Does it run through the memory test, or begin to post?
Try pressing F8 repeatedly at startup to enter the OS options page and if you boot that far, choose last known good configuration. Otherwise, you may have some kind of hardware or driver conflict, a failing hard drive or even a failing power supply, despite the lights and fans. Finally it could be the result of malware installed on the system.
Here's a great article for general startup troubleshooting.
Here's a link to your system's support page and Here's HP's version for xp.
Here's a MS startup troubleshooter for xp.
Here's a link to my recommended malware removal protocols if you get it booted and that seems like the direction to go.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

ONLY GETTING LIGHTS AND FAN TO COME ON


if there is no "beeps" probably PSU or MBbut try next... disconect RAM, HDD, optical drive and any PCI devices you have... if here is still no beeps it is what I said, PSU or MB. if it starts beeping put RAM in, if there is no beeping and it wont start then you have a bad RAM. ofcourse anythig you change (disconecting/connecting any PC device, PC must be OFF)

I have a Compaq Presario S4000V that is giving me repeating long beeps when I turn it on. The beep may go 10 or 20 seconds and then pause for about 5 seconds and then do the same thing again.


Hello
Usually this kind of beep code is an indication of a cpu or processor heat problem.
Make sure the processor fan is running by opening up the case and looking at it.

Also try claening out the inside of the pc,you can use a can of compressed air and a vacum cleaner for this.If the processor fan is not working get a new one,it should always be on when the pc is on.

Compaq Presario S3040SE PC Desktop was working fine. when i turned it on next day screen says operating system not found. restart. now monitor wont kick on and hard drive light doesnt come on. only power...


Normaly when you get the error that the operating system cant be found, it is a indication that the hardrive has either gone bad, or somehow some of the system files got deleted. I would say though since the hard drive light wont come on it could be the hardrive has shut down completely. But you still should see the company image of your computer when you start it up, (the bios screen)

A bad hardrive would be my first guess, 2nd problem if its not your harddrive would be a new power supply.

My sons compaq presario cq50 wont run


Hi,

I could well be wrong, but my gut feeling is that your laptop is having memory issues. Start by accessing the memory and (carefully) removing it from its seating. Give it a quick check for dirt / dust etc and then re-seat it. If you have multiple memory modules, try swapping them round. Replace all covers and then restart the computer. Hopefully it's as simple as that. If not, you may need new memory, or alternatively the beep codes for your laptop refer to something different.

If you can get some Compaq support online, check that out for a dagnosis of the beep codes. That might point you in the right direction, assuming the above attempted solution is of no use.
