SOURCE: Compaq computer doesn't boot, no
welcome to fixya
does the computer turn on?
do any or the lights come on or is it just dead?
if compute does not turn on then you might want to make sure ever thing is plug in ...
if ever thing is pluged in and and still does not turn on this might be the power supply has gone bad ...
if computer turn on and nothing happens this could be a bad hard drive or the OS has messed up first try to but in your reboot disk this still nothing happens then the hard drive could be broken
hope this helps you out have a good day

SOURCE: wont boot up
we need to open the case and inspect the cables and cards and memory to make sure nothing has gotten dislodged. heres how to get into the case.
Before Opening the PC
1 Remove any diskette or optical disc (CD or DVD)
from the PC.
2 Disconnect the modem/telephone cable, if present.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of personal
injury from electrical shock or hot
surfaces, disconnect the power cord from
the wall outlet, and allow the internal
system components to cool before
3 Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet
and then from the PC.
4 Disconnect all other attached cables (such as the
keyboard, mouse, and monitor) and all external
Removing the Side Panel
1 Remove the side panel by loosening the screw on
that secures the panel to the PC chassis.
2 Slide the panel back about 1 inch (2.5 cm), and
then lift it off the unit.
WARNING: Beware of sharp edge
Once the side panel is off you will see the computers internal parts. Follow all the cables from the power suppy (top rear of tower) to th devices on the other end and make sure all are COMPLETELY in the sockets. Now do the same with the rest of the ribbon cables.
Now check all add-in CARDS installed into slots on the main boardand make sure they are ALL the way into there slots, sometimes these gets jarred or bound by the case and will work thier way loose.
Last check the RAM, the small rectangular shaped sticks with chips on them installed into similar slots on the main board, these can be up just a tiny bit in thier slots and the computer will freeze.
While you have the case open take note of any burnt smells or apparent swollen parts (capacitors), fans not working (inside & out).
It could also be your power supply going out, ive seen em light up the light on the mainboard , but not have any power to the harddrive and lock a system up.
Go through these things , it might be these , it might be something else, but its good to know your computer is clean and all mechanics in it are working visually from time to time. i can of compressed dust remover spray goes a long way to clean out those dirty fans and heat syncs underneith them.
try this and post again ....
