Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a problem with a Compaq Presario 6000 that has not had any changes made to it since new. When trying to start it. it will began to start up and then shut down after approximately 3 seconds. It had the problem several weeks ago but finally started after repeated trys. Now it will not get past the 3 second time on start up. The machine has not had any problem until this started. Any info would be appreciated.

When you do get it to boot I would run CHKDSK/F and let the utility try and fix the errors.

Hello,Help,my Compaq Presario 6000 won't boot, turns -on starts it's POSTthen massage...WINDONS DID NOT START SUCCESSFULLY RECENT HARDWARE ,SOFTWARE CHANGE. no changes made. the screen goes black...


Hi Chas,

sounds like you have a piece of hardware that has a bad driver. If you connected something recently, try disconnecting it and then start your computer. If it starts, then you will need to find the correct driver for it before you attempt to hook it back up again.

If that does not solve the problem, try unhooking all hardware, except for the hard drive with the operating system on it. If it starts normally, then you can turn your PC off and hook up one piece of hardware... start the PC... turn it off again... hook up another... start the PC... etc. until you find the hardware that is causing the problem.

If it does not start with only the operating system hard drive attached... then, the hard drive may be defect. You can take it out and put it in a USB casing and hook it up per USB to another PC... if you see the data on it, it should be ok (just in case, this would be a good time to backup any data on it that you may need). If you do not see the hard drive in Windows explorer then it is probably defect and you will need to purchase a new one.

Hope that helps

Tower compaq presario 6000 will not power up


after reading your query i can understand that there may be no issue with the power supply,
can u hear any kind of long beep? if yes try cleaning the ram, if this also doesnt help then try changing the ram.
if this is not helpful please check the cmos battery,
if battery is ok, then there may be a problem with your motherboard of Processor.

The best way to obtain drivers for your Presario is to go to http://www.hp.com and select the auto-detect feature which will automatically detect your computer, ask you for the operating system, Windows XP or Vista and you will be presented with a list of the drivers which will be automatically installed for you. Alternatively you can use this link to manual choose the LAN drivers listed here:http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareList?os=228&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us〈=en&product=434626 If you need further assistance please repost.
