My dell xps420 does not turn on, no switch power or light, i have working internal lights

there're a couple of reasons for this.. maybe the motherboard and the new power supply is incompatible.

try removing the power cables for all the drives, just leaving the graphics card and ram seated. see if you can get into the bios. if you can, means the power supply u used is not enough to power the drives.

otherwise, try removing a component at a time to see where is the problem. try to get to the bios and hear for beeps. they should be tell-tale signs.

Turned computer on and monitor instantly goes to sleep,also cant turn off the computer using button.have to use switch on power supply

Try this, unplug everything from the other board except the main hard drive, power connections, and monitor. if it does not come up, remove ram cards, leaving one stick. try again, if it is still bad swap ram sticks. If after all of this it still does not work you have a bad motherboard or processor

I have a Compaq Presario CQ-50 105NR and when I boot it up it goes to a black screen and the cursor just blinks in the top left corner. None of the LEDs are lit nor are there any beeps during start up. ...

For some reason the disk is not being registered in the BIOS. Bent pins can cause this problem. Is the disk firmly seated?
Did it quit working "suddenly" and you replaced the disk? If so, it sounds like the disk controller circuit on the mother board has gone bad.
Put the disk in a desk top and see if you can read it. (Takes special laptop cables or a special adapter. PC shops could test it.)
If you can see the disk contents, then for sure you have a problem on the mother board.

I am getting a bue screen-''unmountable boot volume'' and i dont have a disk for my compaq armada 7800

There are many reasons behind this one the data cable of the hard drive may be defective the hard drive itself may be defective or the BIOS of the mother board may be corrupted it is recommended to call a tech to resolve the issue as this is a hardware related fault.

What does "mother board compromised" mean? I had a bright house tech out and he replaced the high speed eithernet card,and told me the computer may not keep up.Now i cant get on line or it freezes up or...

motherboard compromised , from my experience, is a setting that has been trigged in the BIOS on the motherboard (ie the memory chip that saves system settings like RAM speed etc).
The trigger was umm, triggered when the PC case door was opened.
There's probably a sensor under the case door like how a car alarm goes off if someone pops the hood.
This should be able to be reset from within the BIOS, so when you turn your PC on, press Delete, or F2 or whatever your BIOS toggle button is. (it usually tells you on the first screen you get when the PC is switched on.)

Need info on bios and config

Hi wootwhoo, here is the link for your Compaq Presario 7940 Desktop 201479-001.

Everything you need is listed within this link. It's a matter of looking. Since you need help setting up your bios settings. Than the link below will help you through it. I did not find a download for the manual. (Which is what I'm used to using for guidence for setting up bios's).

Now this page/link will walk you through setting up the bios.
All you need to do is scroll down the page. Compaq has pictures to help. Without the board & all it's connected parts I can't walk you through this but I can help some.
If you get stuck you can post back here & I'll try to help you out.
Compaq is unknowing which key to press to enter your bios.
This is how it works. Just after powering on the PC start pressing the F10 key every 2 seconds. The main menu of the bios will open. If, F10 does not open you to the bios we'll have to try some other F keys. (You can only try one F ke at a time).
Try the F2 key next & than the F1 key & the F12 key. One of thses will open the main menue.
It should help you to know most of the settings will already be set to their defaults. (Like most boards are). If your not sure you can set default settings at the main menu. Save & exit. The PC will auto restart. Go back into the bios by pressing the correct F key. Normal items to set are (Time & Date) at the main menu.
You should see your cdrom listed & hard drive listed. Things you want to turn on. Audio should be set to Enable or on if you do not have a seperate sound card. Same for video. Memory & CPU settings (No settings). They usually are already set. Boot will need to be set. Normal is. Floppy Disk is first, 2 is CDROM & 3 is hard drive.
First time through a bios will be a wee bit tough. So read twice & set once. Follow Compaq's instructions.
When in doupt, ask.
