Compaq Presario SR1000 desktop boot up problem

\015 I have problem to start up Compaq Presario SR1000 desktop. After power on I can see LED flashing on DVD and CD drives, fans inside the box are turning, but hard disk is not turning, no LED flashing on keyboard and monitor is black.Battery on the motherboard was replaced and it did not make a difference. I have no problem to read the hard disk using my Laptop through a USB-ATA cable.I have a Compaq Presario SR1000 running an AMD 3800 64bit processor with 1 gig of ram (2X512). When the system is powered up, all that runs is the processor fan and the rear exhaust fan...DVD powers up also. Owner, (this is a friend of a friend's pc), states that when Windows (XP Media), boots up, the production year on the Windows screen has changed from 2005 to 2002. Also monitor reads "no signal"? I have already removed the processor and before re-inserting, put a fresh application of thermal paste...still will not power up monitor...switched cables & monitors, same problem. Can anybody help? Thanks!\015

Hello jjissaved55,

It appears as if the motherboard itself, is the problem as you have ruled out monitor and your having multiple problems (HDD, monitor, keyboard).

If it was the processor you would not be having problems with the HDD or keyboard, just video problems.

Bad IDE controllers ( Optical drives are powering on but probably wouldn't communicate )
Bad rear ports (monitor, keyboard,mouse ect)
---all points to a bad motherboard that perhaps shorted out but is still getting some power.

Post back with any further questions or info for further help. As everything you said so far points to the above mentioned problem.
