Compaq Presario desktop with blank screen

I have a Compaq Presario desktop (with onboard vga) that when booted nothing appears on the screen. The moniter does not even wake up. I've tried switching moniters, adding a graphics card, and power supply. All with the same result, blank screen. What should I try?

Reset or Clear CMOS because maybe it hang-up some devices that are plug-in to. You can do that by removing the Lithium Battery on the Motherboard. This tips are only technician can do that but to solve your problems like this, this is a tip. And also check your Memory Module.
Hope this might help you, good luck!

Blank screen/white screen


Plug in a monitor to the VGA connector on the side. The white screen usually indicates a failed inverter. By using an external monitor you will cut down the likely causes.

when you turn your screen on does it turn on. if yes then it is a VGA card problem...if you remove the VGA card and use the onboard one, the problem will be the same because their can't be two VGA on one computer and if their is, the onboard VGA is bad and thats why you have another VGA card replacing it, and if that one goes bad also, then you need to buy a new one.

There may be a setting in your BIOS for your video output.

If you were originally using the onboard VGA video output, there may be an option in the BIOS to switch to PCI output.

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.

Trying to locate a service/user manual for the motherboard


Remove the onboard battery out for about 30 minutes, this will cause the bios to go back to the default settings!
Or look on the board for CMOS RAM clear.
Pins 1 & 2 are normal mode and pins 2 & 3 will Clear the BIOS.
Here is some info from Compaq.

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
