Tap the f8 key as you boot up... it should give you a few choices... boot to safe mode or remove the video card and boot up.... if it boots with no problem it is a compatability issue with the card

Make a note of the number of beeps and whether they are long or short. Put the old video card back in the machine. Go online and do a search for "bios beep codes", check what you wrote down and see what the problem was. It was probably a video error. Perhaps you should install the video drivers for your new card before you install it, that way it might avoid the error on startup.

I AM REPLACEING THE VIDEO CARD NEED TO NO WITCH ONE TP DISABLE BEFORE I REMOVE THE VIDEO CARD TO INSTALL THE NEW ONE


Before disabling the video card, restart the computer and enter the BIOS settings. Often there is also a setting in BIOS on newer boards that allows the user to set either a PCI card or AGP card as the primary video device. Make sure this is set to your video card, which in your case would be PCI-E Automatic. Power down the computer, plug the VGI cable into the new graphics card and turn the computer on. You should be up and running in a matter of seconds. If you don't have video, turn the computer off by holding the power button in until the computer shuts down. Remove the new card and return VGI cable to original location. Restart the computer and use the driver installation disk that came with the new card. Install the drivers. Shut down the computer and try again with the new card.
NOTE: With the BIOS settings to PCI-E Automatic, the computer will check if a card is installed in the PCI-E slot before going to the integrated graphics. Do not remove the drivers for the integrated graphics, you may need to reuse it at a later time.

Hello my compaq computer screen has no image on startup and the caps lock blinks on my computer the version is 2010 Presario CQ56


Hello, in www.hp.com you go into support and drivers and write in search yours computer name and model and you will see a long list of fail codes, many of those codes are in a range of CPU- , Graphics- , memory- and BIOS-failures.

Go to the computer store there you bought your computer and reclaim repairs or replacement, IF you not have open(repairing) or misconfigured(wrong BIOS-file) your computer.

Compaq Presario V6500 has on board graphics card a separate card be installed, are there any options.


You can install a better graphics card in the AGP slot. You most likely need to disable the on board graphics card from the BIOS.
