Hi there. I've seen this quite a few times. It might be a couple things, but it sounds like the board has gone bad. Have you done a few tests already, trying another video card, and another ram chip? That's what i would try at first. If you don't get anything from that basic testing, it could be a component that's gone bad on the board, or the bios that went corrupted/bad. Such board are usually just replaced. If you have access to a eeprom programmer, one could just remove (if it's socketed) the bios chip off the motherboard and reprogram it with the bin file meant for that board, that can be downloaded from compaq's website in the support section for that specific pc/motherboard. Else, the board could be replaced with a compatible board of the same format and technology, even if it's not from compaq it's good, as long as it physically fits in the case. Hope that helps a bit ! cheebster.
