Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I have a compaq presario 5000 desktop that is about 7 years old. I restarted and the screen went blank. I came back to it and the power button was blinking. I turned it off, then back on again and it takes me to the compaq screen with two f button options. (f10-setup) or (f12-network service boot) after about 30 seconds the screen goes blank again. if i hit f10 it takes me to the setup options but if i hit f12 the screen goes blank again. Any ideas?
Disconnect all devices from the power supply EXCEPT the motherboard
Remove any extra cards including video etc.(plug monitor into the onboard)
If you hear any beeps these can indictate where the fault is.
either of these sites below will help you further with that

Power up the pc and see if the fans are working.
If not then double check the power connections to the board.
If you still have no fans it is time to suspect the power supply as the probable cause.
If the fans worked then you should have gotten a display which told you there was an error and offering you a chance to go into the BIOS. ignore it and shut down the PC.
Now connect one drive only and boot again.
Repeat that until you identify the component that is giving you a problem.
Once you find the problem then remove or disconnect and carry on with the rest to see if another component might also cause a problem
If there is only one problem device then you may want to investigate that device further, Unless you don't mind replacing it
