    It has 1 stick of 512mb ram which i have pulled out a couple of times with no luck. Is there a way to tell if the ram is bad? All connections seem to be good. Thanks :)

Turns on but no display


Many times it is the physical memory in your computer. You should get 3 beeps but this is not always the case. Sometimes you will get a 'No Signal' on your monitor. If your computer is turning on and you can see the HD light has activity I would check the memory.

Unplug the computer. Then open your computer (or laptop) and reseat the memory in the slot by popping it out. Do this a couple times and see if that does the trick.

Compaq presario beeps 3 times, won't boot


3 Beeps is usually a RAM issue. Try re-seating your RAM in their slots and rebooting.

Will not boot,,,nothing appears on monitor


Does it have any power at all? Do any lights come on? Does the fan come on for the power supply or the CPU? Any beeps heard? Did it run properly before or is it a new build?

Please provide more details.

My compaq desktop has two long beeps a pause and two long beeps without a signal to the monitor. If I put a recovery disk in it beeps normally but still no screen.


Sounds like a video adapter problem. Try taking your video card out and then reseating it into the PCI slot. Make sure your monitor is connected correctly. Also, it might not hurt to make sure the all other periphs are seated correctly. (RAM,Network card, etc) hope this helps

Presario won't boot - no monitor activity - long beeps


It sounds to me that it could be bad ram.If you have two chips in the pc,try taking one or the other out to see if it will boot.

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?
