Question about Compaq Presario S6300NX PC Desktop

1 Answer


I have a Compaq Presario S6300NX, had it for awhile, I have had no problems with it up until now, with no warning, no clue, no hint, and just out of the blue after a normal shutdown last night, woke up this morning and went to turn on the computer and nothing hsppened, no lights, no beep, no screen absolutely nothing happened, although I have noticed the little green light on the back of the computer near where you plug the AC cord in is Blinking and not a steady on as it should be under normal conditions, What does this indicate? Is it time for a new internal power supply? I have checked the power sorces (powerstrip, wall outlet and the AC Cord) and they are all good.

    When I go to turn on the computer, nothing. The green light where the power supply cord is on. When I hit the button in the front to turn the computer on...the green light goes off and there is no power. When I pull the power supply cord out and replug it the green light goes on and I still cannot get power to the tower.

Most common reason for this would be defective power supply, if it is less than 1 year old, may still be under warranty. If older then you can usually find replacement power supply $40+ at local computer store. Not to difficult to replace, average tech could swap it in less than 15 minutes. Can test it with one of these:

Everything has been working okay on this compaq until this morning. Upon powering up a Red and White HP screen pops up that turns into a black screen which reads quite simply: "Disk Boot...

The computer could not read your copy of Windows from your disk-drive.

* there is no electrical power getting to the disk-drive (check the power cable)
* the "data" cable between the motherboard and the disk-drive is faulty or not-connected (check it)
* the power-supply in your computer is not supplying power to the disk-drive (try different power-supply)
* the disk-drive itself has "failed" (maybe, the motor that spins the disk-drive has failed)

Take your computer to a professional technician for trouble-shooting.

Change your hotmail password immediately, someone else has access to your account. Run a full virus-scan of your computer with Microsoft Security Essentials or AVG Free - keep running scans until it comes up zero.

Can the compaq presario s6300nx has the requirments for windows vista

If the pc is stock - no. To make it compatible you need to add a lot more memory, at least 1GB, and you need a decent video card. With that 7 will run acceptably well, it's still an old pc with a weak processor.

Presario 6350CA won't boot

I don't know that I'm going to be a great deal of help, but here is the link to the support site for you Presario:

Here's a link to another page on the Compaq site that specifically talks about power supply problems:

They discuss a flashing power led on this site, but I believe they are referring to an led on the power supply itself. Perhaps the led on the keyboard and the led on the power supply are both flashing...

Good luck. I hope this helps.
