Opening the tower to add Ram memory


I happened to find a PDF on compaq's support site: if you use Ctrl+F in your web browser and put in DC5100MT it will take you down to the right place. Simply open this PDF if your favorite viewer and there's a whole series of images explaining how to take the panel off (page 4).

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

    I dont know how to open up the cas of my compaq to install the memory


    What is the model of your computer?

    Is it a tower?

    If it is a tower, look on the back of your case. Along the right side there should be two screws. Remove both screws, grasp the side of the case where you removed the screws, and slide the side backwards. The panel should lift right off.

    Tower


    Hi,

    You need to open up the tower and look for the CMOS reset on the motherboard.  Normally it is a 3 terminal jumpered pins very near the Lithium battery.

    Hope this be of some help/idea. Good luck and kind regards.

    No Power!!


    Double check the switch in the back of the pc on the power supply. If their is a switch, you can try it in both positions. It is possible their is no switch, older compaq's are iffy. The switch will be black. Also check the 110/230 switch. I don't know what country you live in, however you may need to make sure that switch is in the appropriate spot. 110 for USA and 220/230 for UK

    Also, try unplugging your pc. Let it set for about 1 minute. Plug it back in and try again.
