I would turn the computer off at night, but try to restart the computer. the computer can get stuck in a suspended state of "hibernation" and due to a program error or a corrupt file it can get stalled this way ( just like when your computer freezes)

I have a Compaq Presario SR2020NX. I press the power button and the fan comes on, the green light is bright , the cd drive blinks then stops as if the computer is starting but nothing happens. The fan...


Disconnect the drive and try to boot to the BIOS (usually with F1, F2 or Delete key). If that doesn't work, try removing all cards from the computer (except a video card if the video port is not on the motherboard). If you can boot this way, try inserting back any removed cards to see what hangs it. Do you hear any beeps when the computer is booting (beep codes)?

Green light next to power button stays on - no response from computer, totally frozen for up to 12 hrs, then green light goes off, computer suddenly comes on for 5-10 min then freezes again.


Good day sir, hi, You need a thorough check on your PC.
But first try testing the Motherboard, Processor and Memory module.

As this point you need a friend, that knows how to tinker with your PC

Or you may need to do this.

1. memory testing:
Try replacing a new memory ram module on your PC, get the modules out of the memory slot, and let it be tested on another PC. if good,

2. power supply
Test for the power supply box, remove the 20/24 pin power connector from the mainboard and short the green and any black wire, your fan should blow out air.

3. Test for motherboard.
remove all coonections from the motherboard, except the 20/24 pin power connector, and the 12v 4-pin molex power connector, connect the pc speaker or the thumb speaker on the speaker port, connect a keyboard, clear the CMOS, (or remove the battery temporarily), connect the header panel (power switch, reset, power led) place the processor and memory (the tested good one). power on.


You should hear a beep (good) The keyboard will light up the three leds, then a few seconds, the numlock led.

If you hear 1 long and 2 or 3 short beeps, problem with the display section. Reseat any graphics card. test again.

If you hear continous beeps, reseat the memory, if the beeping persist, replace your motherboard.

If you hear nothing? only fan blowing, replace your motherboard.

I can only give you instructions, you need a someone who knows how to service a PC.
