Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1610NX (ED865AA) PC Desktop

2 Answers

I recently added more RAM to my Compaq Presario SR1610NX Desktop PC. Was 256k, now 2G. The machine now powers down unexpectedly with no errors, as if the power cord was pulled from the wall. What's up?

It may be many things.
First idea would be that you accidentally loosened some connection inside the machine while fiddling with the RAM modules. Open the case and inspect if all the connectors, especially from the power supply to the motherboard, are firmly pushed into their sockets.
It may also be, that the RAM modules are faulty, and for example overheat repeatedly, causing a short on the supply voltage line, which in turn causes the power supply to switch off.
It may also be, that something is wrong on your motherboard (like capacitors leaking), and when fiddling around inside you made the problem reveal itself.

Compaq Presario SR1610NX won't turn off, and won't


The problem could be a hardware problem.
You can try removing the ram to see if it's faulty otherwise I am afraid you are unlucky because could be a motheroard problem so the only solution is to bring your laptop to repair service.

My HP Compaq Presario sr1610nx hangs at the Compaq screen. I won't boot Windows and does not respond to esc F1, F8, F10 or the recovery disk 1 CD. I tried replacing the RAM sticks and the battery...


Try clearing CMOS. Take the battery out and press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect or change out drives and memory one by one until you find the reason your pc won't POST. Once you can at least get to BIOS you've found your problem.

My PC won't start? every time i start it the fan just spins fast and loud and nothing happens, the screen doesn't show. this happened when i took the PC apart. it a Compaq presario sr1610nx


Initially test the monitor in another pc, if display available use the monitor in Compaq presario sr1610nx. Load to BIOS by restarting and tapping F1, if the display available, the computer is ok. restart and tap F8, if the advanced boot option screen comes up, the software is ok.
Restart the computer and tap F10 and proceed with a destructive recovery to reload the operating system on the computer

My Compaq desktop computer has just recently started rebooting itself. I just added some RAM but its fairly easy to do so I don't feel I messed anything up installing it... Ideas?


Yeah dude, I had the same problem with my DELL. If you install more ram, sometimes (even though it has the slots) the computer can't handle it. Did you try removing the ram you added? It may work. Other thing is that you may have loose cables from the power supply.
