Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Hi I have a Compaq Presario 5000 and it will not switch on - when I press the power switch a red light flashes and nothing happens - any ideas? my compaq computer went in standby mode with a red light blinking. I turned it off and back on. now i cannot get in to work. any solutions?
It may be a power supply problem. Wires are thin enough to crack, if this happens when the power supply is cold the system will boot but when turned on heat is produced causing the wire to ope., hence the flash of red light. Try another power supply before buying one - easy to replace.

Sounds like the hard drive has had a failure, you need to get a replacement one, and reinstall it, along with the opperating system, and any other programs that were on the old one.

SOURCE: stuck on safe mode
goto start --> run --> type msconfig --> there should be a option to change to the boot tab, under boot options tick safe mode off. and press apply and then ok and restart your computer
