Nothing happens when I turn on my computer

Boot to the Safe Mode options (tap F8 during bootup) and choose the option to start using the "Last known good configuration" option. Does this allow the machine to start normally?

Pressing F8 does nothing for me. Pressing F6 brings up something called Legal Opcode with a bunch of numbers and letters. F10 brings up the setup utility which allows me to see my system information. The rest, all I get is the word "Compaq", one little sound like it's starting up and then a blank dark blue screen. If I exit out of the setup utility, I go to the dark blue screen and then nothing further happens. I'm not getting any error messages or anything.

Download this Boot Disk Set and save it to the desktop. Select the download for the XP operating system you have installed.
To create the Boot Disk Set (this will require 6 formatted floppy diskettes), double click on the downloaded file and, when prompted to do so, put a floppy disk in the drive. It will prompt you to insert each floppy and to label them.
Once you have these disks ready, let me know and we'll see if we can't get you up and running again.

The Boot Disk Set will contain Recovery Console. This would give us some options to try from a command prompt...as well as the ability to boot the machine to a clean environment.
