Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

Compaq 5000 Series Desktop

Computer would not turn on or off. I replaced the power supply but that's not it. It seems to be the ON/OFF button; when I separated the inside from the outside and pressed it, sometimes the light came on for a split second and the fan would turn, but then all stopped again. Is this fixable, and if so, how?

thx

Hi,
Everythings Fixable. If you locate the power switch Cable To Motherboard. Should be marked ( pwr on Motherboard )
use a hard-drive jumper. small plastic link block. to join the 2 connections on the board itself. ( Jumper )
now plug the mains cable in, if it runs. then you know it,s the switch thats faulty. you can replace this with any similar make break switch. alternatively. if the case has a seperate reset switch. use that instead.

My compaq presario V6000 is stop working out of blue..Don't know why..the power cable is connected but hit the power button,nothing happens..any solution ??


Disconnect all cables from the computer. Press and hold down the power button for about 20 seconds. Reconnect only the power cable and try to turn on the computer on pressing the power button If it turns on then good otherwise, switch the power cable of the computer with the power cable of the monitor as they are the same cable as the power cable could be bad but this rarely happens. Open the computer and see if you see any light on the motherboard, if you do then the power supply is bad. If you dont then both power supply and the motherboard could be bad.

Try draining the power of the computer first. completely shut it down by pressing poweer button for like 5-7 sec. then unplug power supply from the outlet. then press and hold power button for another 15-20 sec. After that, plug back in the power cord, and turn computer on normally.

Not booting, blinking light


4 blinks, 1 second apart is a power supply overload. Have the power supply replaced if you haven't added any additional hardware lately. But also make sure your hard drive isn't bad and pulling an overload of power. it's rare, but I have seem that happen on some western digital hard drives.

Red light flashing on power button


Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.
