compaq 12xl won't boot

  1. I have a Compaq 12xL 401 and I was transporting to a friend when the DVD drive stopped working.

    He sent it back to me and now the computer will not boot up at all. It is stuck on the Compaq Logo when turned on.

    I tried entering the BIOS by pressing ESC at the start. It enters the BIOS fine but it is as if no key works after that.

    Any thoughts will be helpful.
