Compaq Presario 5000 won't turn on

Hi, I have a Compaq Presario in the 5000 series and every time I try to turn it's power light goes solid green and the sounds it makes sound like it's going through the motions, but nothing happens. When I would turn it on before, the light would flash red before going to green. I've tested the monitor and switched it around a few times just to make sure, but nothing seems to be working. It's an old cpu, and we've since replaced it (this started happening 3 or 4 years ago) but I'd love to get it up and running again just to see if I could get some old files and programs off of there. It's a Model 5WV271, it ran WindowsME when it was working. Is there any magic words I can say to get this running again?

Hi,
The machine is getting the power but no display.This seems a RAM or motherboard issue.
1.Press and release NUM Lock after turning on and if it is responding this is a RAM issue and if not then the mainboard issue but before all refix the RAM once.
Thank You.

Green light flashing on compaq presario - computer will not turn on


You may have a 12V ATX line (6 wires) that needs to be connected to the mobo in addition to the main power (about 20 wires). Make sure they are both connected - try again.
Remove 1 stick of memory - try again.
Swap the stick you removed with the other stick and try again.
Unplug the power switch wires from the header on the mobo - try again - make sure you write down where each wire goes. Try again.
Swap the power supply with another ATX to see if it is the power supply (PS fail more than mobos due to dust buildup).

Not booting, blinking light


4 blinks, 1 second apart is a power supply overload. Have the power supply replaced if you haven't added any additional hardware lately. But also make sure your hard drive isn't bad and pulling an overload of power. it's rare, but I have seem that happen on some western digital hard drives.
