If your computer is still covered by warranty, call or email Compaq and ask for their assistance. They will be able to fix the problem for free or a very low price. If you do NOT have the warranty, then you may do the following:

This is because the video card you have is corrupted. If the computer won't even turn on from the start and it just beeps, then you need a new or replacement video card.

If windows xp loads, and then the monitor goes blank and the system beeps, try reloading XP again, this time format the entire Hard Drive, and install the Video Card drivers the first thing you do when your system starts.

Take you computer to a repair shop to test the video card and make sure it works. If you have another PC, then take the video card out of the PC and put it in the other (go online if you need help with that). If that doesn't work, then you have a broken video card.

My compaq presario sr1000 computor won't stop beeping from the inside and it says no signal on the monitor


1 short beep and 1 long beep means its a memory problem.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and replace the memory module.If you have 2 or more modules ,try starting the pc with one.If it fails, try a different single module.

2 short beeps and 1 long beep repeating for 5 times means its a graphics card issue.
Shut down your computer, then open your computer case and unplug the graphics card, then plug it again.If this doesn't help, try with a different(confirmed working) graphics card.

Hi trying to restore a compaq pc with the restore disk but it says this is not a compaq pc and won't let me do it? had a virus, friend reloaded windows with his cd because i was traveling and did not have...


I hate to be the bearer of bad news but your friends install has caused the computer to forget its origin. Try a restore using the internal drive.
  • Turn it off and restart it
  • Tap f10 repeatedly while it boots
  • Choose Factory Restore
If that doesn't work, you can call Compaq with the serial number and they might have a phone fix. Chances are they will want you to send it to them for a factory restore. (Think $$$)
  • The alternative is to live with your friends install and forgo the Compaq software.

When reloading windows and you are on the blue


Probably the problem is in the RAM, first open the RAM(s) and clean its both side copper teeth with a pencil eraser and try to setup XP. If not works then replace the RAM(s) and try again. Thanks.
