Are you sure that the screen is working?
if yes unplug everything (screen, keyb., mouse..)and try to turn it on. If your ear an alarm then it's one of your peripheral,.
when not the power supply, the motherboard or the Microprocessor is dead.
you can easily check the power supply with a millimeter (open the box, take the power plug from the DVD and measure if you have +5V and +15 V)
For the others..only replacement can solve the problem.
cheers

Just because it came with 7 doesn't mean you couldn't go backwards and install XP.... or you could create a 2nd partition and dual boot. You'll get a faster and more reliable machine to use your new tool with.

I have a COMPAQ, Presario SR1055CL Desktop, that will not bootup


Hi....If the computer will not start and you hear no fans or other electrical sounds chances are the power supply has failed. If you had an electrical storm that caused the blackout and did not have a surge protector power strip it could be much worse. Check the power supply first. You can google for help in testing that supply. Good Luck Hank

Black Screen Compaq Presario


Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

NO SCREEN, FROZEN KEYS


Take out all peripherals connected to computer including AC adapter.
Take out battery.
Press and hold power button for several seconds with all power sources removed. This drains residual power from the system and may correct many problems.
Connect the AC adapter to wall, then computer. Press the power button to start the notebook PC.

This worked for me! There is more info at http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=110&prodSeriesId=235992&prodTypeId=321957&prodSeriesId=235992&objectID=c00372748

If the link doesn't help it is at HP website, Troubleshooting, I looked at Compaq Presario v3000 series, and went to boot-up problems...it was pretty far down the page under the heading Other Problems. There is more info if the first part (above) that you do does not work. Hope this is helpful to others!

Did you already try using last know good configuration?
When your computer boots instead of f10 press F8. Then select last known good configuration and enter.

if it didn't work try booting up the computer without the memory see if it will have the same problem.

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
