    Nothing is muted and the volume tab is in the task bar but still no sound. This is really getting frustrating because I think I have tried everything. Thanks for your help though.

    I got it fixed. I went to Controol Panel then Troubleshooting. Then I went to Hardware and Sound, Playing Audio. It scanned for all possible problems and said that something wasn't connected but it fixed it.

Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, then double click the "Sounds and Audio Devices" icon. Make sure the Mute box isn't checked and the Volume bar is at least 1/2 way on the Volume tab. Also click the Speaker Volume tab and adjust the sound there as well if needed. You might also want to check the "Place volume icon in the taskbar" icon so you can easily adjust the sound settings next time.

Compaq presario s5100nx very slow windows xp


1GB of RAM is not enough to run Windows XP and the programs you installed efficiently. Removing unnecessary programs should make more memory available for necessary programs but it will never be fast. Crucial.com is a great resource for memory upgrades but I don't think you should invest in a computer that old with a completely unsecure and unsupported operating system (XP).

I hope this helps.

Compaq Presario S5100NX Desktop PC 1 LONG BEEP AT START UP I GET THE COMPAQ LOGO BUT NOTHING ELSE. THANKS FOR ANY HELP.


One long beep usually means a memory or RAM error..
Try removing the ram sticks and then simply replacing them back into the slots..
The contacts in the RAM slots are self cleaning to taking the sticks out and putting them straight back is usually enough to correct this issue..
Just make sure you touch part of the metal chassis of the tower BEFORE you touch anything else.
This will discharge any static charge you may have on your body..

Go to Compaqs web site and download the Win7 driver for your sound firmware and install it. Ensure you specify either 32 or 64bit. Check your OS for the specification.
Hope that solves your problem.

S5100NX PC Desktop Problem When I push the power button it feel's soft. No response from the computer at all. Is it possible to replace this switch?


It's possible that the spring that makes the button "firm" may have popped out. Take off the front cover and look for it. It's easy to put back in. While you have the front cover off, push the little (usually black) start button to see if the computer starts.
If the switch is not repairable, your best bet is probably to find a Used Computer store/repair shop. They should only charge a nominal fee, if anything. Computer booths at flea markets are good places to look for stuff like that too.
