Turn the computer around so you are looking at the back. There is a white plastic latch on the right side near the top. Press the latch down and slide the right side (actually the machine's left, but you're looking at it from behind, remember?) panel back toward you. Then you can lift it off the machine. There may be a screw in the top of the panel above the latch, so check for that if the panel won't slide. Compaq doesn't put that screw in at the factory, but someone else may have. Once the side cover is off you will have clear access to the system board.

Compaq Presario sr1000(sr1430NX) will not stay powered on


Hi!

Please check for the cables coming into the motherboard from the power supply. Also try and check for any loose cables.

If that doesn't help then please get your power supply changed as its faulty.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks

Compaq presario sr1330nx cover removal


There are two Phillips-head hex screws on the back of the tower. After you unplug everything, remove those two screws and slide the side panel out toward the back, then lift it off. Compaq has a manual online if you need other things after you get the panel off. Here's the link:

My friend has a Compaq presario f600 laptop & needs to replace the motherboard. What sort of motherboard would he need to get for it please?


I think I have the same laptop that also needs a motherboard. The Presario F600 also had a m/n of F572US found on the label with serial. Looking on the Compaq site I found the motherboard is the same as for the F500 notebooks which is 442875-001. Link is at: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01095493.pdf This number is also found under the memory chips on most Compaq/Hp Laptops. Simply open memory cover and remove the memory chips and there you will find the Motherboard replacement number. Good Luck!

I want to upgrade Compaq Presario SR5410F with Video card GE FORCE 8600GT, 512 mb. What are the requirements of DDR Memory (Presently 1GIG AND Power Supply 200Watts). Please explain what to add and take...


To install the 8600GT, turn off your computer, unplug the power cable going to your power supply, remove the side panel of your case, remove the current video card and firmly push the 8600GT into your PCI-Express x16 slot. Now plug in your monitor to the video card’s ports, close up your case, plug in your power cable, and turn on your machine. In BIOS turn off the built-in video and enable the PCIe slot for use. Restart. Insert the included installation CD and follow the onscreen instructions. The power supply is small but should work as long as you have not added other items. The memory is adequate and does not matter as far as adding a video card is concerned. Some games may require more memory, however.

Replace CD-Rom Drive


solution: open front blue magnetic case door, look on either side of the power button, there are finger holes in the other blue cover.
lift out from bottom to top. this cover comes off, not the whole
case. inside find tabs next to cd drive, squeeze and pull out. note: the side sliders were they come out, they will come off the
cd drive when removed. it is easier to replace the top drive by removing the bottom drive, put in the top half way, then put bottom back in half way and slide them in together.

voice of experience. hope this helps
