Use the following steps to open the case: WARNING: The edges of metal panels can cut skin. Be careful not to slide skin along any interior metal edge of the computer. CAUTION: This product contains components that can be damaged by electrostatic discharge (ESD). To reduce the chance of ESD damage, work over a non-carpeted floor, use a static dissipative work surface (like a conductive foam pad), and wear an ESD wrist strap connected to a grounded surface.

  1. Unplug all cables except for the power. Write down each cable location if you do not already know where it connects.
  2. Unplug the power cable and with the power cable removed press the Power button on the front of the PC.
  3. Remove the screws that attach the side panel to the computer. Do not remove other screws, such as the power supply screws, that are also located on the back of the computer. compaq deskpro - c00371492.jpg
  4. Slide the left-side panel towards the rear of the PC to remove it.
  5. If the front of the drive is blocked by an extra door that is part of the case, remove the front cover. You may have to remove the opposite side panel in order to access the front cover. Press in on the tabs that retain the front cover, there should three to four on each side of the cover and gently pull forward. It helps to have a friend help with this process. Carefully detach any cables that may also be attached to the front cover.

Look at the back of the computer. One side panel removes. (Access Panel) There are two Thumbscrews to loosen on the Access Panel, then the panel is lifted off, or brought straight out.

This isn't a sure fix by any means, but...
You could try unplugging the unit from the wall socket and opening the case. Touch a metal component inside the case for a few seconds to equalize static charge between yourself and your machine.
Next, remove the battery on the motherboard, and wait 5-15 minutes before reinstalling it. What this will accomplish is to reset the computers' BIOS (Basic Input Output System) settings to the defaults for the motherboard, which may let the machine figure out what processor you installed.
If it works, your machine will boot up, and you'll get an error message telling you that there is a checksum error or simply that a BIOS setting is wrong. You'll have to read the message and press the appropriate key to get into BIOS, then reset the date and time.
I hope this helps in some small way- It's rough attempting to set up a machine if you have no visual output to let you know what's going on.
If my solution gets you up and running, please let everyone know by writing a testimonial.

I'm not completely sure on what you are exactly asking here, but I'll do the best I can. If you have the Recovery CD, you need to boot from the CD and run the Recovery. When you go to do the recovery you will have two options, the normal recovery or the destructive recovery. If there is nothing important and everything can be wiped, run a destructive, but if you need everything run the other one. If you do not have a Recovery CD but have a Windows Vista disk that matches the version on your computer (IE: Windows Vista Home 32 bit is on your computer and you have a Windows Vista Home 32 bit disk) and you DO NOT need anything saved, just reinstall Windows. There is a product key for Vista on the sticker attached to your case. If you have neither, then you can probably get a new recovery disk by contacting HP (since they bought out Compaq). If you can not get a new Recovery CD, you will need to go out and buy a new copy of Windows Vista.
