Compaq Presario SR1000 desktop boot up problem

I have problem to start up Compaq Presario SR1000 desktop.

After power on I can see LED flashing on DVD and CD drives, fans inside the box are turning, but hard disk is not turning, no LED flashing on keyboard and monitor is black.

Battery on the motherboard was replaced and it did not make a difference.

I have no problem to read the hard disk using my Laptop through a USB-ATA cable.

Nothing to do with the ram ... this motherboard sometimes locks, ( dont ask me why) but if you take out the power cord for 5-10 minutes and then press and hold the front power button on the machine (about 10 seconds) it will reset the board. Plug in the power cord and the basic items, sound, video etc ( some usb devices tend to stop it booting to) boot into windows. Then add the rest of your usb devices ..

How do I connect a new power source up to my Compact Presario SR1000


Power Source? Are you talking about a Power Supply?

If so, when you open the case just take note of where it has things connected. You will have a lot of connections that will go nowhere because they are there for future expansions. It's not hard to do, because some things will only fit in a certain place, so just take note of where things are before you remove the old power supply. A digital camera might help you.

Compaq Presario SR1000 Won't Turn On


The power on buttom might be it. Before doing anything else, check and fix the power ON button. I have a tower that gave me the same trouble. The Power On button somehow was out of place. Once I aligned it, the tower worked again. Good guess..! Good luck

Windows will not start


This looks like a Windows failure due to a new installed software or system tweak, or anything to do with Windows actually.You can try pressing "F8" button while your computer is booting (a couple of times since the windows dos select menu appears), then you can try to open the windows in the "Safe Mode", and when you get there, you can try to restore your system back in time a couple of days, to a well-working state. (By using system restore option)

Compaq Presario sr1000(sr1430NX) will not stay powered on


Hi!

Please check for the cables coming into the motherboard from the power supply. Also try and check for any loose cables.

If that doesn't help then please get your power supply changed as its faulty.

Please rate this solution.

Thanks

Unless compaq displays that message when the computer goes into sleep mode, it could be a virus.

Presario 6350CA won't boot


I don't know that I'm going to be a great deal of help, but here is the link to the support site for you Presario:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=390426&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Here's a link to another page on the Compaq site that specifically talks about power supply problems:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph06788&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=390426&lang=en#N514

They discuss a flashing power led on this site, but I believe they are referring to an led on the power supply itself. Perhaps the led on the keyboard and the led on the power supply are both flashing...

Good luck. I hope this helps.
