Question about Compaq Presario 5BW284 (202493-003) PC Desktop
Last night the computer showed usb powersurge. the computer froze we had to unplug and went to restart. there is power to the tower, however the monitor starts with a green light then right to a yello one. nothing comes up on the monitor at all, it is pure black.
any help will be greatly appreciated
I had the same problem. I heard a sparking noise, then that message popped up and the computer froze. I havent been able to get it working since then. When i plug in the power source (everything else is unplugged) the power light in front as well as the LED power light on the back just blink on and off, no sounds or fan. I have tried replacing the power box, to no avail. I have also inspected the logic board for any burning or anything else that might be causing it. Please Help!!
P.S. I also have a compaq presario

I doubt if it's the monitor, but if you have a spare you should try it. Failing that, it might be time to go inside the computer. First step would be to pull the connectors going from the power supply to the motherboard. Examine them for scorch marks. If there are any, replace the power supply. Try installing another video card, if you have one. This can get expensive so you may want to shop around for a local tech with reasonable rates.

A usb power surge occurs when a usb device is drawing or providing too much power to a port. I would recommend replacement of such device before continueing. To trouble shoot what it is unplug all usb devices, start the computer, then plug devices in one by one.
