What you need to do is to check your jumper setting for your cd rom drive and your hard disk. pherhaps there might be conflict somewhere.

What's wrong with my hp pavilion 533w desktop

you need to reload OS or install a new HD. Get an external HD enclosure first to see if your HD still works and while your doing that see if you can back up all data in the HD to another PC.

Can not show the login screen. i selected safe mode to restart my PC at home but it does not get started. this happened after I installed SP3. Please provide assstance. thank you RTIKILI

ok.. this is going to take some time so make sure you have plenty, and also make sure you follow instructions. lastly I hope you have good back ups as messing something may likely required reinstallation of your os.
(note: if I were you I would try to install the os in another system with a hd enclosure and I will try to get all the files you need out of the hd before you attempt anything, that way if you mess something up you can just reinstall the os if needed)

(note. I would unplug everything you have hooked up to your computerbefore you start (leave it only with monitor, keyboard, mouse) and thenattempt to fix the problem as suggested)

now, take a deep breath.. and start:

my suggestion is to revert your windows back to the time before you installed windows xp3. the process is as follows:

1st.. install the recovery console
the instructions are here (you need a windows cd to do this and you need to install the recovery console from the cd)

2. attempt to do a system restore from the recovery console
the instructions are here (this a very critical step as you would be playing with the registry.. messing something up here will require to reinstall windows

3. make sure you are in fact ready to get install sp3:
read this

4. now try to download sp3 onto a cd and install from safe mode
the instructions and the download link are here

Good luck!

Compaq Presario sr1000(sr1430NX) will not stay powered on


Please check for the cables coming into the motherboard from the power supply. Also try and check for any loose cables.

If that doesn't help then please get your power supply changed as its faulty.

Please rate this solution.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

The HD's power connector and IDE should only be connected when the power is OFF. If you have done this and the PC will not power on, then the HD is defective. Sorry.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Check the bios and make sure the hd is there. There should be a program on the cd or recovery disk to fdisk the hd (partitioning). Look at the dir on the disk and see whats there.
