Start wont load window, just flahing light on screen. may have got virus

Remove hard drive, find out make and model of hard drive. Go to hard drive manufacturer's website and download testing software (if you have another computer with internet access). Should be a bootable ISO file. Burn the boot cd and run it on the host computer after reinstalling the hard drive. Sounds like a bad hard drive in my opinion.

Ok well try actually turning off the computer not using the hardboot button but the wires are connected to a power strip or surge protector right? Well on those there is a switch which you can press and it stops any electricity from flowing into your computer which shuts down your comp. Also many people don't know but when you "turn of your computer" it's really on standby because when you press that button it is waiting for that to be pressed. The only way to fully shut down your computer is to stop all electricity from flowing to the computer. Hope that helped :)

Can you turn the hard drive of at night when not in use and not loose any data?

I would recommend you put your PC on standby that way it shuts off your computer but of course once you move the mouse it wakes up again. Or you can choose to hibernate so it saves everything your doing to your hard drive and once you turn your PC on it will restore everything you were doing from the hard drive. But putting your PC on stand by you shouldn't lose any work.

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.

Computer hard drive?

Hi your problem sounds more like a virus or something similar before you buy new hard drive try downloading spybot search and destroy.
When i had similar problems on friends comp using spybot solved the problem it is a free virus and spyware remover programme just type in a search engine spybot search and destroy
then download it then run it it will then scan everything on your hard drive and this should then list all viruses and spyware and allow you to remove them give it a try let me know how you get on.
As for the price of new hd it all depends on the size speed etc but could cost from $80 upto $250 you can spend a lot of money depending on size of mem hope this is some help to you

She won't run

do you still have your restore CD? try to fresh restore it and updates everything on that unit again. Often online gamers send you malicious script that crashes your system.
