Hmmm..then can you remove the extra memory, or at least open the case, and reseat it? That's most likely what's causing the problem.

My compaq presario 500 wont boot up?compaq screen comes on then, blank screen,a little cursor in the upper lefthand side


virus is the cause. You are going to have to put in your windows cd and boot from it. Then do a "repair" and hopefully recovery your system if not you are going to have to do a total system wipe.

My PC will not boot up i have a black screen with a flashing cursor in top left hand corner


That cursor is the way in which the BIOS is telling you that no OS was detected = Windows has been completely corrupted and the only thing left for you to do is to reinstall it using the Recovery disk

When I start my Compaq Presario 5070, the logo appears and at the top of the page it says "28 MB OK" and a couple of lines below this the cursor is flashing. I get no response from the computer. What does...


It means you have 28MB of RAM. Apparantly one or more of your RAM modules has failed.

You can remove the RAM and reinstall it, (reseat) and try to start the computer; if that doesn't work, you need new RAM

Does a compaq presario 5000 support flash drives


Yes, it does.

The Compac Presario 5000 series have between 2 and 4 USB 1.1 Ports.
Note here that the ports are version 1.1, which is considerably slower that version 2.0.
USB 1.1: 12 MBits/second
USB 2.0: 480 MBits/second

Aside form the speed, they are both compatible with your computer.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Cursor stuck in middle of screen


If you are using an external mouse, unplug it and see if it will go with the pad.If it works with the pad then its the exteranal mouse.
If you are using the pad you may have to replace the pad or recalibrate it using the pointer device, you can use the tab key to go through to the start menu then use the arrow keys to go to control panel.
Hope this helps
