Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

Computer beeps when first turning on

I was given a Compaq Presario computer last week for my birthday and when I start the computer it beeps one long beep and then two continuous beeps. I did what the online help suggested and disconnected the mouse and keyboard and sure enough, the computer starts without beeping. I need to find out if I can get replacement mouse and keyboard since it was part of a package deal on sale for $559 last week.

If your computer is still under warranty, the company should replace them. If not, you can buy them really cheap.

Or you could just return the computer. This is what I would do, because it might not be the mouse/keyboard that is causing this. It could be that you just have a bad motherboard.

We have a Compaq Presario PC and we are having a problem turning it on because the last time it was used, the error pattern showed up and we had to reboot it. After we shut it down we had to start it up...


When computer is booting up, tap your function key F8 then try Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked) or Safe Mode. If still doesn't work, you have format your computer. But before to format your computer don't forget to save or back up your data or documents. Good Day

My compaq presario acts like it wants to come on and then the screen goes black. Help


Most of the time, when a computer begins to "start", but than shuts its-self off, the processor fan has failed. But, it could be the hard drive, or RAM. If the computer makes some beeping noises when it starts up, those can be the codes you need to help decide what exactly is wrong. Next time you start the computer, listen for the beep codes. If you get more than one short beep, than make a note how many, and how long the beeps were. Than you need to get online, and search out their meaning. Just type in computer beep codes.

MOTHERBOARD BEEPING


Beep codes are used by motherboards to indicate what error could cause the system to malfuntion. Try opening this link. It contains all of the beep codes of hp motherboards. There is also a guide here on how to test your computer.
