Compaq Presario SR2010NX beeping

My computer is making a beeping sound constantly. I took the RAM sticks out to replace them, and when I put them back in, the computer isn't reading it I guess.

    as in a pencil eraser? I don't see how that would help? I've taken them out and put them back in before, just for some reason it stopped reading them. If it helps any its DDR2 512MB, two 256mb card. My computer is a bit dusty inside though.

    Did you take them out and reseat them again? If you have, try it one stick at a time, perhaps you have a bad stick?

Installed lynex on my compaq presario sr2010nx and i cant get the sound to work

Make sure the audio drivers are in the device manager. Make sure the volume is turned up and not muted. Look at the Audio/Sound properties in the Control Panel and make sure they are not muted and the volume is up. Make sure you have the speakers plugged into the light green port on the computer and that the speakers are on and the volume is turned up.

Compaq presario m2000 notebook continuously beeps while starting up. The computer is very slow once fully logged in. Do you have any suggestions to fix these problems?

The beeping usually points to a RAM stick failure. If your laptop has two sticks of RAM then one of them has failed, which further explains the slow performance of the laptop once it's fully loaded.
To troubleshoot this issue, you'll need to remove one RAM stick at a time, and see if the laptop boots at all. When you have only one stick of RAM and the laptop does not load after the beep signal, then that installed RAM stick is bad. You may want to try and clean up the contacts with a cotton cloth and some alcohol just to make sure it's not an oxidized contact issue.

If this was informative and helpful please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

One long beep usually means a memory or RAM error..
Try removing the ram sticks and then simply replacing them back into the slots..
The contacts in the RAM slots are self cleaning to taking the sticks out and putting them straight back is usually enough to correct this issue..
Just make sure you touch part of the metal chassis of the tower BEFORE you touch anything else.
This will discharge any static charge you may have on your body..

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.

I have a presario 3017cl, when i turn it on the screen is black and it beeps constantly

Need to know the specific number of beeps to analyze this but all computers need three things to fire. Ram memory, CPU and video. Those are the root of most beep codes. Check your ram memory sticks and make sure they're fully inserted in motherboard. Make sure the video card is inserted properly if it's not an onboard video. If it's not one of these then you probably need to find a professional and it's a pretty good chance the motherboard may be bad.

Computer desktop problem (CPU)


You need to change your RAM. Get a friend who has experience of computer hardware, to open your computer and take out the sticks of RAM, which you can then take to a Computer store, in order to purchase a replacement. It is necessary to take the sticks of RAM with you, because it important to put the correct type of RAM into the machine, otherwise you can damage your computer irreparably.

Hope this helps
