No video showing above? If Windows XP blocks the video display, make sure you allow the ActiveX (active content) to display/download. Also, you may need to download the latest version of the Macromedia Shockwave player by clicking here

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".

Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Compaq presario sr1950 nx desktop - won't start

My suggestion would be to open the case and unplug everything and then plug it all back in again.
To test individual components, unplug everything but the CPU, memory, and video card to see if it starts.
Then one by one, plug the other stuff in and try starting again.

Computer will not boot up. Got message on DOS screen that says: "Primary Master Hard Disk S.M.A.R.T. Status Bad. WARNING: Immediate back-up your data and replace your hard drive."

Sounds like you have a hard drive failure. Get your recovery disk out if you have one, install a new drive and reinstall. If you had not backed up your data you may be too late. There are services but they are expensive.

Usb wireless adapter for Compaq Presario 5000

Most netgear adapters will work.
They're around £20 and will connect to pretty much everything =)
They work on windows, from 98 i think. So aslong as the old tower has a sort-of up to date OS then it'll connect for you :)

Hope it helps.

Ouch! The answer to your question is yes. The hard drive inside the tower has all your information on it (regardless of the condition of the rest of the PC) and can be transferred to another computer by making it a 'slave' drive. Then the computer's main HD (also called 'master' hard drive) can usually read from it. Rest assured, your data is still there.

If this helps, please rate this as "FixYa".

Good luck!

You need to open up the tower and look for the CMOS reset on the motherboard.  Normally it is a 3 terminal jumpered pins very near the Lithium battery.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.
