IF you can remove the hard drive try this, remove it then try to boot up. If you get to the POST screen you may have a bad hard drive. Try removing anything else that can be removed (IE CD drive) and see if tou get any results with them out.

where can I find the hard drive on a compaq presario 2500 to remove it?
