It's possible your battery is dead. Or your cpu fan may be dead which will cause it to shut down. Try holding down the key for your model that will let it boot into safe mode. This will at least narrow down a software problem. It doesn't mean that you have no OS just because you don't see it! You may also have a bad power supply.
If you can get a bootable OS cd or restore disk for your system see if it will let you boot up.

Computer won't do anything, keyboard does not light up, screen is blank


So there is not so much as a BIOS message on screen? Any beeps?
If there is no life at all, you have a CPU/motherboard failure. This may be direct or indirect (e.g. no power to MoBo). Check your connections.
Otherwise, your boot device may not be operating. This is usually a dead or disconnected HDD. Check that it is plugged in. Does it get warm? Can you feel any vibrations from it? It should spin even if your cpu is dead but MoBo is alive.

Compaq presario sr2150nx ata 100 motherboard fan plug


The CPU fan is being detected, but there is a problem with compatability or there is a fault in the fan it's self. Have you tried your original fan?

Hi, my compaq presario sr2032x wont boot. Power light is ON, PSU light is green. CPU fan runs at full speed. I can hear HD sound too. No display. Keyboard light would blink once and then nothing. It was...


Actually it boots, just that you don't see it. Try using another monitor - even a tv will do: disconnect the present monitor, connect the new one and reboot. If you get an image then the monitor is dead, replace it. If you don't then the onboard video card id dead, get a new one and try again. If even now it.s dead then you need a new motherboard.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Stuck on Compaq Screen and keyboard dead


I would take the cover off and reseat the memory, video card, and processor. Make sure your fan(s) are working too, and blow any dust out of it if you see a lot of build up.

Dead,the cap light does not lite just dead


No fans , No lights, No sound?  Unplug computer and plug something else into outlet to see if the outlet works. If it does the look where the electric cord plugs into the computer , There is a switch . Make sure the switch says 1, not 0. If that doesn't help either have the power supply checked or substitute another one to see if that may be the problem.

My note book Compaq Presario 700 is dead


Does anything happen when you turn it on? First thing to try is unplugging the notebook and then removing the battery. Then, replace the battery, plug in the notebook and try to power it on. If nothing happens still, try removing the battery and then plugging it in and try to power on the notebook with no battery in it.

Boot up problems


If it won't go past the splash screen, and you have replaced the CPU, I agree that it is probably the motherboard.
One other test you can do is, remove the memory chips, and any cards that are plugged it, and see if it beeps on start up.
If it does, count the beeps. If it doesn't it is the motherboard.
If you get beeps, plug the memory back in, and try again. Listen for beeps. Let us know what you find.

And I don't know if Compaq's do this (Dells do) when you turn it on, do the fans spin up normally? Or does it sound like a small jet? Speaking of which, do you see the fans spin up at all?
