    I have the same problem.  I purchased my computer from a local thrift store.  I plugged it in at the store to make sure it worked and it came on just fine.  When I got it home, and plugged it up to a monitor, I could not get any thing to display on the monitor.  After unplugging and replugging the power source back into the computer, it finally came on and I went in to clean up a lot of pictures and video clips.  Came back in this morning and wham... no view on the monitor.  Any suggestions?




    Thanks

It sounds like you are having startup issues even though you hear it coming on. Sometimes when u have viruses and such you see major hardware inconsistence. My advice download this Free home edition anti-virus AVAST, once you install it will automatically prompt you to do a Boot time scan, which will scan your entire computer for infections at the start-up. That should most likely fix your problem.

make sure to let me know

Compaq presario 56000cl won't boot up / red light flashing in the back.


When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files.
Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.

Compaq Presario keeps rebooting


If you get a power supply for a Compaq it needs to be a special power supply that will fit into the compaq case. There are no uninteruptable power supplies that install inside the case. There are always several compaq power supplies on sale on Ebay with a Buy it Now option

My Compaq desktop computer has just recently started rebooting itself. I just added some RAM but its fairly easy to do so I don't feel I messed anything up installing it... Ideas?


Yeah dude, I had the same problem with my DELL. If you install more ram, sometimes (even though it has the slots) the computer can't handle it. Did you try removing the ram you added? It may work. Other thing is that you may have loose cables from the power supply.

Unplug power cable from of the PC. Then hold power button in for 30 seconds, this will drain the capacitors, then plug back in the power cable see if this helps, if not could power supply, or video card.

Wont start up


my wife has a presario that had a similar problem - it would boot up, then immediately shut down. I took off the side plate and blew off some of the dust inside. that worked for a couple of days then the symptoms returned. I took it apart again but this time I removed the cpu fan and the cpu heat sink. I cleaned all the **** off the fan and the heat sink and replaced it. this time it stayed on. I checked out the power supply. compaq installed a very cheap power supply - only 250 watts. a replacement power supply for the same machine but with an output of 300 watts is available. as soon as I can scrape up the change, I'm gonna change the PS
