Seems like one memory module is faulty/damaged. But BEFORE trashing the module, clean the slots and the chips and try them again. In some Compaqs the processor fan sends the dust to the memory banks producing shorts. You can learn about the beep codes here.

Please first check the RAM. Remove and replace them tightly. try to use other free ports too. If does not work, you may have to check the graphics card too..if have an extra added one..other then the built in.

thanks

I NEED TO HELP WIRING MY COMPAQ HOME COMPUTER


Set all items up ready to be installed Plug in your mouse and keyboard into the back of the tower. If u are using the old style connectors these have pins and will also be colour coordinated so you know where to plug into tower. They will have a notch inside so plug in carefully so not to break pins. If they are USB connections they will be square at the end and u will see where these plug in at the back of the tower these do not have colour coordination as u can plug in anywhere. Next your VGA cable, this is the cable that looks the same both ends with 15 pins in it. One end goes into your monitor and the other into the back of the tower these are shaped so they only fit in one way, again caution that you do not force in as you could bend the pins. Next ensure u have the power leads into the tower and the monitor, these are the cables with a plug on one end and a female 3 hole socket at the other, u will see where these plug into both devices. Next plug into wall ensuring socket is off first Then switch on Switch on your tower....monitor should come on by itself, if not hit the power button on your monitor Voila ...done

Tower is On, fan inside is spinning, no beep, not reponding to monitor, monitor is in working condition


You will want to go through my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Your computer has failed the POST test. No beep confirms this. Try cleaning the RAM and reinstalling.

However it is probably due to a faulty mainboard.
Diagnose the problem first though.

Take care!

Thank you for using FixYa

I would try shutting down the computer in the normal way, and turning off the monitor.
Boot up and turn the monitor back on.
If it still doesn't work, then I would check the cables and power plugs and wall plugs.
Check the mouse and keyboard cable and any other cables plugged into the computer.
The next step requires a seperate monitor or laptop.
Try unplugging the monitor and pluging in another monitor. Most laptops have a common
VGA adaptor jack or even an Svideo jack.
If the other monitor does not work, Then take to a qualified technician for repair.
It could be your power supply in the computer or video controller.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Hi! For dell machines when u unplug the video cable/VGA from the tower while the system is on it will show monitor self test.If you are seeing a black box moving around the screen it means that monitor is ok.Check connection between monitor and tower.Make sure cables are securely plugged in.Check if the tower is ok. There is a possibility that your monitor is ok but the tower is not.check the power button (whats the color) if amber/orange, this means there is something wrong the the tower. If its blue or white it means its ok.Also check if you are going to hear one beep, it means system is booting up properly. If tower is ok and you are using a expansion video card then try to use internal one, normally its the vga port above the usbs.If you are going to use onboard video card make sure you enable it first in bios.If all things fail, contact your manufacturer, if the system is under warranty then they will send a tech to check the machine.hope this helps...

Monitor did not responding


When you first power on a computer it checks itself out for proper operation even before you see anything on the screen. This process is called Power On Self Test, as no video is yet displayed and moreover there may even be a video problem the computer sends out beeps over its internal speaker to indicate its status. Usually you will just hear one beep then the computer will "come to life", if however there are any problems you hear a series of beeps. For a description of these beeps and what they mean please click here. Hope this helps !!
