    Does it beep when you try to turn it on? Any of the fans start, or is it completely dead?

  • Eric May 11, 2010

    What do you mean it "will not power up?" Do you get a power light? Do you hear anything from the computer such as fans, a beep, any sort of noise? Does the monitor react at all?

If there is noise "beep" then it has RAM issue/RAM port. If is not noising then it has motherboard issue. I guess you need to take it to the technician and ask him to fix or replace it.

Monitor to other cpu and it works fine. Tried recovery tools and rcovery disc but receive errors, boot from cd rom no emulation, and no hard drive found. Help!!!!

First - re-seat the harddisk and reboot the computer. If the computer does not boot up then reboot andgo into the BIOS configuration to see if the BIOS detects the hard drive. If itdoesn't detect the hard drive then it could be faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Can I install more than 512mb of memory on a Presario s5300nx. I actually want to do 2gb or more. If so, how can i safely do it w/o messing up my computer. Thank you.

> I want to do 2GB or more.

As the Rolling Stones sang, "you can't always get what you want".


which states that your motherboard has 2 RAM slots, with a maximum of 512MB per slot.

So, how many RAM slots currently are empty, and how much RAM is installed?

If you currently have 2 sticks, at 256MB/stick, you will need to remove both sticks, and install two new sticks.

If you currently have 512MB of RAM, and one empty slot, then that web-page describes the exact type of RAM that you can insert into that empty slot.

When I turn on the PC, the fan on the CPU spins and the system turns off. This sequence takes less than a second. I replaced the power sullpy but nothing changed. The system does the same thing.

Hi, Lets try this to isolate the problem.
1. Hold down the power button just to check if the power button switch is not the one defective, if it continues with initialization then switch might be defective,
2. Second isolation was the power supply, since you had changed it already we proceed to next step,
3. remove/reset the cmos battery, the memory and the processor for 20 minutes and other cards in expansion slot.
4.After 20 minutes install the battery, memory and processor and video card. If it has the on board video, use it first before using the video card in expansion slot if any.
5. Power on the PC.
6. If still the same our last resort of problem would be the mother board itself.
