Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Ok i went on vacation left my pc on (Compaq Presario) model#163874-003.
Came home and it was running still but nothing on the screen, so bought a new monitor turned it off then back on and it did not boot up or even say anything on the screen, after i turned it on all it does is sounds like it is trying to boot and then stops but the fans keep running.
Hi mikebal26 this is nichu,ok let me make you clear that your system is not booting because your cpu is not recognising some of the hardware it may be either your hdd,ram or any other.
if your system does not boot it has nothing to do with your monitor and fans.fans keep rotating whenever you switch on your pc.check inside the cpu especially with your ram .
so first when you turn on the system press delete to check it in the bios settings , in that check bootable addins and in the bootable devices set
1st priority to-cd rom,
2nd priority to hard disc drive,
3rd to priority to floppy drive.
.save the above settings and then boot this will turn on your system .
this will solve your problem
take care & have a nice day.
