Question about Compaq Presario 5005 (470014-507) PC Desktop
I was just starting up my computer when, in the middle of booting up, it said system error 32 up in the left hand corner of the screen. I tried everything I could think of to fix it, from re-installing windows xp on my computer to just restarting the computer. No matter what I did the computer just didn't get past it. Can anyone please help me?
If you have tried everything, including reloading Windows, look inside the case and check the capacitors on the motherboard. The motherboard is the main circuitboard, and the capacitors look like little batteries. There are usually 10-20 capacitors on a typical PC motherboard. A healthy capacitor has a very flat top, but a "popped" capacitor is bulged top and bottom. Sometimes there is even a bit of residue leaking from the bottom of the capacitor. If you have popped capacitors and you are not handy with a soldering iron, it may be best just to replace the PC (seriously). If you can handle a soldering iron, you may have luck replacing the popped capacitors. They only cost about $1 each, and they are easy to pick up from a place like www.digi-key.com.
