The first thing to do is to make sure all cables are plugged in tight, all of the power cables and the cable to the pc. This seems to be too simple but it fixes the problem most of the time.

If the monitor still doesn't come on you have to determine which component is not working.

To determine if the monitor works then plug it into a computer that is known to work. If the monitor comes on then it works. again very simple but thorough. If the monitor does not work then you have a bad monitor.

To determine if there is a problem with the computer then plug in a monitor in that you know works. If you still do not get an image on the screen then the component in the PC is broken. If you get an image then something is wrong with your new monitor.

We need re installation driver installer disk for mother board compaq serie ep sb 440 bx chipset


The computer has an Intel 440BX chipset on it. Chipset drivers are built into 
Win ME or later, required from www.intel.com for Win 98 or NT. You'll also need 
to identify the audio, network and video drivers and possibly obtain drivers for 
them as well. 

Try the HP web site for info about the drivers, many of which can be downloaded 
there. HP did not trash the Compaq Deskpro driver downloads when it bought up 
Compaq. HP and Carly have trashed up just about everything else tho in the last 
3+ years..

I have all my pictures on a external hardrive and don't know how to get them on to my new computer.


Attach your harddrive to your computer via the cable that came with it.
Chances are it will be a USB connector.
Windows should recognise it and install the drivers automatically.
It will show up as a drive letter in 'My Computer'.

No cd rom and forgot log in admin password for hp compaq tc4400


Without CD's, if the Original Windows XP that came with the computer is the one installed, you can completely format and reinstall the Operating System with all the default software that came with the computer suing the System Recovery Option built in to the hard drive on the recovery partition.

Right after you power your computer on, start tapping the F11 button. After the Compaq splash screen disappears, the computer should take you to the System Recovery screen where you can choose to completely Recover your computer back to system defaults. I tried to condense the steps listed on HP's website so they wouldn't be asdf confusing. Here's the link for all the recovery options: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Document.jsp?lang=en&cc=us&taskId=115&prodSeriesId=1847962&prodTypeId=321957&objectID=c00608578

Go to the section named: Reinstall the operating system using the advanced recovery options

Here's the basic Recovery Steps without disks:
Plug in AC Adapter
Power on your computer
Right after you turn the computer on, repeatedly tap the F11 button
After the Compaq screen disappears, the System Recovery Screen should appear shortly after. Stop tapping F11 when you see this screen
Choose to do a System Recover and click next
Check if next screen has "Advanced Options" to choose from near the top.
If it doesn't, click next, and hopefully the next screen will have "Advanced Options"
Click Advanced Options then choose Destructive Recovery
This will do a FULL FORMAT of the computer and reinstall the Operating System and default software that came with the computer. (Note: this will wipe out all data you have saved on your computer)
Click Next with Destructive Recovery selected.
Reboot the computer when the computer prompts you to reboot
Process may take approx. an hour I believe. DO NOT shut off the computer while the process is running.

Hope this helped, read up about it on HP's website from the link I provided and post back and let us know if this worked for you.
