I would say yes, the power supply needs to be replaced. It is a cheap and easy fix.

One thing to check would be the capasitors around the CPU. If any are corroded or bulging then the motherboard will need to be replaced.

Tower won't turn on. There is a green light on the back near the power cord that's flashing green.


Pull the power cord out and allow it to reset. If you still have issues you may need to replace your power supply.

Compaq presario SR5510f will not power on. Ligt


You need to check your power supply for voltages. There is a line in the power supply called "power good" that needs to be looked at as well. when you state a light is on.. is it the network light? If the net cable is plugged in it will illuminate the light with no AC power sometimes.. FYI.

Thanks!

Compaq presario sr1750nx Athlon 64 3500+ 2.20GHz Processor


Hi zcaldwell1;

You have the option of upgrading your processor without buying a new system. I wouldn't purchase the other system, If you looking to upgrade look at the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 6400+, that will step you up to 3.2GHz, which is compatible with your motherboard. You can get more information on it HERE. And for more information on your motherboard you can find that HERE.

The only thing you want to make sure off is that you have enough power to handle this processor. If you have a 450 or up power supply you'll be fine.

Good Luck

Mark

your power supply is possibly dead unplug it and smell the vents if you get a strange smell it has poped a capacitor or 2 try another psu from another pc loose before you buy a new one many a time a voltage spike may have done more damage depending where it got to
