install of windows to illiminate any virus problems. Then if it still has this problem, look to the motherboard & hard drive.

Compaq Presario 5WV270 Has No Oprating System


installing windows 95 on your pc would require you to have a bootable disk (either a floppy or cd)
insert your bootable disk and go to bios settings --> once you start your desktop pc, press Del key
then go to Boot menu and select your frist boot to floppy or cd (wherever your bootable disk is) then exit and save changes.
once your pc boots from the bootable disk goto C:
then make a directory (let's say Win95) --> C:\md win95
then press enter
then goto that directory which you've just created ---> C;\cd win95
then press enter
then copy your windows 95 disk on this directory
once you finished copy, run setup
be sure to remove your bootable disk the next time your pc restarts or change the boot sequence (again in Bios settings) to your harddrive as first boot
hope this helps

Need to upgrade from Windows ME to Windows XP or Viesta


Yes you can upgrade to windows xp service pack 2/3 without problem. I recommend you update the bios (rompaq) from the revision on the compaq site, and install at least a second
SDRAM 256mb memory module in it first or it will run slow and hang up frequently. I've been running mine on XP for years, still using it now;) (with 384 memory-one 128chip and one 256 chip)
