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.

Trying to reinstall windows XP on Dell Dimension 8300....cant' start up using the CD drive...


Inpect the computers preexisting operating systems to ascertain compartibility to windows XP. Only XP computers would recognise XP operatign systems. Attemptign to install windows XP onto alternate system either windows 98, 2000, mellanuim or Vista XP or 7 is least achieveable unless the old system were erased or new empty storage disk drive were acquired and replaced.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works
