Compaq presario 56000cl won't boot up / red light flashing in the back.


When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files.
Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.

Hold down the ON/OFF button for 10 seconds, to see if that makes anything happen.

The disk-drive could be in a "cage" -- remove the screws holding the cage in place, and the whole cage can be removed. Then, unscrew the disk-drive from its cage.

Hi,
refer to the users manual, or download if possible.
Yellow/Orange could mean that the computer is In Hibernate/Sleep Mode et,c. usually restored by pressing certain keyboard keys Or pressing and holding the power on button For 4 seconds or more.
Other Possibility ( graphics/VGA driver or device, Corrupt Or missing )
You could change the graphics card, Or remove the motherboards Cmos Battery, for 10 seconds, which will restore the Computers Bios, default settings.

Compaq presario sr215onx wont boot up


Go to bootdisk.com and download boot files for your operating system (ex. Windows XP). There are software for floppy disk which is the easier way to get your boot files. If you do not have a floopy you will have to get the CD files, there you have all the instructions how to get the CD. Once you get the files, insert the floopy or the CD and reboot your computer. The filse should be installed automatically, if not do it manually and reboot computer again.

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
