Cant get compaq Presario SR2150NX to start

Compaq Presario SR2150NX . It has a ECS RC415ST-HM

board in it. It starts but once it gets by the AMI screen I just get a small blinking line in the top left hand corner. I had the hard drive and the dvd checked. Checked good. I took out the card and put them back in, moved the jumpers to reset bios. Any ideas??

Thanks, Will

Get in the bios settings and make sure to have the hard drive in the boot line, try different settings like SATA/IDE compatible mode if the drive is not seen by the motherboard, try different plugs.
if the bios settings don't stay , check the position of the clear cmos jumper and change the backup battery of the motherboard.
Try to boot from cd. maybe a virus took off the boot flag from the hdd.

    I can't use this solution because the computer is no longer communicating with the monitor.

    I am trying to boot from the cd. I'm not getting any output on the monitor now since the battery failed.

Need install manual for gl8e motherboard plz


have searched everywhere. I even entered a chat windows with Compaq & asked for a site to download the manual for Compaq Presario SR5015LA Desktop PC which has the motherboard MCP61PM-HM in it. (Nothing). This board was made by
ECS known as EliteGroup. Still nothing. Forms for the most part do not help, only with drivers. Drivers for the board can be found on Compaq's web site.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/prodinfoCategory?lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3411762
But the manual will not download. That's what is needed to hook up the front panel pins to you're case. I even looked for other possible boards who's layout was close to the MCP61PM-HM.
Nothing! I did find other Compaq PC's that also had the same board in it but after looking through the manuals, not one actuallys shows where to plug the front panel LED's on to the board. Why? Because Compaq does not support a user changing out their case for another. There is no money in that.
For the most part RobPu, system boards share some things in common. I am posting a picture for you. This pic is upside down for you so try & work with me here. Hook up you're LED's as shown. This should work for you. Pin 1 is you're starting point.
daa3370.jpg This is standard for ECS boards even if it's being sold by Compaq. Like I mentioned, for you it is posted unside down.
Try it, I'm sure it will work for you.

Want to up grade my cpu and ram to improve speed and program use.


Question#1 is my current processor duel core or single core , how can I know?

Intel Celerons are Single Core. You can also download and run CPUID (free) from http://www.cpuid.com/ No installation needed either , just run it!

Question#2 What kind of duel core processor in combination with new ram should I install?

I dont think your computer supports dual core. I cannot be sure without you giving me the make and model of the motherboard. Besides , a 3.33ghz Celeron D is a great processor!!!!

Memory - See http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Presario%20SR2150NX you can have a max of 2gb. You have 2 slots on the motherboard so its 1 gb per slot and the board takes DDR2 PC2-5300.

Here , you can expand to your max of DDR2 PC2-5300 2gb (2x1gb) for $24 and theres free shipping too!!!
