Hp compaq 6200 not starting


A few things can go wrong when you are performing a computer upgrade of any kind, because during an upgrade, you remove and install parts, and it's easy for something to come loose, which may prevent the computer from starting.


Open the computer case, unscrew the video card and lift it out.

Make sure you move any release tabs before getting the video card out.


Put the video card back in place.

Check the nearby components, and make sure everything, especially the memory, is securely in place.


Close the cover and try to start the computer.

If it still doesn't start, replace the new card with the old card and check again.


If the computer starts with the old card, the new card is likely bad.

If it doesn't start with the old card, you may have shorted out the power supply and need to replace the power supply, but this is rare.


The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible.


There is a connection problem such as a bad cable

for internal hard drives


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA


the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a

secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide


this will be the first to fail


Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Hope this helps

Memory upgrade on gx280 beeps on boot but doesn't start. memory beeps 1 234 5 6


When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer. The other issue is if that model supports 4 gig memory.

My sister gave me a Compaq evo computer. When i turn it on it goes right to a screen that says Power-on password with a picture of a key. She doesn't know what the password was and it doesn't let...


Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

Regards,
JJ

Sound device not working


Windows XP


START - My Computer (RIGHT CLICK) - Properties - Hardware Tab - Device Manager button - click on the sound, video and game controllers - on the drop down menu you should see sound codec - either right click and UPDATE DRIVER - or delete sound codec’s and restart, XP will install suitable sound drivers.

If that doesn’t work then try installing sound drivers from the computer manufacturer.
If you have a big X on the sound codec or your third party drivers than it’s a hardware issue.

If replacing the drivers’ doesn’t work then it's a hardware issue. If you have onboard sound card then you will need to replace the mother board. I hope it's under warranty.
