Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Hi, i have an old compaq presario 5522 with windows 98, it has not been used for ages, when i try to start it up goes through the memory test and stops with just a blinking cursor, i can't start in safe mode or get the BIOS up using the F2 key, the dvd drive does not work it lights up but will not read a disk, i have loaded a diagnostic start up floopy disk and got the start up screen i can't see the D drive, It lists the A floopy drive and hard drive, I have also tried resetting it to the defaults on the start up screen and also checked all the cables and it still will not work,
Base on my experience with the old pc. it is very sensitive.the parts inside has corrusion it might be damage some chipsets.you harddrive can't detect by your system coz it might be damaged.try to get new harddisk just for diagnostic.i know that kind of pc needs startup configuration.it is very complicated.try to changed hdd first.good luck
