Compaq desktop presario w98SE

Major problem - i can't connect due to power. I accidentally unplugged it to the board base. I connect it when I have a new ethernet 10/100mbps plug and play. My media is not sounding at all either. I'm in Calgary, AB Canada.
It work when I did disconnect the ethernet and reconnect. But when I shutdown It won't restart from the power button at all.
the power wire has color and there's a spoke to plug it in which way is the one that will make use of the power button when the hardware is in the casing already.

If there is no power when inserting the ethernet card. Then the problem is card related. If you plug the card in with no other devices except the keyboard and the mouse. Then the computer should go through a Power on self test. Look at the keyboard lights and make sure they light up. If they dont then your computer is not posting due to a hardware error. Therefore I would first look at the first possible cause the ethernet card.Make sure it is seated properly. Try another PCI slot. You should have more than one.Try another ethernet card and see if the problem persist. For detailed instructions on installation try this website for your model. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07111&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=92867&lang=en

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.

Green light flashing on compaq presario - computer will not turn on


You may have a 12V ATX line (6 wires) that needs to be connected to the mobo in addition to the main power (about 20 wires). Make sure they are both connected - try again.
Remove 1 stick of memory - try again.
Swap the stick you removed with the other stick and try again.
Unplug the power switch wires from the header on the mobo - try again - make sure you write down where each wire goes. Try again.
Swap the power supply with another ATX to see if it is the power supply (PS fail more than mobos due to dust buildup).

Compaq presario desktop will not turn on


Check the power cables if it is working properly.
See if your AVR didn't blow a fuse or the switch is working and the led light are lighted or is powered on.
Test your pc's switch if it is still established contact and not unpluged from *********** board and is working properly.
Test your power supply by unpluging all plugs that is connected to your motherboard and try to short out, the green and black wire from pin 4 and 5 see picture below. Just put a small length wire at pin 4 and five and you'll be able to know if it is working just fine.

Connect it to your computer again if it is working properly.
Press the power switch.
If it still is not working, try to disassemble your processor, then press the power switch.
If it still did'nt work or still doesent turn on, then your motherboard is the broblem and needs to be replaced. Have a nice day friend, and hope this could help you analyze.

I have a Compaq Presario SR2011WM which powered down on me. I get a solid light in the back and when I hit the power button I get a solid light on the front also which will not shut off unless I unplug it....


Well, unplugging something (I'm not quite clear on what you unplugged), especially if it supplies power to the processor usually doesn't fix things. If you mean the plug that looks like http://www.pcguide.com/byop/diagrams/figure9.jpg then it helps supply power to the motherboard, and I'm not sure what unplugging it would fix but it is more likely a motherboard issue than a processor issue if unplugging it fixed the problem. Regardless because this is an older and off the shelf computer upgrading it will be difficult due to the fact that celeron's don't have the same socket type as newer processors. If it is a motherboard issue then you will need a new motherboard and a new processor for that motherboard. Essentially the easiest and most cost effective thing would be to get a new computer.

Unplug it and then blow a hairdryer at the power supply for 3 minutes. Leave the lid on, just blow the hairdryer at it from the outside. Craziest trick I ever saw.

After that, turn off hibernation. And eventually, replace your power supply.

How do I replace a power supply on a Compaq Presario SR5110NX Desktop PC


you can purchase a power supply from any computer store *********** board supports both standard IDE and Serial ATA connections, so you want a power supply that does SATA power as well. Unplug the power cord from the back of the computer. remove the cover from the case and verify that there is no green LED on the board that is lit up (if there is, there is still power on the board). unplug all connections from the current power supply, including all drive power and the large 24pin plug (actually a 4 pin plug that is combined with a 20 pin plug) on the board, then unplug the 4 pin plug near the processor. careful that the 24 pin plug and the additional 4 pin plug near the processor have latches on the side. Remove the 4 screws that hold the power supply in and remove the power supply, install new supply and reinstall the 4 screws. first plug in the 4 pin plug that connects with the 20 pin, the 4 pin plug has no latch, it is held in place by the 20 pin plug. then plug in the 20 pin plug and the 4 pin next to the processor. then plug in the drive power to all of the drives. Install the power plug at the back of the system and you should see a green LED on the board when you insert the power. replace the cover and power the system up.
