Question about HP Compaq Presario Media Center SR1750NX (EL445AA) PC Desktop

Presario won't boot - no monitor activity - long beeps

I have a Compaq SR1750NX which now will not boot at all. When I start the computer it makes long beeping sounds (dash - dash - dash in morse code) and the monitor shows no activity. Note that I generally leave it running and found it in that state one day after it was left on. I have re-seated all of the cables and cards (RAM, etc.), but to no avail. I have heard that it may be the video card, but it is on the motherboard so I'm not sure what I can do about that (if I put a PCI board in will it automatically override the primary video card?). Does anyone have a suggestion?

It sounds to me that it could be bad ram.If you have two chips in the pc,try taking one or the other out to see if it will boot.

    You were ABSOLUTELY CORRECT!! I had the EXACT problem and it was indeed one of the RAM. I removed it and the computer booted just fine. Since so many others said dust may be a factor, which I had a LOT of - I removed the one next to the fan and it was that one.

My compaq presario/sr1750nx/ w sata drive/ amd 64 athlon. came with windows XP. I put put a new hard drive in the computer, with Windows 7 installed. I power up the tower, and the monitor stays blank?


Hi!

It is very unlikely to get the machine working when the windows 7 HDD was installed in a different type of computer, because all drivers installed with the operating system are related to the hardware from the other computer.
The best solution is to make a clean install, using the windows installation disk, and after that to download from Compaq's site the latest drivers.

If you still have reasons to use that previous installation, you can try to do the following:

1. Boot from the Windows installation disk
2. Follow all steps until it discovers the previous installation on the HDD
3. Choose to repair it (or better upgrade, if this option is available).

But doing so there only 50-50 chances to get it work, or to get it to be stable.

Hope it helped.

Regards,
