Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
My computer 'A Compaq Presario 5000 Series Desktop' hangs up any time. It is very variable. If it has a mood to work it works for hours without any issue but if it doesn't have the modd to work it hangs up at the start up screen also. It is a Pentium -3 processor speed -733 I had 2 RAM sticks both 128mbps@PC133 I have run the Quick Restore CD that came along with it and restored but it is still doing the same. I have changed the fan. I have added an additional fan. The processor is not heating up. I have checked and replaced the RAM. Most probably it has to do something with the motherboard or the cylinders on the motherboard. I have windows 98 on it as of now and it hangs variable at any time. Mostly when I give some load. I have formated the drives and reinstalled OS I have reinstalled 98, 2000 and XP XP gives the most problem as it hangs very soon on XP When ever I use the keyboard and scroll through the start menu. Please advise what needs to be done. I am a computer engineer myself and I rate my knowledge very higly on computers and hardware. Please advise and help.
Hi Simran, I was searching for a solution to a identical problem of my COMPAQ PRESARIO DESKTOP which you have mentioned. It stops abruptly. I have changed the MOUSE, RAM but it is still persisting. I have done all the stuff that you have done. If you have got any solution to the problem please mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank You Sridhar V

I would maybe look at any devices you have connected as the hanging may well be a corrupt driver or faulty hardware, but as always a process of illimination is required. i would suspect either a processor overheating or motherboard problem, as you have changed the ram and you mention that under load it happens frequently.
