    I believe the system files have a corrupton. When you choose last known good configuration, doesn't that solve your problem because it should.



    What i would suggest, when in windows, click on start /run and type the following



    sfc /scannow



    Wait till this finishes, it may ask for your windows cd. Please let me know if this works?

if you can view your desktop and use the menus, go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, if you had enabled this option earlier then you can restore the system to an earlier known date when you system worked.
else you can try installing winXP again, try the option to "Update" when the install option comes on.
else start PC, before the WinXp screen comes on press F8 key, use the Safe Mode to start PC, if you can see everything then shut down and restart in normal mode.

Computer won't work right


Try entering on security mode.

Press F8 when computer starts, so that appears the booting menu.
Try the "safe mode" and revert for example to last recovery, if it's windows XP.

Compaq presario 5000 not booting up right.


Does the Compaq logo appear when you try to start the computer? Try pressing F10 several times after turning on the power. This should start the "recovery console", which will give you some options for restoring Windows. If the recovery console doesn't start up, there is a good possibility that your hard drive or power supply module may be defective. In that case, you will probably need professional assistance to diagnose the problem.

Go into Setup of the BIOS while booting up and check to see if the computer is seeing the hard drive, if it is not replace the hard drive and reload the O.S. if it does see the hard drive try booting in the safe mode or the last known good configuration mode. BPCS

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.
