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.

Compaq Presario S3190UK wont start and it just beeps


There could be a number of things, from a corrupted BIOS (easy to fix) to a failed motherboard (end of computer) and several in-between. This forum just isn't set up for this kind of in-depth help. I hang out at www.suggest-a-fix.com (free) computer help forum. Sign in and post in the Hardware and Media section, then me or someone else will be along to help out.

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

Ram error or conflict. Remove the ram and fix it back in. Remove other computer and fix them back in. This most times do the trick.

My compac presario PC SR5510F keeps beeping and wont start up? do you know why that would be


When a PC is turned on and then starts beeping, the beeps are actually a message to help troubleshoot. You should listen to the beeps and learn what the pattern is. With that pattern, you may be able to determine the issue.

HP has published a list of these beep codes that are common to many of their system. That information can be found at this link > HP/Compaq Beep Codes

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
