Compaq presario sr2109 - beeping sound/wont turn on

Hi, i have a compaq presario sr2109 and tried to turn it on the other day, but all I get as a response is an intermittent beeping sound (every 2 seconds) from the machine. The power button is on, but the computer does not show anything on the screen.

Any ideas what could be wrong with this?

    Thanks Pers_Malta. Its actually a PC I have not a laptop (not sure if that makes a difference). Unfortunately I am not so technical, but are you saying that maybe the RAM is dirty? This could make sense as I have recently had some renovation done to my house and there was a lot of dust generated, more than I expected. Would this fit in well with what you are saying?

    Should I consider bringing into a store for a service?

Actually if you hear this intermittent sound every two seconds you must check out the RAM of you laptop. If you are a bit technical you can take out the ram cleans its contact with a fibre pencil. Re put it back and restart your pc, if it continues to beep just buy another brand new strip of ram.

If this solution is ok please give weight to my solution, thanks alot

    Yes take it to a service centre and tell tem to clean the pc from inside. Specify to them to clean the ram strip, VERY IMPORTANT!!

Compaq presario 700us will play cds wont play dvds


Try to put your laptop always on flat surface. Uneven base gives angle to the already tiny clearance space for the disc. Could be that the DVD disc run coz its finer, it will spin much slower than CD disc.

Hope i give you some good observation.

No sound


It cant be the drivers if you were running your machine and if tried using the onboard sound card, compaq drivers are included in most operating systems (Windows especially).

I know it will sound crazy but
  1. have you tried to check your volume settings i.e. in windows volume control unmute everything and increase the volume of all the bars especially WAV, MIDI, and MASTER,
  2. Have you tried using diffrent speakers or even headphones
From what you say it cant be drivers neither is it your card. And since your card was playing before then its compatible.
