Question about PC Desktops
My Compaq Presario v5000 won't turn on. There's an LED light at the front of the computer that shows that it's got power but nothing!
Does "Fn + F4" do anything?

The same thing happened to my Compaq Pc. I turned it off. Then the next morning, I tried to turn it back on, but it wouldn't. I pulled out all the cables/wires/power supply. I also re-plugged them in. I tried holding the On switch, but nothing. Would you pelase help?

If the laptop posts: (power on self test) and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short ,do the following:
if you have a bootable anti virus disc use it to check for any viruses , if not
try a recovery disc,
both will try to access the hard drive.
if they do not work,(nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.
laptop does not post:
remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate where the ram lives
remove the memory sticks, clean the gold edges with a pencil eraser both sides and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
swap them around if you have more than one,
if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible, or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may or may not do that for you)
if you can establish that the ram is ok, and anti virus and recovery disc's do not work,then it is most likely, the motherboard has failed .
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.
