Compaq Presario 5000 wont boot up

When switched on the monitor says "no signal" and the PC just emits a beep every 4 seconds. The green power light remains on. the only way to de power the unit is to switch off at mains.

I used to be able to get around this by turning off at mains and leaving for half an hour. Now this doesnt work.

Check the memory, remove and reseat the memory. If that does not work then try and replace the BIOS battery, again if that does not work then it is time for a new motherboard. Do the fans turn on?

When I attempt to boot the unit, no signal is sent to the monitor or keyboard, nor does the green light next to the power button turn on. The amber light does not, either. The fan will run at high power...


I had the same problem with my computer and the Compaq-HP techs told me to pull the ram out and then put it back in. They called it reseating the ram.
This fixed the problem i had. Try this and good luck.

Not booting, blinking light


4 blinks, 1 second apart is a power supply overload. Have the power supply replaced if you haven't added any additional hardware lately. But also make sure your hard drive isn't bad and pulling an overload of power. it's rare, but I have seem that happen on some western digital hard drives.

Compaq Presario 5000 won't turn on


hi,
The machine is getting the power but no display.This seems a RAM or motherboard issue.
1.Press and release NUM Lock after turning on and if it is responding this is a RAM issue and if not then the mainboard issue but before all refix the RAM once.
Thank You.

Do you have a windows XP cd?
If so you can try booting from the cd and running recovery console.
from recovery console type chkdsk -r
This should repair any bad sectors on your drive, allowing the drive to boot

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
