I have a compac presario 6000 PC, bought in 2003 which will not boot up. I get the Compac screen, offering Setup and system restore, but it does not respond to either. It appears to find peripherals (CD and DVD drive lights flash and keyboard works) but no sign of hard drive activity. I would like to rescue this computer rather than just ditch it. How do I go about diagnosing the fault?
Sorry, lack of info! OS is Windows XP, and I have a recovery disc set. I tried booting from this but there was no response! More detailed technical information is inaccessible, as I have lost the specifications sticker that was on the box and can't read any info stored in the machine!
