Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

When I turn on the tower the screen does nothing. But when I hook up the screen to my laptop it works like a charm. the only thing i have done on the inside of the computer case was just clean out the dust and that is it. Please help this is my favorite computer and it still works good (except for the screen lol)


Answers :

Check that the video card is propely seasted, that the cable on the card to the plug is still connected to the board. Also that you have not bent or broken any pins off in the connector plug. It is possibler the video board is cactus but the only weay to determine that is to try another monitor. Also make sure you are connecting the monitor to the correct port and not the mouse plug or one of the other comms ports

Lockup My computer works great except, it frequently freezes and will not take any input from the mouse or keyboard. It generally does it while you aren't using any input. Loading of a page or navigation on line. There is no pattern to it and it's even froze a couple times on the screen saver. I can seldom go for more than a couple hours without this occurring, sometimes only a couple minutes. The only cure is a reboot. I'm pretty sure it's a hardware problem. I've added a second hard drive, a f
