Compaq Presario v5000 freezes on startup

I have a Compaq Presario v5000. It use to freeze while in use with the OS. It progressively got worse till it started doing it on start-up before any OS would start loading. The first time of turning it on for the day you'd get the furthest but after restarting it would freeze quicker. Now it just freezes just before, during, and just after the compaq logo appears on the screen. Not a chance for the OS to start. I've tried different RAM and HD to no avail. I've read that it could be the driver for the CPU (AMD Turion) but the driver I downloaded is an exe and I won't have a chance to execute. Any ideas, please!

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the quick response.

    I tried to start up the machine and it doesn't even take me to the compaq logo screen anymore. I've been trying to boot Linux from a cd. I had got as far as selecting Memtest once that was on the Ubuntu disk and once in I had no problems. But I haven't been able to get back in.

    I don't care for the info on the machine. I was actually trying to install Linux before it got this bad but I was one boot to late.

    At this point I can't get it to even show the Compaq logo on start up. I think that it will be the mb and I'm taking it to have it looked at.

    Thanks,

If you aren't worried about what you have on the hard drive or if you have been diligent and backed everything up i would say the easiest fix is to re-format and re-install your operating system from scratch.This would re-set everything to default and in turn re-set the bios .
If your not up for that and you can get into the bios by either a F1,F2 or delete while starting up , then you could just try re-setting everything back to factory settings or default ....which ever option it gives you .... If this doesn't , any of the afore mentioned help, then my next thought would be the cpu or motherboard has the issues. good luck

Can't access laptop computer in safe mode, keyboard freeze up


Try booting your system from a LIVE cd like linux, a verson of Hiren's tools, or the UBCD (ultimate boot disc for windows). If your keyboard still freezes with the alternate OS, you may have a hardware malfunction.

Freeze after boot up


hmm... given that it boots up fine into safe mode, i think there's a strong possibility that the problem is virus or spyware related.

i would see if you can run a virus scan with some good programs, check your startup processes to see if you find anything out of the ordinary, etc.

if you do find something or also think its a virus, reloading windows will always take care of that, and definitely speed up your system.

hope this helps
