Question about Compaq Presario 700 Series DVD-Rom Drive (254112-001-) Plug-In Module DVD Drive

1 Answer

No pic on my monitor

I have a compaq presario. The monitor stopped working and I started checking to see if it went bad. I put it on another PC and it works like a charm. I then put another monitor that I KNOW works and attached it to the compaq but it too does not come on. The power light will light up and in two seconds it clicks off as if its asleep. The keyboard sleepmode light lights up. I know that its not the monitor. I do not know what the graphics card looks like. I found two things that look like memory and clip in like memory but instead of being near the back of the computer on the mother board they are near the front and go up and down rather than horizontal. I think they may be what is called the sound card or video card. I just don't know where to go from here. I did take the CD and DVD (which I recently added) and disconnected them. The monitor still doesn't come on. I dont know if I should try to disconnect the hard drive and try it but someone said it might be the video card...I just don't know where it is or what it looks like..or if that sounds like the I said the monitor comes on when attached to another computer and when I attach a good monitor to the compaq then it will not come on either...Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated...

Re: no pic on my monitor

If you take the cover off your pc and look to where your monitor connects to the back of it you should find the video card

For that problem, Try first replace that internal DVD-rom drive other good internal DVD-rom drive. if not Also Detected or recognize.
Try this second solution. insert external USB type DVD-ROM. if not recognize also, Your operating system Have internal software device data corrupted. You need to reinstall operating System like windows xp, windows 7 (OS) etc.. to fix data Corrupted of operating system device for hardware software.

1. Check whether it happens same for other discs too.

Can I use a compaq persario without a mouse? I am not sure if this is the right model. It just says compaq persario and has windows vista. the mouse died.

If you computer is a desktop meaning it has a computer tower and a separate monitor on it its called a desktop computer and you really need a mouse for it, but if its a laptop/notebook those that are slim and without any tower for it you can use it without any mouse since it has a touch pad that you can use as a replacement for your mouse.

First you can try a system restore to a time when it was working correctly. You can find that in this location: start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore Or you can uninstall the hardware, turn off the PC, and then restart and let windows reinstall it for you. You can also goto Compaq and find new drivers for it.
