Here's your system specifications:

As far as running XP...

I've installed XP on slower PC's than yours, but don't expect it to be very fast at doing any memory / system intense operations. Boot up time may also be quite long.

I want to know if it has a wireless card


Probably not. Here is the website for that computer's spec sheet.

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/hp-compaq-presario-sr1120nx/1707-3118_7-30969217.html

Under specs it says:
Networking Network adapter - Integrated
That means it's hard wire connection to internet.

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

Need a compatible PCI video card for my PC.


Well virtually ANY PCI video card from that era will work... NVIDIA have great cards say in the old FX series.

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.
