Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Ok. so my friend had asked to borrow my power button, and after i had taken it out my mom said he cant , and to put it back in. so me nor my friend have small enough fingers to replace the wires that we disconnected to get the power button out. a few trys later i got them all hooked up, but when i turn on my computer my monitor doesnt connect to the tower and i get a black screen. realizing some wires must be messed up, i am on my laptob trying to figure out how to re setup my wires correctly. any help would be more then generous.
I would recheck to make sure all your PCI cards are well seated in thier slots and recheck your monitor cable connection to the tower. If after this you still have the same problem, verify you have made the correct connections with the cable(s) that were unplugged when you removed the power switch. Also, look to make sure no pins are bent when you replaced the connections. Good luck.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it
back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE
MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look
different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is
normal. If it works ok in safe mode then the monitor is ok and we might have an issue with a setting.
Try connecting another monitor to your computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor works ok, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does the same thing as your original monitor then the issue is with the computer (possibly the video card).
