Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

My presario 6000 starts, but then it turns off after about 10 sec

There two lights in the front of the computer a green and an orange one. The green one just stays on but the orange is the one that goes off and the monitor of course says no signal. I have checked every connection. The one thing that I can think of: The fan did not seem to be running so well, I could hear it, sounded like it was struggling for a while and then it would stop, the orange light would go off and the screen would go blank. I do believe that the fan could be the issue, since when it is one for the time that it is, both of the drives (DVD and CD) work. Please advise. Oh, one other thing, it did say that windows did not start up properly the last time that I actually got any feedback from it

Looks like your power supply's failed. The green light on the back of your power supply is just a neon light that just confirms that the power lead is OK, it does not relate to the status of the power supply! Try powering it up with another power supply, or replacing the power supply.

Make sure your cables are all firmly connected. Also check the power strip or surge protector. If all is connected well and the pc will still not turn on it looks like the problem is the power supply unit, which can be replaced for around $20. I hope this works :).

Computer monitor won't tur on


check the connector to the pc from the monitor. it may have come loose. if you have a mouse, try moving it and see if the light on the monitor turns to green. it is possible the video has failed.
