  1. I have a compaq deskpro ep/sb series computer which was working perfectly and now for no reason it won't boot from hard drive nor cd.I have tried to reinstall the OS but nothing happens.I just keep getting the compaq logo screen or a blank screen.I have tried F8 and when i try to boot from safe mode or any other mode nothing happens .
    My devices are detected,and Ive gotten into bios and changed boot order but nothing.Ive tried to reinstall OS but it wont go past detecting hardware page and then it goes blank.Ive also tried booting in safe mode and all kinds of modes but after it asks me what OS to open with it just stops at that page.As for the hard drive,Ive tried another hard drive which had an OS from this same machine but nothing.Battery is good.:(

    What is the exact model number of the deskpro?
