Compaq presario 5304 boots to desktop,but nothing is on my desktop

If you are not a screen after the computer boots up.

WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL. - rules

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA

the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have secure dust free connections and are not faulty

if its a 40 pin flat ribbon type it will be the first to fail

make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty

even something as small as a faulty electrical fan and its lead can cause you problems

computers need all power and data to continue through every working device and to have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

make sure your graphics card is securely seated with no dust built up or in the socket

if you remove your graphics check the socket to make sure its dust free

restart your computer then reinstall it this should activate found new hardware wizard

Hope this helps.

How to i replace my hard drive on a presario 5304?

If you replace your hard drive with a new one, you will have to reinstall your operating system onto that drive before you will be able to use your computer normally.

All the HOW-TO INSTRUCTIONS for your computer are found at the following link:

First unplug all the cables from the back of your computer and be sure to take note of where they go so you can replace them when you finish.

Take off the side panel from your computer by removing the 2 screws holding it on the back panel of the computer and pulling the side panel firmly backwards. Be sure to lift up up on the big plastic catch if there is one.

Complete details on HARD DRIVE REMOVAL are available at the Compaq Support website at the following link:

Remove / replace your hard drive and cables as per the above instructions.

Once you get your new hard drive installed, boot your computer and go to your BIOS screen.
Repeatedly press F1 or F2 or F8 or F10 during startup before anything shows up on monitor.

Change your BOOT ORDER so that your CD / DVD Drive is the FIRST BOOT DEVICE.
Save changes and exit.

Now you can insert the OPERATING SYSTEM INSTALL DISK and reboot your computer to install your Operating System.

Good luck and please comment back and rate if this was helpful.

Where is the spark plug and wires located on a 95 Jaguar XJ6 model veh.? I just brought plugs & wires, and I can't seem to find where they go to. Ignition cap is not noticeable...can you help.

Thats funny. How does anyone sell you plug wires for a car that does not use wires? You need to keep out of the cheap auto parts stores. There are coils for each cylinder. The coils are under a cover at the valve covers. Be sure to use the correct spark plug. Denso 5304 or NGK 6962

Does m y copaq presario pc come with a dvd converter

No it does not. You need to download a program from the Internet to convert video files or DVDs.
You did not say what you want to convert the DVD to what video format.
I suggest you do a Google search for DVD video conversion programs.

Would like to know how you access the setup menu or BIOS

I believe that you want to press the F2 button as soon as you turn it on, and keep pressing it until the BIOS setup screen comes up, If F2 doesn't work then try F10

Have a compaq 5304, and it will not boot up, it acts like it then it goes compaq page and continues to redo that until I shut it off

your pc is re-booting, the quickest way to solve that prob. is to restore the pc, (hope you have or made the restore disk.) just insert the cd into the drive and re-boot. follow the on screen instructions to restore your me at and let me know if you got it going.
