Compaq Presario R3000 Black Screen with flashing cursor

\015 My Compaq Presario is 3 years old. When I boot it up, it only brings up a black screen with a flashing cursor. I have tried using a recovery disk, but the disk only spins for a few seconds and quits. I've tried holding the "CTRL-ALT-DELETE" keys down for several seconds, but it doesn't help. Sometimes I see several green vertical lines across the screen.\015\012\015\012I do get the set-up options, such as changing the boot order, but this doesn't change anything.\015

Answers :

Lines are the BGA RAM Or VRAM Needing rework.. This will also cause boot issues on these models. Do you ever see the Compaq Logo? Weve repaired a ton of these and class settlement happened for the R3000's regarding the jacks but we could repair the other issue as well. (As well as install a new jack while its here).. HP's reimbursing for these outside repairs.
\015\012Good luck!
