Compaq presario 5000 desk top

For some reason my display settings have gone out and I can't seem to fix them the normal way one would attempt. When I do try to correct the problem and click apply the screen goes blank except for one blinking light on the upper right side then it stays that way until I ctrl alt delete
any suggestions to help me fix this problem would be appretiated.

You should try to Disk Clean up your hard drive, Defragment your Disk, Check your disk for any bad sectors and clear all cookies and temp files from your browser. Use either Ashampoo WinOptimizer, Advance Windows Care or Tune Up Utilities as an optimization software to optimize your system.

PC DO NOT BOOT


It seems that you don't have any Operating System installed. You need some bootable OS setup disk, and change BIOS settings to boot you PC from CD. Insert disk and restart PC, then follow onscreen instructions to setup OS.

No you can't.

After your OS CD inserted it will perform a routine to see which it is your brand machine, if your machine is not a Dell the OS installation will be aborted.

You can try using a Generic OS CD

Yes, the CMOS battery is replaceable, and easily so. Just remove the old one, go down to an electronics shop, get a similar battery and replace it.
Unfortunately, we just provide online help, and cannot physically come there and do this for you.
Here are two online tutorials that explain the procedure in detail:

Hope that helps! And please dont forget to rate this solution as a Fixya if it helped you in any way.
