    IT MAKES NO SOUND AT ALL AND THE CAUTION LIGHT WILL COME ON FOR LESS THAN A SECOND AND THE CD COMPARTMENT WILL OPEN AND CLOSE WHEN OPERATED.

    Sounds like it could be a memory problem. Do you hear any beaping noises coming from the PC? Or even a loud clicking noise?

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.

It turns into blue screen with white texts and from below, its says terminating (memory-something) and has a countdown... and reboots itself. computer: Compaq Presario PC SR5050NX


Its probably saying memory dump and the countdown. This is mostly encountered after some kinda change on the pc. It can be new hardware, software or just plain windows update. Lots of times it ends up being a corrupt driver. Try to boot in to safe mode and see doe sit still do same thing. if not than you know it is software related and you can do system restore. To boot in to safe mode on reboot keep on tapping key F8 and choose safe mode. Once in safe mode if it works go to start, all programs, accessories, system tools and choose system recovery. choose like a week back and click next and this will do a restore to when pc was working, fine. If you cant boot into safe mode it is possible it has issues with hardware and this should be checked out by a pc repair shop. Another option you can try if same mode dont work try to do same thing on boot keep on tapping key F8 and instead choosing safe mode try choosing Last Known Good Configuration. this is similar to restore. Hope this helps.

If its a crash of operating system then run chkdsk for c drive and select two options with tick marks. it asks to scan at next time startup. select yes and restart your system. after scan it will fixed.

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.
