Tip & How-To about HP Compaq Presario SR1500NX (PX786AA) PC Desktop
If you try to power on your computer and nothing happens but a bunch of beeps there is something you can do. The beeps actually mean something. To make sure you can hear the beeps check in the bios options. If there is an option for a silent boot you won't hear any beeps. If you hear one beep every time your computer starts then you don't have to worry about this.
If you want to check this setting refer to my other tip on how to enter bios and change boot settings.
If you try to boot your computer and nothing shows up on your monitor do these steps first.
1-Check all your cables in the back of the computer.

3-try another monitor if possible
4-If on a power bar try to turn off the power bar and reset the breaker
