Try reinstalling your word processor or office suite. By the way can you still do spreadsheets?

When i turn on power it only beeps what do i need to do


Hello Michael, It's most likely that your ram is bad. Power down your tower and UNPLUG it. Open up your tower and see if you have duel channel ram. if so, take one out and restart your computer. if it starts then the stick of ram you took out is probably bad. Do the same with the other if it does not start by putting back the one you took out first. Remember! always unplug your tower and you will be ok. Good Day PS

Pc wont stay on & will not boot up ?


hi.
It sounds like your motherboard has froze.
A common condition with HP/COMPAQ computers.

Here's what you should try to get it going again.

First unplug the power cord from the tower.

Next, hold the power button in for AT LEAST 45 seconds.

This allows the capacitors to dissipate, and in so doing allows the mobo to go back to a ready state.

Next, plug the tower back in, and attempt to power up.

If it was just a stuck mobo, this should work and you should now be booting up.

Now, if that doesn't get you up and running, then you have a hardware failure, either with memory, or with the hard drive/drives.

To check that, remove memory one at a time, and reboot if it works, then the module you took out is faulty. If not, then replace that module and take out the other one and try booting up again.
Same thing, if that works, then the module you took out was bad.

As for drives, if your hard drive has crashed out on you, it may mean a loss of all saved data, games, photos, and applications.

I know that's not what you want to hear, but I would rather tell you the truth, instead of lie to you and tell you that everything's ok.

I hope this helps you out.

Compaq Presario SR1000 Won't Turn On


The power on buttom might be it. Before doing anything else, check and fix the power ON button. I have a tower that gave me the same trouble. The Power On button somehow was out of place. Once I aligned it, the tower worked again. Good guess..! Good luck

Hi Brenda,

Your All In One wants a phone line hooked directly to it. It won't fax without a "POTS" line directly hooked to it. POTS stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service" which is the line with good old dial tone on it.

Replacing the hardrive


i do not have the same model as you but generally all covers come off in a similar way. first have a look round the tower and you should see screws mainly at the back, have a good look at the screws because some hold components to the cover inside. you need to look for screws that are right on the edge of one side, generally larger than any other, undo them,then check the bottom of the tower on the same side as these ecrews, remove them, then the side that had the screws should slide towards the back, it may seem a little stiff, but should slide backwards a few centimetres and then fall,off loosely. hope this helps
