    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

Sounds like a GPU issue. That will require professional help of a specialist nature. The GPU has probably been run too hot and unsoldered itself.

My screen is completely black when i turn on my power button, the light comes on and the fan runs but thats it.


This sounds like a motherboard problem, remove main battery and power supply, now press power and hold for 40 seconds, release and install power supply and battery, any change, if not! remove hard drive to see if screen logo will come up, if no! swap out the ram one at a time. If none of this works, it points to motherboard issues.

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.
