My Compaq Presario S5000 will not boot, it powers up but sends nothing to the monitor, and will not stop seeking from the HDD as it should (should stop HDD activity a couple of seconds into the boot).

Laptop will not boot up


What displays on the monitor? Have you tried pushing escape button to get into bios settings and be sure it is set up to look for the HDD 1st? Also is there a CD or DVD in the drive? If so, remove that and try again.

I have a Compaq CQ50-210. Problem with the HP COMPAQ Presario CQ50-210US NoteBook AMD Athlon X2 QL-62 15.4' Wide XGA 2GB Memory 160GB HDD... I have a Compaq CQ50-210. When I try to boot it, the screen...


Power up the external monitor first and then boot up the laptop, the video info will automatically divert to the external monitor.
If you do not see a Windows image on the external monitor then it is definitely a motherboard issue, because the video card is built in on the motherboard.
The Video card uses shared RAM (part of the RAM module/s ), try re-seating the RAM modules, also test the RAM modules.
You can test the hard drive by removing the hard drive and connecting it to an USB hard drive adapter, then connect the adapter into a working computer's USB port. If the hard drive is OK, this computer will see it as an external storage device and you can open the various folders and files on the hard drive.

Black Screen Compaq Presario


Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

Compaq Presario C304NR STOPS LOADING AT COMPAQ LOGO


It sounds like the hdd has failed. When you try to boot can you hear the hdd attempting to spin up? Best solution if everything else checked out would be to replace the hdd. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Can't reboot Compaq/Presario desktop, (power supply is working)


If the system recovery disk doesn't work it usually mans that the hard drive is bad. I would change the hard drive and use the system recovery disk on it after replacement.

Will not boot but runs and will not talk to monitor


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
.


bye,
take care & have a nice day.

My laptop powers on but won't boot, fans start and nothing happens?


I just had same problem with 2 laptops. Power light came on and fan ran a few secs but nothing else. I replaced motherboard and CPU in one. The other just had to reseat CPU and it works like a charm. I thought it was AC adapter or LCD but it just had to be reseated. I would try that before I bought anything.

Laptop Boot Problem


It seems all Compaq laptops are infected by this problem. If you are sure that the AC port and the AC adapter is working? Can you hear the laptop trying to boot? ..e.g. Hard Drive spinning up, Floppy Disk Drive noise, etc.. if so ...Try hooking up a external monitor.. Does it smell like anything has burnt? (Call for service) Is there anything that sounds loose when you shake it? (Call for service or you can to open it?) Try booting your laptop from a bootable floppy if you have one. Or use Compaq's Recovery CD. But I doubt if you use recovery CD, you might lose data on your HDD. Which O.S. are you using? The Boot-up mechanism checks all the hardware before starting Windows. Some times floppy drive doesn't allow the laptop to boot further by either not responding or sending wrong signal.
