Presario 3000 freezes on Compaq splash screen

Specs: Windows XP
Compaq Presario 3000 freezes on Compaq splash screen and can't get to bios. F10 key doesn't respond. Disassembled unit removed cmos battery,left it out for an hour,put back in,reassembled,and was able to boot to bios. Once in bios,unit would not post the fujitsu 30gig hard drive. It stated no primary drive. It shows the processor,and memory boards.On sys. info nothing shows up and unit locks up. I clicked on drives,it stated hard drive password needed. Unit ran fine before this happened,all I did was move it and the power supply to another room. Any suggestions? thanks

How old is this thing? You didn't drop it on the way to other room, did you?
