Question about Compaq Presario SR1030NX (DW256A#ABA) PC Desktop
Powers on fine, but does not go into startup sequence - monitor remains blank and hard drive activity light is yellow (amber). I hold the power button down to shut down, wait a few minutes and try again - same thing happens, except now I can a beep (as if the keyboard was disconnected), but still nothing on the monitor indicating a bootup. Third time's the charm right? - fiddle with all the plug ins in the back - power, monitor etc. and try again - this time success and hd activity light is green, but does occassionally go yellow which seems to put a hiccup in the startup process. Is my hard drive going bad?
Sounds like the power supply or motherboard is biting the dust. U may consider power off, open case and clean out the dirt, check U'r connections and if the power supply smells, replace it.
Else replace the pc. When the power supply dies, it usually stresses the motherboard out and it dies later, sooner.
