I too have a Compaq Presario SR1103WM Tower Destop, and I had the yellow checkbox next to Video Controller. I tried all the "Original" drivers from the HP (Compaq) website as well as the updates, but they didn't help.

I had just done a fresh install of XP Home (SP3) and have a Celeron 3.2 Ghz CPU.

I tried Run>dxdiag (go to: "Run", type: "dxdiag" hit "Enter") but that didn't show any video information other than the standard VGA video drivers were installed.

The display worked fine, and could be adjusted in settings, but the yellow checkmark next to Video (as well as SM Controller) would not go away.

I went back to "dxdiag" and took a closer look. I noticed that under "Sytem Model" it had "SR1803WM" instead of SR1103WM...hmm, could that make adifference?

I assumed that perhaps in later models of the SR1103WM that HP/Compaq may have started using Motherboards from a newer model coming out (the SR1803WM), and maybe they had a different video chipset.

I did a Google search for "SR1803WM Video" and got to the support page at HP. It had drivers for "ATI Radeon Express 200" I downloaded the drivers and associated software.

Here is where I caution you, I recommend you NOT install the ATI COntrol Center software, as it only led to problems (with CLI.exe not loading) and I had to uninstall it (with errors) with multiple attempts. I would suggest installing ONLY the drivers, even if you have to search and find them elsewhere (ATI Radeon Express 200) like the ATI website.

After doing this (getting rid of the ATI programs, leaving only the drivers) it worked, I can only get 1024x768 32 bit, but that is where I set all my machines anyway. It is possible you could do better if you just found the drivers, as it is my opinion based on the machines age that it could do better graphics output than 1024x768 32 bit.

Anyway running "dxdiag" now shows that it hs an ATI video shipset, and best of all NO yellow checkbox for Video or SM Controller. Yeah!

Go to this website for specs.

There's also an x16 PCI Express slot for users who want more graphics horsepower than the onboard ATI Radeon Xpress 200 chip affords.

I replaced 2 sticks of ram into a compaq presario sr1103wm pc and now I'm not getting any video display. The computer was working fine before but now there is no video. Everything else seems to be working...

Check your BIOS and reseat your graphics card. If your using onboard graphics then it's likely on of those RAM chips is faulty as it's sharing RAM for your video so try it one stick at a time to see which one is causing it

You may need to upgrade to a higher wattage power supply, which would also help with the performance of your computer. Or try updating either your system bios or USB drivers.

Lost factory disks for my Compaq Persario sr1103wm know were I could get a new one?

Most HP and Compaq desktop PCs that ship with Windows Vista and XP do not come with recovery discs. Instead, they use a partition on the hard drive. To access a hard drive recovery, turn on the computer and repeatedly press F10 (XP) or F11 (Vista) until a Recovery window opens.
