Compaq computer power supply model HP-U250XC3 how to turn it on

what PC? none stated, just PSU.
what are you doing with that PSU
bench testing, it or what>>>??? we cant guess USAGE ever.

to bench test it use a jumper wire.
the 24 pin cable ATX2, jump pin 15 to 16, PS_on to ground.
that turns it on, so you can use a voltmeter to check each power rail pin.

in inside PC, it must be connect to the MOBO
and then the MOBO power switch connected or it cant be turned on.

Compaq desktop cant connect to internet, even though the modem and ethernet cable are working fine.

There are too many variables to address before your question can be answered. You best option is to contact your Internet service provider.

I hope this helps.

Hi i Just bought dlink 600 i am using compaq and has iphone and internet tv all of them cant connect by wifi my compaq can only connect with a cable. on my tv it says internet connection failed. and btw cm...

ok first prep. we need to configure your router. to do that we need your compaq laptop directly connected to the dlink via ethernet cable. after securing the connection, try to open a browser, whether internet explorer or mozilla firefox. go to the address bar and type in, it would ask you now for a username. username is " admin " password is " password " if it wont let you in, try "admin" for password. if it still cant, try to live it blank and just click on login. it would take you now to the dlink router page. there you can configure your wireless connection and set your network name. make sure to click apply settings after configuring it. then try to check your wireless connectivity again. this should work.
