Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hello: I have a compaq presario desktop(SR202ONX), that is quite a few years old. We started having problems with a no signal message. I can not get it to do anything because of this message. The screen goes black. The tower light comes on and the fan runs all the time but I can not do a thing with the computer. Can you help me find out what needs to be done to solve this problem? I do not know if it can be solved, but I would like to try and find out atleast what the problem might be. Thank you for your time and consideration. Virginia

The problem is probably the graphics card itself. You will need to remove it from the PCI slot and re-seat it to see if the problem persists.Also check the DIMM slots to see if the the RAM module(s) are a bit loose. One of the most common reasons for this problem. If nothing works then do you hear the system starting up. Do you hear the windows startup sound?

I have a COMPAQ, Presario SR1055CL Desktop, that will not bootup


Hi....If the computer will not start and you hear no fans or other electrical sounds chances are the power supply has failed. If you had an electrical storm that caused the blackout and did not have a surge protector power strip it could be much worse. Check the power supply first. You can google for help in testing that supply. Good Luck Hank

I have an old 2005 compaq presario SR1000. I also have a Dell flat panel 1704FPT. I have tried hooking it up to the compaq tower and it will come on for a few seconds then a message will show saying that...


Bring up the monitor menu. There should be a button on the monitor itself. Find the signal input, change from analog to digital (DVI-D). That should take care of it.

Motherboard failure


Failure of motherboards is usually due to breaking capacitors. A few years ago a capacitor company stole the "recipe" for making capacitors from another company and tried to make their own, unfortunately they did not get the ingredients right and the capacitors started breaking after 2-3 years of use. They sold these capacitors at very cheap prices and a lot of computer companies and power supply makers bought them. This is easy to diagnose. Look for capacitors (caps) (they look like little tiny soda cans) on your motherboard (mobo). They should be perfectly flat on top and not bulged or swelling or leaking anything. The dead giveaway is the fact that you are not getting a monitor signal and if you listen to your computer as it starts up, a few of the devices may not start (hard drive, etc). A failed video card will also give you "No signal message", but the computer should sound normal when starting up. Mobos are usually expensive to replace because the computer makers have them made especially for them and only order so many. They usually do not have a lot of extras laying around. There are a few companies that will repair broken capacitor issues. Hope this explains why they can fail. They can also fail if overheated (like when a case cooling fan fails), the cpu is overclocked and not cooled down (which raises temps), the power supply fails or by lightning and power surges. Also if you add a bunch of extra components without upgrading the power supply you can suffer underpowered situations.

Compaq presario v5000 won't start or post


It's the motherboard. Check to see if yours is still under warranty even if you've had it for over a year.

HP / Compaq has recently extended their warranty period for certain models.

Warranty Check

Let me know if you have any other questions.
