The problem maybe a loose electrical connection with the RAM modules and hard disk. Re-seat the RAM modules and the hard disk.
If the problem persists then the hard disk maybe faulty.
To test the hard disk, remove the hard disk and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer has trouble seeing it as an external hard drive and unable to open the folders and files then the hard disk is faulty.
Then the hard disk needs to be replaced in the Compaq and Windows XP needs to installed on the new hard drive and the device drivers and programs.
A simple but temporary solution would be to use an external mouse. Logitech sells several affordable and very nice wireless mice. Then you could disable the touchpad. I find them more trouble then their worth anyway and by using an external mouse you'll most definitely increase your productivity. :)
start pc...after bios screen loads press F8 in order to get to safe mode options......in the list there is an option to repair windows startup problems...choose that option....it takes a little while to repair so be patient but your machine should start normally
