    What type of keyboard are U using is it Serial or USB?

  • Don Matthews May 11, 2010

    Since you have posted under a "Refurbished" heading, it sounds like you may have problems that were not resolved by the last refurbishment by the HP/Compaq folks - or if you bought the unit used...that may have been why the previous owner got rid of it..... The error code 304 is a Compaq POST error that indicates a Keyboard or System Unit error. You have confirmed that the problem is not with the keyboard, so the problem is with the system board itself, and probably NOT repairable.

Code 304 = Keyboard or system unit error. Not repairable. You will have to replace the system board.

Compaq Deskpro EN 1GHz. power supply is ok. But not start with power on button. Green LED on mother board is on. How can I start this with start button (I think motherboard board problem.


Unplug it from the wall. Remove the side panel. Look for a small circular battery (similar to watch battery). Remove the battery for 30 seconds. Replace the battery, plug it back in. This should reset the bios. Green light on the board does not necessarily say good power supply as well. Very likely motherboard or power supply.

This isn't a sure fix by any means, but...
You could try unplugging the unit from the wall socket and opening the case. Touch a metal component inside the case for a few seconds to equalize static charge between yourself and your machine.
Next, remove the battery on the motherboard, and wait 5-15 minutes before reinstalling it. What this will accomplish is to reset the computers' BIOS (Basic Input Output System) settings to the defaults for the motherboard, which may let the machine figure out what processor you installed.
If it works, your machine will boot up, and you'll get an error message telling you that there is a checksum error or simply that a BIOS setting is wrong. You'll have to read the message and press the appropriate key to get into BIOS, then reset the date and time.
I hope this helps in some small way- It's rough attempting to set up a machine if you have no visual output to let you know what's going on.
If my solution gets you up and running, please let everyone know by writing a testimonial.

System unit error in pentium 3 compaq presario


304 error reffers to keyboard error. Verify if your keyborad is properly plugged in, also verify if it's working (pressing Num Lock will turn on the led, pressing again will turn off).
If you plugged in an USB keyboard it won't work, it is necessary to be present an PS/2 keyboard.
