Question about HP Compaq Business d530 Small Form Factor PC Desktop

1 Answer

Compaq Presario SR1123WM w/blinking green light. Will not shut down or start up. Just froze this way.

The power went out while the pc was running. This happened once before, so I unplugged and left alone for about a month. When I pulled it out again to check on the light, low and behold, it had stopped. Restarted it and everything was perfect, until it happened again. I now use battery backups, but am still waiting for this pc to come back to life. Is there something I can do that will be faster than waiting for a month or two?

Re: Compaq Presario SR1123WM w/blinking green light. ...


you can flash the bios
open the side panel and locate a jumper called jcmos or jp1
its a pin jumper its currently set to 1 and 2. switch it to 2 and 3 wait ten seconds and switch it back to 1 and 2.. when it boots enter the bios and load optamised defaults then save and exit..

if you cant find the jumper , remove the memory and battery for 1 minute , replace and boot .. enter the bios and load optamised defaults save then exit...

IF the above fails then you have hardware failure.. reply here for further assistance

Green light flashing but computer is dead. what to do?

The green light on the motherboard? Your Computer has a few miles on it. It may be the PSU needs replacing. Also replace the CMOS battery and reseat/replace the Memory Mods, if you haven't already. If you unplug and plug in does the computer try to start? Fans spin? LED's blink? Anything? If it starts and shuts down in a few seconds that would, most likely, be a Power Supply issue. Their is a chance, of course, that it's just done.

System was up an running then, Then shut down

It sounds to me like it overheated and something burnt out, but I could be wrong. The main pieces in a desktop computer are: power supply, motherboard, cpu, ram, and video card (which is on the motherboard for lower end systems.)
Each one will need to be properly tested to find out which part(s) is(/are) failing, and the failing part(s) will need to be replaced.

Turned off compaq presario desktop and now it wont turn back on. I used the start menu to shut down. Everytime I press the power button a light flashes over a symbol that looks like a lightbulb. Help


Try the following:
1. If connected to surge protector, make sure it's on. If it is, then...
2. Try plugging computer directly into wall and turn on...if no then...
3. Unplug and plug the power cord back in and then try to turn on...if nogo then...
4. If there's a switch on the back of your pc that has 120/240. Switch it back and forth back from 240 back to 120, turn on again...if no go then...
5. Unplug everything from the back of your pc except power cord, keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Try again. If it still doesn't turn on.. let me know. By chance, has any power outage occured or any change been done to pc since it was last turned on?
