Compaq presario 5000 startup problem

I haven't used my Presario 5000 for "like" 6 months. But I just tried to boot it up and had the following problems. My monitor didn't show anything, but I tried connecting it to another source and it showed, so I ruled that out. When I turn on the power button on the computer, the keyboard lights up (blinks) then is gone. Power on light on the tower stays on, but screen is blank, fan is running, cd is functioning. All ower areas seen to work. But can't see anything on screen and keyboard doesn't register. Any ideas? Bad motherboard? Bad graphic card?

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.

Problems with booting a Compaq presario cq 60 - black boot screen showing Compaq with 'Press the ESC key for Startup Menu' What should I be doing next - nothing seems to work?

Reinstall Windows, the one you have now is corrupted: get your recovery disk, put it in press Esc and select the CD as boot device. Now follow the instructions on the screen

Hello i have a compaq presario 5000 when i turn

This is a compicated problem. First when it boots enter setup by pressing the F10. Once you are in set up reset all settings to default. Save changes and exit CMOS. If that does not help the situation have someone make you a boot disk, reenter setup and put the floppy as the first boot drive and then CDrom. Insert the boot disk, follow the instructions to boot. Once you are up and running try to roll back the computer to the last recovery point that worked. If that does not work you may need to see a local repair tech.

Look in the computer BIOS to see if your zip drive is listed under boot options, if yes then you can use your zip disk to boot.
I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other quetions.

PC DO NOT BOOT

It seems that you don't have any Operating System installed. You need some bootable OS setup disk, and change BIOS settings to boot you PC from CD. Insert disk and restart PC, then follow onscreen instructions to setup OS.
