Restarting the Operating System? Or restarting the Computer?
If it is the Operating System, try safe mode, do a few Virus scans.
If it is BIOS, you board may of fried, but if your PC is out of warrenty you can unscrew the tower and take the watch battrie out, wait a couple of hours maybe a day for thr BIOS to reset and try again. If not replace the RAM, they're many thing that could mean but they're the basic's.

I bought a new hardrive for my m2000 and when i load it it is giving me a "media test failure" response..... how do i load it properly?


If you bought a new hard drive (meaning the internal hard disk), it won't have anything on it. If you just install it and try booting your computer, there won't be an operating system to load. The BIOS (the operating system built into the motherboard) is set up to try loading the operating from connected devices in a certain order. Usually it tries the optical drive first, then the hard drive, and finally it tries to boot over a network connection. The media test failure message means it tried that last resort and still didn't find an operating system, and it's telling you that maybe you have a bad network cable.

You'll need to reinstall your operating system and applications so that the computer will start normally. If your computer came with a restore disc set, or you made a set yourself, you'd use those. If you don't have restore discs, you can do a fresh installation of Windows from CD. You need to find the disc for the version that came installed on your computer, since you'll need to use the product key from the sticker on the bottom. Drivers and utility programs you can download from Compaq's (HP, actually) support and drivers website.

Once you've got a bootable Windows system on the new drive, you won't get that strange message any more.

Compaq presario sr1303wm not powering up


Try another power cord first to be sure; if that doesn't works, then replace the power supply.

Still wont boot


Disk boot failure is usually a sign that your operating system has become corrupt in some way.
If you've got your Windows disc, put that in the CD rom, then boot the computer.
There's a "repair" option that you can select, instead of re-installed Windows.
That *should* fix the problem.
It's also (thought unlikely) possible that your hard drive has died completely.
