Question about Compaq System Power Supplies

Compaq presario desktop computer sr1130nx on/off switch

I am having trouble turning on my computer. i have to push the switch in 40-50 times before the computer goes on.

i am afraid to shut it off as it has happened already 3 different times. i have been letting it hibernate overnight for fear of shutting it but it has been on for almost 2 weeks now and i am afraid that the fan will just burn out overnight or something.

this just started last month otherwise the computer works perfectly.
could it be the actual power switch go bad and can it be replaced??

    Thanks for your input.

    I will try to do that this weekend.

    From your comment about watching how far the switch goes in would that indicate it may be worn out or broken if it goes on too far? I'll let you know what happens.

    Thanks, citronvodka213

To trouble shoot this problem,I would open the case and make sure the cable are tight from the power switch to the motherboard, you can do this by sliding off the front of the case.

Once the front case is off you should be able with a pen or pencil push the switch slightly to turn it on. But watch and see is how far down the on/off switch goes in.

I have an old compaq presario 2240. and im using it on a windows vista monitor, but when i turn it on it tells me to insert a intallation disk. what should i do?can i download the file and burn it on disk?


I wouldn't advise that, aside from the ethical and legal issues there is the problem of getting the exact right installation cd (there are too many variations to just go out and grab the first one you see you need the drivers too! my suggestion just switch to a free os like ubuntu and go from there. (its faster too and has security close to a mac's all for free! And its legal!)

They all do, I believe, I installed a new one, into my computer system not long ago, are you sure your power supply is one that the computer can handle? You shouldn't have that much of a problem - I wouldn't go pulling apart the wires on the power supply, its made like that for a reason, what you could try is see if your power supply has seated properly, sometimes if your not working on a flat surface the power supply plug won't go in properly and will not be pushed in all of the way, try laying your computer on its side, and pushing in the plug also, each motherboard has a certain amount of plugs for example 20 and 24, some motherboards want it to be a 20 power plug and others want it to be 24 power plug, thats the plug thats connected to your motherboard, that I'm talking about. make sure you have the right number, and that the motherboard plug and the power supply plug match, basically have the same number of connectors, (I mean that little white plug at the end of the red,yellow,black, wires, I hope this helps. ps- I really had to push on the white plug to get my seated properly

Can i get any circurt diagram for compaq power supply unit..


I found this site for schematics but am interested why you'd spend the time when reasonably priced supplies are readily available from reliable vendors. I've pulled apart a few supplies and have had some luck repairing them but overall it wasn't worth the time. Switching power supplies are not the easiest to trouble shoot. Base wishes.

Presario S4020wm desktop


You need a new power switch. I am currently working on a S4020WM with the same problem. I cut one wire to the power switch, then used a paper clip to make a jumper to start the machine. It has run fine since then. The only trouble I am having is finding a replacement switch.
