    When you press the power button does anything happen? Specifically, I'm looking for an orange, green or no light at all on the power button.

Hi,
Make sure all the power connections are connected properly to the system. And Inside the cpu remove the mother board power connector(ATX connector) and connect it again. If nothing works then you need to replace the SMPS box present in the cpu..
Thank you...

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

Compaq Presario SR1610NX won't turn off, and won't


The problem could be a hardware problem.
You can try removing the ram to see if it's faulty otherwise I am afraid you are unlucky because could be a motheroard problem so the only solution is to bring your laptop to repair service.

COMPAQ PRESARIO WON'T BOOT FROM CD


Hello, you are experiencing this because of the Boot priority setting in your bios. Your computer has been set to boot from your hard disk first and so it will never try to boot from a CD when it starts. There are 2 ways to fix this:
1. Go into your bios (usually by pressing F2, F10 or Delete key as your computer starts) and set the boot priority to check CD or optical drives first. Consult your PC manual if necessary.
2. Press F12 when your computer starts, this will bring up a menu to select boot options. Choose your CD drive.

Desk top computer w/ SN: CNH4390C89, P/N PJ506AA, won't turn on. when it was working, fan was noisy most of the time


The computer fan may be clogged with dust or may have failed. The computer monitors the fan and if it is not working it will not let the computer start. It is a way for the pc to keep itself from overheating. Unplug the computer and open the cover and carefully try to vacuum or blow out all the dust. Then with the cover off try starting the computer and watch the fans and see which one is not turning, it may start if there was a lot off dust. If not the fan may need to be replaced.

I was given a Compaq d530 cmt and it won't boot says non-system disk or disk error hoe can I install unbunto on it as a spare


Download Ubunto onto a disc (as an image) and then you will need to boot to the disc in order to begin the installation process. With HP computers (including Compaqs), right after the computer is turned on, press F12 to bring up the units boot menu. Select the optical drive and then start the installation.

It won;t bootup


Is your monitor plugged in and turned on? There may also be a bad connection between your computer and monitor. Failing that, your motherboard may be bad.
