Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1430NX (PS566AA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

Compaq Presario sr1000(sr1430NX) will not stay powered on

After power button is pushed initially it will run for about 30-40 sec and then shut down. Can go to F10 and go thru Recovery until HD is starting formatting then computer shuts down. Tried another power supply no luck, reseated memory,switch memory around, disconnected DVD drives,removed modem,disconnected HD and tried to boot to a Win xp OS disc only. But still powers down after about 10-15 secs after initial startup.

    Cleaned cpu and heat sink,removed battery, case is open to allow for heat dissipations. No loose cables or connections. Have gone thru this machine numerous times. Have not tried a different SATA HD but did try a IDE HD attached to the DVD connections on MB (if this will work) without luck.

    The motherboard is probably failing, however I can't be certain. It is less likely as the computer shuts itself down so quickly, however it could also be a heat issue.

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

    Hi again
    You have done everything a tech would do in this situation, a couple of options left now is the bios is corrupt and needs reflashing or the processor itself is faulty, if its neither of these then its quite possibly the motherboard itself.

HP Compaq Presario SR1430NX Powering On Issues...HELP!!??!??


If the power supply is "Fine" then it has to be your motherboard. Look for the capacitors around the board. They should have either a dished or flat top. If any are domed or have a powdery substance on them, they will need replacing. Or if you don't want to do this, replace the board.

How do I connect a new power source up to my Compact Presario SR1000


Power Source? Are you talking about a Power Supply?

If so, when you open the case just take note of where it has things connected. You will have a lot of connections that will go nowhere because they are there for future expansions. It's not hard to do, because some things will only fit in a certain place, so just take note of where things are before you remove the old power supply. A digital camera might help you.

My compaq persario sr1000 power is on the fan is on. but it beeps with a short beep and keep on. beeps pause and beeps again all with the power on but no picture on the moniter


Hello,
The beeping you are hearing is a beep code. Since their is no visual image a specific series of beeps is played and repeated to help pinpoint the problem. The beep you are describing, and it is hard for me to know for sure without hearing it is, sounds like a problem with your RAM.

First, try reseating the RAM. If you have multiple sticks of RAM remove them and reinsert them. To remove the RAM, push the tabs on both ends down and remove the stick of RAM.

Reinstall them by pushing the RAM firmly into the slot until the tabs click in place.

Try booting up again. If the same beep happens try removing all of the RAM except for 1 stick (if you have multiple sticks).

If you do not have multiple sticks, you may want purchase or borrow a stick of RAM to test your machine with to determine if your RAM is faulty.

Please let me know if I can further assist you.

Regards,
KYTechnology

Hold down the ON/OFF button for 10 seconds, to see if that makes anything happen.

The disk-drive could be in a "cage" -- remove the screws holding the cage in place, and the whole cage can be removed. Then, unscrew the disk-drive from its cage.

Bring up the monitor menu. There should be a button on the monitor itself. Find the signal input, change from analog to digital (DVI-D). That should take care of it.

Compaq Presario SR1000 Won't Turn On


The power on buttom might be it. Before doing anything else, check and fix the power ON button. I have a tower that gave me the same trouble. The Power On button somehow was out of place. Once I aligned it, the tower worked again. Good guess..! Good luck

Compaq Presario SR1000 desktop boot up problem


nothing to do with the ram ... this motherboard sometimes locks, ( dont ask me why) but if you take out the power cord for 5-10 minutes and then press and hold the front power button on the machine (about 10 seconds) it will reset the board. Plug in the power cord and the basic items, sound, video etc ( some usb devices tend to stop it booting to) boot into windows. Then add the rest of your usb devices ..
