The only cables needed are the video, keyboard, mouse and power. Use the safe mode start and from the results U can figure out what is missing with the SCSI. The SCSI is an input/output device card. U probably have only one device that it will use, The connector will not fit any other connector.

My compaq desktop computer and keyboard are messed up, suddenly every letter i enter is a number i am using windows xp


I think it's probably the keyboard layout. Try going to Start->Settings->Control Panel and double click on Regional and Language Options. Make sure the Regional Options tab is set to English. Then go to the Languages tab and click on Details button. Make sure that the Keyboard has US under it.

My presario m2000 will turn on but comes up with a screen


This is happening because you're not turning the computer off properly, make sure everytime you turn your computer off you go to
Start menu
Shut down.

You need to select start windows normally.
Safe mode will help you with some otherthings
just make sure of turning the pc off properly ;)

My Compaq desktop computer has just recently started rebooting itself. I just added some RAM but its fairly easy to do so I don't feel I messed anything up installing it... Ideas?


Yeah dude, I had the same problem with my DELL. If you install more ram, sometimes (even though it has the slots) the computer can't handle it. Did you try removing the ram you added? It may work. Other thing is that you may have loose cables from the power supply.

Unplug power cable from of the PC. Then hold power button in for 30 seconds, this will drain the capacitors, then plug back in the power cable see if this helps, if not could power supply, or video card.
