Having Trouble Booting Computer

I have an old Compaq that for some reason has decided to stop working. I use the machine purely for music in the garage. I get stuck on this screen with the cursor flashing in the top right corner.

I've tried switching the ram slots, as well as testing each ram stick out. Both of them get stuck on this screen. I can't even get into the bios.
Anybody have a clue on what could be wrong?

  1. you can recover the files by installing the hard drive as a second drive on a working computer, then back up, save your files.
    you might be able to repair the OS,
    you may need to wipe the drive and start over or you may have a hardware failure.
    I would try to save files first.
