My T2625 will not turn on. I replaced the power supply about 5 years ago. Yes I know the machine is old but it does what I need it to do. Could the button to push it on go bad? I purchased a power supply and installed it. I can hear the motor on the power supply running but nothing happens when I press the button for the machine to turn on.

Before attempting to replace the power supply, I would check to see if they are compatible. I would check to see that the wattage of the Compaq Presario SR1738NX is the same or larger than what is in your current computer. This information should be on the label of each power supply.
Next, I would check the connectors to ensure that all the connectors that are currently connected exist on the old power supply.
Next, take pictures of all the power supply connections on your new machine.
Finally, remove the power supply from your new computer, replace it with the power supply of your old computer, reconnect all of the connectors, and turn on the machine.
You may need to check to make sure Windows XP was installed properly, if the computer had crashed, you can do a repair, I am a computer technician, and I can tell you, that replacing the power supply will not do that.
Power supply testers are a handy tool for owners of computers as well as having your computer hooked up to a back up power supply to insure you are not subjected to a brown-out, a loss of line voltage, which wreaks havoc on electrical components. If your power cable is good and properly connected and there are no lights on the unit or no beeps or sounds when pressing power button good chance power supply is bad. But if you have never opened up that computer and it is more than a year old, then there could be a fair amount of dust inside and the power bridge on the motherboard could have blown out, if you know what capacitors are there are 5-10 of them towards backside of CPU on motherboard, the tops should be flat and not leaking chemicals out, if they are you need a motherboard, I have not had one come back to life with new capacitors yet, tried 2 so far...
Most modern power supply units are of the ATX type. Brand should not matter. Your PC used a 300 watt power supply when new. You can purchase a power supply with more output (watts) if you like, but not less. You will have to purchase from a computer specialty store most likely - take the dead one in and compare it side by side with the new one before buying.
Get yourself a new one with new power supply new quad core new hard one terra evething new for a few dollars time change computers are something very different nowadays nothing to do with 10 years old machines....enjoy todazy life is not forever...;
Try a new power button. Also does the machine power light turn on at the front of the machine? if so check that the CPU is seated correctly as if it has come out of position then the machine doesn't boot. I would like to think power switch though.
