Turn off the machine, open the case and take out the memories stick. make sure the contact on the stack and the slot on the motherboard are dust free. reinsert the memories and turn on the machine.

Compaq Presario F572us will not stay powered up. It starts and then screen goes black and shuts down. When I press the power button again it lights up but the computer powers off again.


Here's what you can try.
1. Remove the battery and try turning the laptop just from AC adapter. Maybe the battery is bad and shorting the system.
2. Try turning it on just on battery power (with AC adapter removed). Maybe the AC adapter is bad and shorting the system.
3. Try removing memory modules one by one. Maybe your failure somehow related to memory. Test the laptop with only one memory module installed. Try either one.
If nothing helps, the laptop still turns on and off by itself, most likely this is motherboard related failure.

My compaq presario 5000 does not see the new memory and when i put in both 256 cards it won't boot up just a black screen


this might be incompatibility issue with the memory and pc. check for system specs from compaq and check also for maximum memory capacity.

Hp nx 5000 - memory problem


The memory modules are located at the bottom of the laptop under one of the panels.
The memory modules may be OK and may only need reseating. Then boot up the laptop to see if it works, if it doesn't work, the memory may be faulty, take it to a computer shop to get it tested.

Monitor screen stays black even though it's on


Remove the memory from your unit - power it up it should beep if full communication is still happening across your m/board. No beeps you board has died. if it beeps and your using two diffent memory modules just fitt one leave the battery out and power it up = if no display pull power swap out the memory and try again. if display occurrs you have a defective memory module - throw that failed unit away

Blue screen error message, computer will not boot up


Check your ram. You may have a bad memory module. If you reinstalled your operating system on a different hard drive, then it sounds like it may be your memory. Turn the computer off, remove and reinsert the memory. Turn computer back on. If this does not work. Remove on of the memory modules and see how that works. Then if that doesn't work, remove the other memory module and plug the other one back in. Be sure the memory is seated properly. Always have the power off when doing this.
