PC Not boot

Processor pIII 200mz, 32 mb, 40 GB

    On startup the screen sits on the BIOS message ("Compaq") and the data stream (OS) is not booting. All the hardware (video, mouse, keyboard) appears okay. Cross checked the drive on another computer - boots okay. When I opened the computer box the power cable to the drive was partially off / mostly on, but this could have caused some electrical issues with the mother board. In the past I had a defective data cable to the drive which I replaced and everything ran fine for 1 year until now. Ideas?

Need apower supply and hard drive for my compaq presario 1103WM. how old is this unit


It must be up to 8 years old ish as it has XP installed.

17-inch flat screen CRT monitor NEW* Intel Celeron D Processor 3252.53 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 256 KB L2 cache 256 MB DDR SDRAM CD-RW (48x32x48) 40 GB hard drive 9-in-1 memory card reader 10/100Base-T networking interfaceIntegrated graphics with 64 MB shared video memory *The new Celeron D processors are more efficient than the old Celeron processors. The New 325 D benchmarks faster than the old Celeron 2.7 GHz processor.

Almost any IDE hard drive will work, up to 540Gb and any reasonable power supply should be OK. Check ebay and also google for a power supply.
Hope that helps.

Hi ,
I assume you are under Windows XP but this will also work under Windows 7 32 bit .
You can insert a 100GB HDD without any problem . A higher capacity is risky with your type of machine and could lead to a fatal read error , meaning you couldn't boot your unit anymore .
Under a 32 bit XP system , 2GB ram is the max.
I don't recommend changing the processor with the motherboard , you could encounter conflictual issues with the rest of the unit .
Buy yourself a new pc equiped with a I5 or better with a I7 processor running under W 7 64-bit is the solution but they still are expensive .
Best regards .

Computer wont boot up


If you have one of those generic motherboards with Intel chipset, socket 478, 2 or 3 PCI slots in a mini ATX form so, don't waste your time and buy a new one. Some time ago I replaced it with a cheap Biostar P4M80-M4 and is much better.
