    If its a clicking sound then it could be the hard drive going bad. With your computer turned off, Open up your computer and disconnect the power connector and cable from the hard drive. Turn the computer back on and tell me if you still hear the steady clicking sound.

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

HP desktop locked up, when turned on and off it just beeps


Did you try hitting F8 as it is booting up to get to safe screen? Sometimes that at least gets you into it so you can scan for problems.

Bios setting problem


This happens because Windows is corrupted.

You need to start the computer with a windows install disk, or a factory recovery disk inside to reinstall the system.

Get a windows install disk and reinstall the system.

My computer wont start up


First try pressing F2 at start up to see if you can get to setup. Also pressing F12 may get you a boot menu. If cd is already set as first boot you may get a chance to boot from a Windows cd. The idea here is to get to a minimal Windows configuration like setup or safe mode (F8) to see if this is a hardware or operating system fault. Two common issues with eMachines are power supply problems where repetitive reboots can actually fry the motherboard or if the PC has a few years use the CMOS battery. Steve Medley

Computer beeps and screen is blank


The computer beeps when some components are missing. Check all the connections.

Please try to press F8 at the boot, and choose Safe mode. You will see then if it is the hard drive the problem.

If you have more information after the T180 for the model number, can you indicate it please. You might have to update the BIOS.

Getting blue screen after start up


Try booting up to the recovery CD, it sounds like a software conflict error that is locking up your computer.

Try 1st if you can get into safe mode (hitting F8 when you first apply power to the computer, till the safe mode screen comes up)

Then try booting up to the last known good configuration (same F8 different selection on screen)

THEN try the recovery CD.
