Question about HP Compaq Presario SR1430NX (PS566AA) PC Desktop

3 Answers

No audio after reformating

I have a Compaq Presario SR1430NX and am running XP with service pack 1. I just had to reformat the pc because the restore disks that came with it were for and HP and would not let me use.

I have reinstalled the audio drives several times but I still have no audio and when you look in device manager, it says there are no problems and everything is woking fine. When you look at the sound, speech & audio int he control panel, it says there is nothing installed.

I also have an after market NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 graphics card installed, but that is not new and I have disbled the integrated video card.

Also, do a speaker test and assure that all connections to the speakers are working properly. Then uninstall the drivers and download them from the maker of the card and reinstall them again.

Just a shot in the dark, I'd guess you have either a Sigmatel or a SoundMax.

If SoundMax, look up on Microsoft's site KB888111.

Hi,
If there are no problems in device manager like a yellow question mark or exclamation mark on the devices, that means the other drivers are installed properly. Try to check if the speakers are ok as well. Try the speakers on another pc or device and check if it's working there just to eliminate the speakers as one of the problems.

Do you have an integrated audio?

HP Compaq Presario SR1430NX Powering On Issues...HELP!!??!??


If the power supply is "Fine" then it has to be your motherboard. Look for the capacitors around the board. They should have either a dished or flat top. If any are domed or have a powdery substance on them, they will need replacing. Or if you don't want to do this, replace the board.

Hi!
I worked with HP before, their computer hardware have what they so called "System Tattoo", this prevents the end users to change any hardware in the computer. You may try calling them at 800-474-6836. Hope this helps even a bit.

Can i get a new processor fan for my Compaq presario SR1430NX? I have a Intel Pentium 4CPU 2.93GHz processor


Yes, new fans are available online at sites like http://newegg.com, These are sold to match the processor so make sure you select one for your EXACT model, to avoid damage. These are difficult and complex to install however and I would not recommend doing it unless you are a computer expert, take it in to your local HP service provider to have the fan replaced, fans are about 15-30 dollars, so don't let them rip you off. Hope this helps.

Hi, when updating service packs; it is important in most cases to have the service pack prior to the one you want to download. “In your case; Service Pack 2.” if you are having trouble, check your computer “Basic Info” in the control panel. Check for updates; reinstall service pack 3. Thanks paul7of9

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

Cant finish loading win xp


is this a new computer (built for vista)? If so, then the most likely culprit is the driver set in XP cannot handle your hardware. so it locks when it gets to that point. Or it could be a read/write error. First try installing again, but delete all existing partitions and make new one, and when you format, do not use quick format. If that doesn't do it, you will most likely need to build a custom windows install cd to make it work. You can slip stream Service Pack 3 in, and that helps. you can also slipstream drivers for your PC into the disc so that the will be available at install time. Check out nLite, at the link below, really good package for doing this.
