Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

Desktop won't boot up

When I turn on the computer the only screen that shows up is the Compaq screen from the begining. It does not go further than that. The Keyboard does not lite the leds of the caps lock ect. I would like to boot a Windows XP CD to format the hard drive and reinstall windows. The problem is I can't get the computer to detect my keyboard nor start the booting process.
Thanks for the help!

It has to be your hardware problem must be your keyboard connection or hard disk failure

    I kinda have a feeling that it's a software problem just because y have used different keyboard with different types of connections (USB and the other older port i think it's called PS/2) but there is still no booting. The computer does not show any type of action just the compaq logo with a blinking underscore at the top right corner of the screen. Im gonna clone the hard drive from a working pc to see it can boot. Thankks for your help VgNize!

Computer comes on, shows a blue screen, and restarts on it's own.


Try to boot into Safe Mode.

If you're able to, let me know and we'll go from there.

<windows root>\system32\hal.dll is corrupt or missing


See if you can get into safe mode. If you can't then your system files are corrupted and you'll have to restore your computer back to factory defaults.

I believe on your compaq presario they have a built in factory restore and its either accessed by the F10 or F11 key when you first turn on the computer. You'll know when you first turn on the computer at the compaq logo screen.

Let me know if I can help you further.

Hp compaq presario v3000 is not loding the OS, show an error


  • as you boot the computer, start tapping the F8 keys
  • From the boot menu, select Safe Mode
If this seems to work, you can try restoring the computer to an earlier point from Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.
If Safe Mode also fails to load, you would have to check your disk for errors or you may have to install XP all over again.
Please get back, if you need any further help.

Compaq notebook won't boot up


Hi

When you boot the computer back up go into Safe Mode and check to see if you can roll the computer back to the point before you installed the software.

If so this should work. If it works then run a virus scan, a defrag of the hard drive and cleans the temp files.

OR

You can do a diagnostic startup and uninstall Onecare. So once that it is uninstall ed it should be smooth sailing.

Here is a link for some startup / diagnostic software you could try after booting.

I hope this helps

Shut down the computer. Turn it on and during the boot process hit on F8 to get into Advanced boot option (if it skips try again after restart the computer), You will see the options. Choose "Last Known Good Configuration" and enter. It will probably will resolve the issue. If issue persist please post for further assistance.

Good Luck

Can not get to my desktop.... HELP


Go into Setup of the BIOS while booting up and check to see if the computer is seeing the hard drive, if it is not replace the hard drive and reload the O.S. if it does see the hard drive try booting in the safe mode or the last known good configuration mode. BPCS
