More than likely it is your power supply that is bad. However, if the location where you stored it had the potential of being damp and humid, then you may need to replace the motherboard.

To replace the power supply, first you need to open your case and look for the power supply. It is the device that you plug the power cord, from the wall, into. Remove the power supply and read the label to find out the wattage, then replace with a power supply that has similar wattage. You also need to pay attention to the form factor. If you have a standard sized tower, you will probably need and ATX or micro-ATX.

Is a compaq presario 5000/8000 quick restore cd compatible with a compaq presario 2175us laptop?


I guess not. Drivers for compaq presario 5000/8000, are not the same as those for a compaq presario 2175us laptop. Now, actually that "notebook" looks to me rather outdated. You won't lose anything by trying. Worst case, format hard drive and install Windows XP SP3. Try to search internet for missing drivers.

Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

I have a compaq desktop computer and when i plug the keyboard in the lights blink but it want work


If the 'plug' is round, the keyboard needs to be plugged into the round PS/2 port that is purple. Then reboot your computer. PS/2 devices were not intended to be plugged in when the power is on, thus the reboot or power off, power on. USB devices can be plugged in while the power is on, but may take a minute or two while your operating system loads the appropriate drivers for your device. -DellTech1

How do i remove my compaq presario 2200's hard drive?


The Compaq Presario line is one of the longest-running series of computers, originating in 1993 and remaining in production even after the purchase of Compaq by HP. Because of this, many Compaq Presario desktops have required that some of their parts be upgraded or replaced because of the wear that they have received over years of standard use. One of the more commonly replaced Presario desktop components is the hard drives, especially given how much hard drivemag-glass_10x10.gif storage capacity has increased since the Compaq Presario line was introduced. Replacing a hard drive in a Compaq Presario desktop isn't difficult, and can usually be done in a matter of minutes even for users who aren't familiar with computer upgrades.
structions
  1. Step 1Remove the screws holding the left side panel of the computer on, then slide the panel back to remove it. Set both the panel and the screws aside so that you can put the panel back in place once the hard drive has been replaced.
  2. Step 2Unplug the ATA (wide, flat and usually gray) or SATA (thicker, thin and red) data cable and the power cable from the back of the hard drive that is currently in the Compaq Presario. Move the cables so that they will be out of the way, but make sure that they will still be easily accessible to you so that you can plug them into the new hard drive.

Graphic card for compaq 8ooo series


I'm assuming it's a Compaq Presario 8000. The 8000 series has several sub-models such as the 8000T, 8000A, etc. The 8000A has several sub-sub-models.

The 8000T has an 8x AGP slot so you will be limited to either a PCI or AGP 8x video card.

You haven't stated your budget or what kind of games you play (solitaire or Word of Warcraft, etc...).

This card is the top rated AGP video card on NewEgg:
