Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
When i start up my computer the only thing that shows on the screen is the red compaq screen. i try to press F8 upon startup but nothing happens, i have also tried F12 but still nothing, i have tried the recovery cd and when i put it in the drive light blinks and then goes blank and nothing else happens, the screen stays the same.
I work with Compaq computers now and usually your problem points to the hard drive. I know Compaq's will stay on that screen if the hard drive has failed. Try another hard drive would be my suggestion.
Hope this helps.
