Why does my compaq presario SR1810NX turn off immediately after turning it on ?

Beep sounds indicate a hardware problem, check you RAMs, remove them and air blow the RAM + its trays on the motherboard then try to boot up again.

Compaq Presario SR1810NX, AMD Processor, XP with SP-3. Computer shuts down intermittenly (I renamed the Intell power driver already). Windows Media Player states there is no audio card, Computer monitor...

If you have a speaker icon at the lower right side of your screen, right click on that. Click on playback devices. A window should come up with your devices. If you have a sound card or graphics card and want to use either, make sure you're hooked up or that they are recognized. If the window is empty, right click on it and click "disabled devices", if you then see your device right click on it and enable it. You can also try, Click "start", find control panel and click on to open. Find "device manager" and right click on and open. Click continue. Click on the box with + next to "sound video or game controllers". A drop down should show your devices. Right click on each one individually, starting with one you want to use. If you see "enable" click on that. Right click on it again and click on properties. You should see a window with "this device is working properly". Right click on it one more time and click update and let it update. If you are using a sound/graphics card, that might need an update. Let me know what manufacturer and model you have and I acn help with that.

I don't know any processors that would be compatible with my Compaq Presario SR1810NX and I'd like to upgrade it. Any help would be appreciated!

The mother board will support any Socket 939 AMD Athlon X2 Processor upto the 4800+ model.

However Socket 939 Processors were discontinued so you may have a hard time finding a "New" one.

Boot up problems

If it won't go past the splash screen, and you have replaced the CPU, I agree that it is probably the motherboard.
One other test you can do is, remove the memory chips, and any cards that are plugged it, and see if it beeps on start up.
If it does, count the beeps. If it doesn't it is the motherboard.
If you get beeps, plug the memory back in, and try again. Listen for beeps. Let us know what you find.

And I don't know if Compaq's do this (Dells do) when you turn it on, do the fans spin up normally? Or does it sound like a small jet? Speaking of which, do you see the fans spin up at all?
