Compaq Presario SR2013WM Problem

When I started the computer the monitor wouldn't show anything. The lights come on and the fan runs on the hard drive, but nothing showing on the monitor. I tried to hook the hard drive up to my big screen to see if it might be the monitor. The initial start up was visible, Compaq, Windows XP message and than it went blank and the screen read signal? I'm not sure if this is an issue with the monitor or the hard drive. Please Help!

    can you get to the BIOS? the bios is on the cmos chip not the hard drive, that may help you narrow it down

Unplug power cable from of the PC. Then hold power button in for 30 seconds, this will drain the capacitors, then plug back in the power cable see if this helps, if not could power supply, or video card.

Computer turns on ! No display ! Did system restore and No Display


first thing how did you do a system restore without display? second thing unplug your display from the power and your computer then plug it back in making sure that the plugs are all the way in. then check that the monitor is switched on it should says something like no signal found, now turn on your computer, if you still dont get any display try to test the monitor on another computer or laptop with an external display socket. if the monitor works on another computer then you need to look at video card. if it is an onboard video card then you are probably out of luck and will have to buy a pci or pci express(pcie) card for it. i know that SR2013WM comes with integrated graphics so if thats what your using then just buy a graphics card and you will be up and running again. if you play games then get one with at least 512mb and also one that has a fan i have found that the ones without fans can heat up and slow everything down. ok i hope that helps let me know how you go.

Computer will not boot. The CPU fan runs wide open and nothing will post.


most likely a video card problem / motherboard problem or memory problem

i would suggest start with the easiest and the cost effective one.

take out ram, power on, power off, install ram.

reboot.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Black Screen Compaq Presario


Do you see the BIOS splash screen or anything?
Try booting into safe mode by pressing F* as soon as you power on the computer. If the monitor works, then it is a bad driver. Roll back to a previous restore point, boot to last known good coonfiguration. Last Known good configuration is available from the same as the safe mode screen.

If this is helpful, please comment and rate. Have any other questions, please let me know.

Green light comes on and the fan but monitor will not


Hello.

Could be the monitor or your Presario's VGA card. Swap the monitor with another system to see where the problem lies. If another monitor works on your system , it's your monitor. If another monitor doesn't work, then the problem is the VGA card.

Hope this helps.

HP Compaq Presario SR2013WM ...Power Problems ?


Unless the power button sticks or does not pop back out, i doubt the issue is in the switch, but it can be tested by replacing it with a momentary switch from Radio Shack (not an exact fit, but good for testing)
This sounds like a power supply issue. That would be the first thing to check. If it is NOT connected to anything except the power cord , it shouldn't run unless switched on.
Could also be the motherboard, but before you start dismantling the computer , check the obvious. Open the case (usually to screws on the back) inspect all the cables, reseat your ram chips and addin cards.
Not to scare you ar anything, some of these presarios have bad capacitors on the mother board. coupled with the fact that they are difficult to clean (inside) and airflow is not maximized in the case, they tend to cause the capacitors to swell and leak, losing voltage.
When you are inspecting the insides of your case, take note of any capacitors (little cans with crosses on the top) on the main board inside around the CPU fan that are swollen or leaking.
If you find these in bad condition , i would replace the motherboard.

Compaq presario 5000 startup problem


Firstly the keyboard does blink, but do you hear 2 beeps one then another a few seconds later, if not memory or graphics fault. Are you able to start in safe mode(press F8 when pc is booting up)when menu comes up highlight 'Start windows with last known good configuration' then press enter and it should re boot. The graphics card(if it's not onboard)may need to be removed and re seated, also the memory. Also check hard disk drive ide and power cable.
