Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I'm trying to fix my C P 5000. It powers up but I have no comminication to either of my two monitors, key board, or mouse. The CD drive runs, the hard drive lights up after start up but does not sound like it's booting up.
This pc gets quite good reviews, here is a link to some more information on your machine which may of general help : http://pcworld.about.com/news/Aug212001id57667.htm
Regarding the problem... your machine will not boot up properly unless it handshakes with the mouse and keyboard, has it ever worked ? ( forgive the obvious question ) and if so, what was the last thing you successfully did on it ? has the mouse or keyboard been changed to a different type ie from USB to ps2 ?..Could be malware, but sounds more like a driver problem....the best way to check is : right click on "my computer"..select "properties"...click on "hardware" tab, then click "device manager" button....if there is a problem with keyboard and/or mouse, there will be a yellow exclamation mark, if this is the case, you will need to re-install the proper driver from the installation disk...right clicking on the device in that list will bring up help options and update driver option..........let us know how it goes ?

I have had a lot of success with this type of problem by unplugging the power cord, then holding the computer power switch in for about 5 seconds, plugging the power cord back in and powering the system on.
