Question about Compaq Presario SR1050NX (DW257A) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Everything? Well... I dont exact;y know how old this computer is, but a few days ago a blue screen came on when you started up windows (windows would not start) and it would not start in safe mode either, after talking to a few people, they told me to reinstall windows... i used this website to do it: http://home.jam.rr.com/joshua627/how2reformat.htm and after doing this, I am not able to connect to the internet for some reason, so I asked another person and they said for me to install the drivers, i dont know where to get the drivers and what i need to actually do... if anybody could help that would be great! Thanks :) -Amy Chan

Blue Screen (Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop)


Here is just a suggestion.

If you power on the computer and get nothing but the "blue screen of death", there isn't too much you can do. If you still have the initial installation CD that you put in the day you got it, insert it and let the computer start up from the disc (if not automatically recognized, it can be done through BIOS). If you don't have it you'll be able to go online (from a different computer) and get a copy of the disc for little or no charge. Once your computer is back up and functional, go to the windows support website and run as many updates as you can.

More than likely you will lose everything.

I had a dell inspirion (I forget the exact model) that worked great for a few years and then completely died on me. I went online at my mom's house and got a new disc, I don't know if they charged me but you should be entitled to a free disc, just pay the shipping. Long story short I got the disc, put it in and reset my computer. It worked great for a few months after and I wound up selling it to a friend who has done further updates and it has worked fine since.

Good luck and happy holidays!

If this has helped you in any way please help me by giving me a good rating. Thanks!

Computer won't load past Boot and now doesn't display anything!


the memory stick going in one way into the module. If you can't close the clips try to rotate it 180 degrees.

when windows starts hit F8 key and select disable automatic start on system failure.
This will bring you a blue screen with the specified error

also you can boot from windows xp cd and at first screen select repair, this will put you in recovery console
in recovery console you can scan your hardrive for errors like this:
chkdsk c: /p /r

In those list of options is an option like

Verticle lines through screen


Many times this is caused by a poor connection at the circuit board ribbon connectors to the boards, pull the TV cabinet off, unplug and re-plug all the connector to the boards a few times, take care not to damage them.
