Question about Compaq Presario SR1103WM-B (PC183B#ABA) PC Desktop
If there is a reset button on the computer or power supply try pressing it
Posted on Mar 07, 2009
Im assuming this is a desktop computer.
I ask this, because sometimes people post in the wrong categorys.
If your getting no power, Then the first steps, are as you,ve already done, checked the plugs main fuse. Should be rated 3-5 Amp.
The next suspect item, would be your computers PSU ( power supply Unit ) This can only really be checked with a multi-meter, if you take the side/top panel off. ( whichever Applies ) Towercase Or desktop.
You have an internal Power supply unit. This provides power to Motherboard, and internal hardware Devices. Hard-Drive CD Rom And any other internal devices. You,ll see a Square Box to the rear of The Computer, with several cables coming out from it. The Majority will Have 1 Red @ 5volt 2 Blacks Earth or ground And 1 yellow Cable @ 12 volts.
There may be an internal quick blow fuse in the PSU Itself.
To attempt to remedy your issue, i,d suggest to remove ( unpowered switched Off ) the 4 Pin Connector To the Hard-drive And the CD/DVD rom. These 4 pin Plastic Plugs are refered to As molex Connectors. simply pull the plugs, towards the rear of the Computer. HD/DVD Drives Only. Then try to power On Computer. this will eliminate, a possible hard-drive failure or seizure, and also allow the PSU extra power for booting up the Computer.
Other probabilitys are broken or faulty, power/On case switch, but quite rare.
If you follow these steps, and get some form of life from the Computer. Please let me know, and i will guide you further.
