Question about Intel Motherboard

1 Answer

Fried Motherboard I own a Compaq SR1817CL desktop. I purchased this about 1 1/2 yrs ago. One day all is well the next day all I got was a blinking cursor on a blank screen. I thought it was the power supply box but after replacing that I still had the same problem. My daughter has a few "geek" friends but they believe it is the motherboard. As usual warranty has expired. I run Office Pro and Quickbooks Pro simultanieously alot of the time. What would be a good replacement board? The hard drive has a usb type(?) connector (not the pin type)

    Before you go the motherboard route, what leads them to believe it is your motherboard and not something like a hard drive issue? Have any of the "geek" friends checked your computer to make sure it is not anything other than the motherboard?

If you are sure the entire thing is fried, and you have to be sure, i would reccommend a Gigabyte GA-EP35-DS3R motherboard, if your processor is an intel, it does down to pentium d, and ddr2 ram. i bought one of these and i can still upgrade to core 2 quad if i wanted. (does not support AMD processors,or ddr1 ram). will work for a long time, 5 year warranty at some places

Dont know actviation code for STmath

Which Model?

This Motherboard supports only 128 Meg of RAM, and came out in Windows 95/98 days!!

There is also a jumper on the Motherboard which resets the BIOS you may want to try that too.

Any further issues, buy a newer motherboard :)

LAPTOP does not turn on. only fan runs.

Things to check first.
1. Make sure you have a new BIOS battery installed. Some computers will not start if the battery for the BIOS is dead.

2. The CPU may have overheated and no longer works. I lost a CPU and everything was dead.

3. A dead motherboard can also act in like manner.

Sometimes something will come loose on the motherboard causing a direct short which of course fries the motherboard and probably the CPU. Dropping a laptop can shake things loose.

My Daughter had this happen with hers. It was a 800 dollar HP Compaq and I had a heatsink come loose on my HP Compaq which fried CPU AND Motherboard. Beware of HP since they bought Compaq.

Can i get V3000 motherboard CD of compaq?

Absolutely! Just contact HP. (HP bought out Compaq)
Go to, and on this page click on Contact HP.

Here is the page,
In the upper left corner you will see -> Contact HP.
Click on it.
Now you're on the Customer Service/Contact HP page.

I would advise calling HP. Much faster than email, and you'll get direct customer service by talking to a nice representative. (Really! Very nice people!)

Look under the heading in Orange -> Call HP
Click on the Blue -> Technical support after you buy.
It's a toll free number. 1-800-334-5144.

You'll need some specific information for YOUR laptop. This way you'll be assured to get THE Restoration Disk, for YOUR laptop.
(Their term is -> Recovery Disk)
You know you have a Compaq Presario V3000, but you need the exact model number.
You'll find this information located on the bottom of your laptop, in a white -> Service Tag.
Here's more information,

I purchased a Recovery Disk for a friends Compaq desktop, about 2 years ago. (Saved me a bunch of hassle with installing a new O/S) The disk was free. The shipping and handling was not. $17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
(After you install the disk, it will come to a place that asks if you want to do a Fresh Install, or a Repair. Do a Repair)

A repairman said the motherboard was shot

Yes all motherboards are replaceable, Your just going to have to find the correct part # you need. The motherboard shouldn't run you more than 100$, although a repair shop will charge upwards of 300-400$ for the time to install.

Compaq Mother board

Sounds like your hard drive has crashed. If you are getting an audible click from the hard drive, it is the arm hitting. Even then, sometimes you can get them to boot up on occasion.

The hard drive/SATA issue would depend on your motherboard connection. I think that there may be adapters to convert from a IDE to a SATA, but I haven't ever used one.

Either the new power supply you purchased is not functioning correctly. But, assuming it is now that you are getting some form of power to your PC, it is very likely the motherboard. Whatever fried your old power supply (or it could have just been the power supply itself) most likely fried your motherboard in the process. Probably not the CPU since the MB can't even post.
