I have the same SR1050NX compaq computer with the same startup problem. I suspect this from a code seeded in the system, so performed the system recovery for several times. The problem gradually came back, automatic shutting down with loger interval. I thought the bug is in the recovery system. But the floppy drive in the cmos is disabled without choice to be activated. So, I couldn't perform FDISK at DOS mode. For this computer, I wonder anyone knows how to activate the drive for boot order besides through the setup window.

Thanks very much.

Will a AMD Athlon 64 processor work in a Compaq Presario SR1050NX Desktop? My old processor Died and I purchased one of these off of Ebay, now just want to make sure it will work...


No Donnie, the motherboard for the Compaq Presario SR1050NX won't support an AMD Athlon 64 processor.

The reason why is;
A) The Processor socket on the SR1050NX's motherboard is a Socket A. (Also known as Socket 462)

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
Look to the right of the CPU heading:
Socket A (Processor socket)

This is the Socket A processor socket used on your motherboard,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_A

You can click on the photo of the Socket A processor socket, to the upper Right, to enlarge.

The AMD Athlon 64 line of processors came out after the Socket A, and used the Socket 939 first.
Then on to the Socket AM2.
(Socket 940 for some models)

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

Hi, when i plug in the power cord from the wall to the desktop the power button does not turn it on but the little green light in the back of the unit is blinking? how to fix this?


Hi, the green light I believe is just your networking socket. The fact nothing happens when you try turning on your PC could be serious. You will to take your PC in for repair, as this is not something I can diagnose without seeing the PC. Sorry this is not a straight forward answere.

HP/Compaq has had alot of power supply issues with this series of computers. Do you have another power supply you can try in this system? If the light is flashing rapidly, it is usually a power supply. Fairly cheap and easy to replace.
