Compaq sr1630nx cannot go into standby mode due to keyboard device driver


If you can't find an updated driver for the keyboard, it may be that you have a USB keyboard. Typically USB keyboards will not allow the PC to go into standby.

I have a Compaq Presario SR1630NX and I cannot get it to connect to the internet. When I plug the Ethernet cable into the back of the machine, the light does not blink and it doesnt detect any connection....


Try downloading the drivers on a different computer and put them on a flash drive. Then install them. If it doesnt work then you have a damaged ethernet port and in this case you would have to replace the entire motherboard.

Need the schematic for the power supply for compaq presario sr1630nx


You do not ever attempt to repair a power supply. Between the high energy capacitors and the excessive voltage and amperage, there are no usable parts. You would have to buy the exact same model. Since this computer is about 5 to ten years old, you should be wise and do like the professionals do and get a new power supply. For Christ's sake, they are only 15 to 45 US. Be safe, do not electricute yourself for that price.

How can i tell whats my hard drive speed and processor speed? What is largest video card that i can put in it? Is pci. or pci express better? HP Compaq Presario SR1630NX PC Desktop


Hi there!

For the processor speed, you can go to My Computer, on the left side you can see VIEW SYSTEM INFORMATION. When you click on it, it will tell you General Information about your machine including the processor speed.

On the hard drive speed and all other things you want to know about your machine, I said you download an PC Audit software like Belarc. It is free.

You can download it here.

Hope this helps.

Type of video card


The Compaq Presario SR1630NX desktop computer, has a PCI-Express x16 slot on the motherboard, for a PCI-Express graphics card.

The Presario SR1630NX came out in 2005.
PCI-Express 2.0 technology came out January 15, 2007.

The Presario SR1630NX uses the PCI-Express 1.1 technology.

You can use a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology, however.

PCI Express 2.0 is Backward Compatible with PCI Express 1.1

You just won't get the full capability, of a graphics card based on the PCI Express 2.0 technology.

Will you notice?

NO
