Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

My pc freezes up. the only way to get it to do anything is to shut it down by holding the main power button for about 5 seconds.Then sometimes it doesn't want to start back up. I just changed the power pack in it because the fan in the old one desintegrated./ but it was having problems freezing up before that.


Answers :

That old saying to check first what you just fixed might apply. If you can get into the bios I think by pressing F12 lots of machines have a hardware check where it will go through steps to see if all hardware is functioning correctly. Its F something not sure if its 12 press while booting continually.
