SOURCE: Compaq computer doesn't boot, no

welcome to fixya

does the computer turn on?

do any or the lights come on or is it just dead?

if compute does not turn on then you might want to make sure ever thing is plug in ...

if ever thing is pluged in and and still does not turn on this might be the power supply has gone bad ...

if computer turn on and nothing happens this could be a bad hard drive or the OS has messed up first try to but in your reboot disk this still nothing happens then the hard drive could be broken

hope this helps you out have a good day

SOURCE: wont boot up

we need to open the case and inspect the cables and cards and memory to make sure nothing has gotten dislodged. heres how to get into the case.
Before Opening the PC
1
Remove any diskette or optical disc (CD or DVD)
from the PC.
2 Disconnect the modem/telephone cable, if present.
CAUTION: To reduce the risk of personal
injury from electrical shock or hot
surfaces, disconnect the power cord from
the wall outlet, and allow the internal
system components to cool before
touching.
3
Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet
and then from the PC.
4 Disconnect all other attached cables (such as the
keyboard, mouse, and monitor) and all external
devices.
Removing the Side Panel
1
Remove the side panel by loosening the screw on
that secures the panel to the PC chassis.
2 Slide the panel back about 1 inch (2.5 cm), and
then lift it off the unit.
WARNING: Beware of sharp edge

Once the side panel is off you will see the computers internal parts. Follow all the cables from the power suppy (top rear of tower) to th devices on the other end and make sure all are COMPLETELY in the sockets. Now do the same with the rest of the ribbon cables.
Now check all add-in CARDS installed into slots on the main boardand make sure they are ALL the way into there slots, sometimes these gets jarred or bound by the case and will work thier way loose.
Last check the RAM, the small rectangular shaped sticks with chips on them installed into similar slots on the main board, these can be up just a tiny bit in thier slots and the computer will freeze.
While you have the case open take note of any burnt smells or apparent swollen parts (capacitors), fans not working (inside & out).
It could also be your power supply going out, ive seen em light up the light on the mainboard , but not have any power to the harddrive and lock a system up.
Go through these things , it might be these , it might be something else, but its good to know your computer is clean and all mechanics in it are working visually from time to time. i can of compressed dust remover spray goes a long way to clean out those dirty fans and heat syncs underneith them.

try this and post again ....

Hard drive beeping noises


Never heard of a Harddrive beeping before, but I'll take your word for it.

The beeps you hear are BIOS Beep Codes.
The computer's way if telling you something is wrong, and an area to look into for it.

The beeps are a pattern, or Code.
For example; 1 Long beep, a pause; then 3 Short beeps.

One Short beep, pause, Short Beep, pause; and repeating over, and over.

So....................in your own words Eric, tell the jury where you were on the night in question?
Do you have any alibi's?

WHAT? !O_O!

I mean................what is the beep code you hear?

Plus what is the Product Number of the HP desktop computer?
This can be found on the back of the computer, in the white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number

Post back in a Comment.

My pc is booting but no display


Did you check your monitor with other system or individually. If it works fine in these conditions then the issue belongs to your pc.
First of all, you have to confirm that is it the problem of VGA itself or the motherboard. For this, you have to see that does system beep when you start it because system with beeps having the error and the beep sound with continuous or 2-3 beeps relate with different issues. I am going to write down the beep conditions.

1 short beep Normal POST - system is ok 2 short beeps POST Error - error code shown on screen No beep Power supply or system board problem Continuous beep Power supply, system board, or keyboard problem Repeating short beeps Power supply or system board problem 1 long, 1 short beep System board problem 1 long, 2 short beeps Display adapter problem (MDA, CGA) 1 long, 3 short beeps Enhanced Graphics Adapter (EGA) 3 long beeps 3270 keyboard card


best of luck!

THE RED LIGHT IS ON AND BEEPS EVERY MINUTE


What motherboard do you have? If you don't know, provice make and model of your system and maybe we can find out that way. Is it one long beep? Are there any other beeps and/or a sequence. A good place to start and alot of times, depending on your bios, 1 to 3 beeps means a problem with the RAM(memory). If you have more than 1 stick, you can pull them out, restart and if the beep is the same, you've probably found your culprit. You can then insert one at a time in one of your slots, then restart. If this works, you've found a good stick. If not, try another slot and restart, etc. Try all sticks in all slots.

My ECS 915 G-A elite group motherboard doesnot display anymore on the monitor..


have you tried to isolate what the cause of the problem? first check the video card if is properly inserted into the slot, and check the memory, and cable from CPU to monitor if it is connected properly. then boot your system. And try to observe this beep error code this might help you locate where the problem is.

Wont Post get 9 beeps!


This problem is due to the mix of registered and unregistered DIMMs. 64Mb and 128 Mb DIMM's are unregistered memory technology 256MB is registered memory technology. A mix of registered and unregistered memory prevents the server from completing startup, and results in an error beep sequence and a blank screen
