Hp pavilion slimline s3100n doesn't display on the monitor. boots fine and fans spin and stuff, it just doesn't recognize its own VGA output. What do i do?


Hi
First,try hooking it up to an external monitor if you have access to one.Unfortunately,we need video to start checking for what may be wrong.
Try the monitor and post back to let me know what happens,and if it shows on the external display we can start looking at potential problems and fixes.

I have a hp pavilion slim line s3100n pc and I what to know what type of video card is needs to up grade it


Hi:
According to the HP site, you have an open PCI slot, and a PCI express slot. However, you will have to possibly shop for a low profile card, due to the slim line case:

My pavilion s3100n when turned on just makes this clicking sound and the screen says "failed to boot replace disk and press enter" any clues


The clicking sound is most likely the "Click of Death" an indicator of a failed hard disk drive. The drive is having a hardware malfunction and the read/write armature in the drive is moving back and forth against the internal stops (this gives the click)
Replace the hard drive in the system

I own a hp pavilion slimline s3100n computer. Yesterday I turned it on and it kept freezing on me, so I did a system recovery and that helped nothing. Now when I turn it on the blue power light comes on...


I had a similar problem that when I turn on the power, the blue power light comes on but nothing occurs, even the bios page. For a while it succeeded to boot every several tries but it became necessary to try tens of times before it booted correctly. After it started the machine ran quite well, except when I make the machine sleep, then the machine would never wake up.
I found that the MB for s3100n has a common problem of this sort and HP even has sent out an email warning possible failure. When it actually happened to my machine it was too late: the warranty has expired more than a year. The replacement MB was above $250 and even if I buy it it is likely to fail again.
What I did instead was to get a microATX case with power supply, CPU cooler and a mother board and reuse all other parts from the failed s3100n. I wanted to reuse the DDR2-800 memory (my memory was upgraded) and athlon X2 4000+, so Asrock N68-S motherboard was a good choice. You can recycle HDD, DVD burner (SATA), card reader and wireless (internal USB), keyboard and mouse (PS2) as well. It was the first time I replaced a mother board but the case and mobo manual contained enough information to do the wiring. If your HDD is good Windows vista will boot in the new hardware. Get new drivers from Asrock/NVidia and install them to get the graphics and audio working correctly. Don't forget to re-activate Windows Vista using the product key which is stickered on the side of the s3100n chassis before you throw it away.

My hp pavillion will not power all the way up


What do you mean it powered on to the blue light?
Does anything show up on the screen?
Does the system usually beep when it starts? If so, does it beep now?

I have a s3100n hp slim line pavillion and thru hp tech support was advised to do a system recovery. when i tryed to reboot my system some programs were missing and they hp said that i need the recovery...


You must go into the BIOS on boot up and choose to boot from CD-Rom instead of the hard drive. When you first turn on your machine and the HP comes up push F10 key to get into the BIOS. Look for boot priorities and put the CD/DVD Rom in the first boot position (directions on how to move these item up/down are at the bottom of the page)

Then your disks will be useful. Put one in and reboot. It should read you disc and follow instructions from there.

Hope this helps you, good luck

Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.
