COMPAQ PRESSARIO 5000:

I have a big problem with a Compaq Presario PC 5000. I am having problems turning it on. Rather than coming on, when I press the start button, the device sounds two shot beeps followed by a longer beep. It repeats this beep sequence again and again, and won’t go any further. I cannot access BIOS or any of the other systems, because all it is doing is making this noise. I have checked that the cables are connected into the computer, removed and replaced the power supply, tried it without the power, tried removing all of the unnecessary connections, and I am still getting this beep sequence with no loading of any of the drives or programs in it.

COMPAQ PRESARIO 5000:

I have a desktop computer which is a Compaq Presario 5000. It has previously been in for a power issue repair, only recently, and I now cannot get anything on the system to start up. It was only a simple failure of the power cord connection, so I don’t think they had to change the CPU or the hard drive or anything inside the computer. I have tried to do both Repair and Start Normally options, but both end up with a blank screen, with only the arrow cursor being available. I have a lot of data on the system that I would like to save.
