Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
If your PC has started HDD flashing and there is power to the monitor this means that the video card has not told the monitor to display, its kind of like in standby you can get this if the onboard VGA is faulty.
If you have another basic VGA card insert this into a spare PCI slot while the PC is off and plug the monitor into this instead if this works your monitor is fine and looks like your VGA on the mobo is trashed, just buy decent 512MB PCI or AGP video card and use this setup instead.
Its also good idea to disable the on board VGA in the BIOS.
