Does it give you the blue screen still? Or upon boot it just beeps at you and that is it?

What is the beep code. Most motherboards beep when there is something critical wrong and it cant past POST. 4 beeps = hard drive, 3 beeps = CPU, etc. You need to find out how many beeps then look at compaq's website to see where the failure lies.
