I have a Compaq Presario #5410US. I use to be able to enter the bios by pushing F8 or F10. I tried to use "The Last Known Good Configuration Setting," but was told files were missing or corrupted needed for XP Professional to startup. I tried using the original XP Professional installation CD disk to retrieve the missing or corrupted files.I tried repairing by pushing the "R" button on my keyboard.Now my computer won't let me enter my bios by pushing F8 or F10 at startup.When I turn on the computer it doesn't beep or anything.The harddrive will turn on and vibrate like it is working,if I put a CD in my CDROM the green LED will come on and blink a few times and then shut down to a black screen.Iv'e tried to download the user manual on another working computer I own without any success.How do I proceed or what should I do?Any advice or info would be greatly appreciated,"The Sturgeon General."

Please do NOT start more than ONE thread on the same problem.

You posted this one yesterday.

On the 12 February you started this one

to which you have NOT replied to the last post.

AND you have also started another one, which is clearly on the same problem.
