Question about HP Compaq Presario SR2180NX (RK548AA#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have to press my power on plug/button for several seconds before it comes on and the computer still does not fully power up. My monitor is black and does not come on. I have put in a new power supply, graphics card, dvd/cd drive. The fans run the light comes on behind the power supply plug and I can open and closed dvd: however, I can't get anything on the monitor. I know it is not the monitor as it works on other computers. Please help. I have information I need to retrieve from my computer.

Sounds like your video card to me. If you have an add-on card, it can be replaced. If you have one that is integrated into the motherboard, you can add a card if you wish. I'd go for a new motherboard. If one part of the board failed, what is next?

    I'll order a new motherboard. Any suggestion as to what kind, brand, or model?

    Well, it's a Compaq (HP) and the motherboard is probably proprietarial, so I'd try e-Bay first to see if you can get an identical one.
    If you can fit another one in, fine--just be advised you'll have to determine what CPU and memory you have to fit it.

    Black screen when turned onno display


    There are several reasons that your Toshiba laptop screen may not come on, even if the laptop appears to be running, and several options you may try to get your screen back up and running without an expensive service call.


    Common causes for a blank screen include a backlight that is turned off, a display toggled to an external monitor and improper shutdown errors.


    To avoid blank screen errors after your current error is fixed, make sure to follow all instructions in your user's guide to care for your Toshiba computer.


    Shine a flashlight directly at your screen and look for an image.

    If you see one, this means the backlight on your laptop is off but the screen is still working. This backlight normally turns off only when your screen is closed.


    Look for a small metal or plastic pin near one of the screen hinges.

    The screen pushes this pin in when it is closed, so if the pin is stuck in the screen closed position, the backlight will remain off.


    Tap the pin several times to release it.

    You may need to use a small object, such as a pencil tip or straightened paper clip, to reach it on some models.


    Monitor Toggle


    Press and hold down the "Fn" key if you do not see an image when you use the flashlight.


    Tap the "F5" key several times while the "Fn" key is pressed.

    This will cycle your screen through the various options that toggle the display to an external monitor.


    Attach an external monitor, restart the computer and try this method again if no image appears on the laptop screen.


    Click "Start," "Control panel," "Hardware and sound," then "Device manager "using the external monitor if you get an image there but cannot toggle the image back to your LCD.


    Select the "Monitor" option to expand your selection and select your LCD monitor from the device list.


    Click the "Driver" tab and select "Update" to update the driver, as this error is likely caused by a software driver error.


    Force Restart


    Press and hold the power button until the computer shuts down completely.


    Check the indicator lights at the edge of your laptop to see if the computer is truly off or if it has simply gone into hibernation mode.


    If it is off, all lights will be off except the battery-related lights if you have a charger plugged in. In hibernation mode, the power light will blink slowly.


    Press the power button to restart the computer again after leaving it off for 15 to 20 seconds. This may fix the problem.


    If the blank screen returns or you get a flash of images and then a blank screen, move on to the next step.


    Force Power Down


    Unplug your laptop from the power source.


    Remove the battery by pressing outward on the battery latch and pulling the battery unit completely out of the computer.


    Press the power button several times to completely discharge the computer.


    Replace the battery and plug the computer back in after about 30 seconds.


    Press the power button to turn on the computer.

    If you get an error screen upon startup, choose to restart Windows normally.

    This error is caused by improper shutdown procedures.


    Hope this helps

    Monitor will come on for 1 second and then go blank and the power light go from blue to red then if you cut power back on it will come back on for a second and then shut off


    moniotr switches into power save mode when it is connected to the computer and there is no signal for the computer. Try following the steps below which i recomended for another poster as well

    Unplug the monitor from the power
    Unplug the monitor from the computer
    Plug the monitor back in.
    Try turning it on.

    DOES IT SAY "NO SOUCRE DETECTED" or soemthing like that???

    if it DOESN'T it means there is something wrong with the computer.

    if it DOES:

    plug it back on to the computer, turn the computer power off.
    Press and hold the power button on the computer for about 15 seconds.
    Plug the computer back on.
    Try turning the computer on.
    if it's not turning on again there a problem either with your monitor cable, or the plug, or the video card plug. It is unlikely that your video card is broken if you hear no wired series of short and long beeps when you try turning the computer on.
    Good luck.

    PC won't go all the way on.


    Make sure the monitor is properly plugged in. Make sure that if you have more than one video signal on your computer, that you have it plugged in to the right one. (A video card overrides normally an on-board video connector). Make sure your monitor has power and has a power light on. Does your PC beep as it comes on? If so, it is indicating a very basic problem with the machine.

    Computer monitor comes on for 1 seconds, flashes "analog power save mode" and then goes black.


    Most monitors will say "Power save mode" when they can tell through residual voltage that the signal lead is plugged into a machine, but there's no picture being transmitted. The four states of a monitor are:

    * Off entirely.
    * Switched on, plugged into a computer but no video signal being received - usually displays "analog power save mode" or "digital power save mode" for a few seconds, then blanks. Comes back to life the moment a video signal is received. This state is the default in full power saving mode.
    * Switched on, not plugged into a computer. Some monitors don't display anything, some go into power saving mode, some fly "CHECK SIGNAL CABLE" or a similar message around the screen. Picture is restored when the signal cable is plugged back into the computer
    * On fully, receiving an image, and displaying.

    Hope this helps.
