    I checked the fan it was dusty and I cleaned it out carefully.



    It still freezes although not as frequently.



    BTW when it freezes it also somtimes freezes again when I try to restart my computer.

Well the only thing that i can think about is the fan

specially that there is almost specific time for the computer to freeze (maybe the processor is over heating).

check the Fan and see

let us know what happened with u

    still thinking its the fan my friend



    replace it.



    if u r wondering why i am thinking that its still the fan?

    because its freezing again even if u restart it, so lets try to shut it down and wait for 10 minutes and then turn it on i bet it wont freeze up again.





    try that and if i am right then replace the fan to fix ur issue my friend.



    cheers

Compac computer won't turn on and the power light blinks constantly what can i do to fix this problem


Does it beep? if it does, whats the beep pattern...ie long long short, or short short short

if nothing else, something is causing a short...check the usb ports (real common) the contacts break from wear and short out, have your power supply tested.

Does a compaq presario 5000 support flash drives


Yes, it does.

The Compac Presario 5000 series have between 2 and 4 USB 1.1 Ports.
Note here that the ports are version 1.1, which is considerably slower that version 2.0.
USB 1.1: 12 MBits/second
USB 2.0: 480 MBits/second

Aside form the speed, they are both compatible with your computer.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Compac recovery console


If you had a recovery disk given to you when you bought the pc, then used this to enter the recovery console. I pressume that you want to do a repair, in that you want to restore it to factory conditions?

Simply go into the bios and change the primary boot device to CDROM instead of hard disk. To enter bios, press "DEL" a few times when you first turn the pc on. The default is DEL but i have seen some systems with F2, (it will say what button you need to press to enter setup, look closely on the screen).

If you did not get a recovery disk, then there will be a recovery partition on your hard drive that you can normally access using an "F" button on the keyboard, usually F10,F12, etc (it should flash up briefly when you turn the pc on).

I hope this is of some help to you. Feel free to IM me if you need to ask more questions.

Just bought a compac presario w/ windows vista two days ago. Today the screen is white, nothing else. Any answers?


the operating system has frozen during its boot process, restart the computer, after post screen hit F8 a few times, you will get a sub-menu, chose "last known good configeration" and press enter, hopefully the system will re-boot into vista
get back to me if this does not work

good luck
