In case it has no warranty
Does the power light blink
if it doesnt then try it in another power socket or try another power cable

if the light blinks unplug it open its cover, remove its ram chip try powering it without ram, then put the ram chip back. i think it will power now.

if the above does nt work for you please

How can i add speed to my compaq presario sr5210nx with vista


The best way to add speed would be to upgrade the RAM on your PC. Your motherboard supports up to 2GB of RAM. If the PC that you can take parts from Has 2GB of 240-pin DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300) then, you can swap those modules.

Otherwise, you can buy them at the link provided below:

RAM is the best way to breath new life into an older PC.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

Gigaware optical wireless mouse - does not work


Sounds like a Ebay sold mouse with non matching receiver to mouse.
Best laptop wireless mouse to buy in my opinion is Logitech VX Nano from Staples or some store like it.Work wonderful and battery life excellent. Windows Xp,Vista,Windows7 install the driver auto for you. Don't need the cd at all

Have Windows ME,seems to be outdated. Do not make software for it anymore. Would like to upgrade to Vista.Can't hook up anything to it. Have to be Vista or XP. Which is better for a Compaq Presario 5000


The Compaq Presario 5000 is not powerful enough to run Vista so XP is your best bet. I assume you have the standard 512MB RAM which will be fine for XP Once you outgrow that you'll need to go for more powerful hardware. By that time the new Windows 7 should have been officially released.

No software


You will need to install Windows XP or Vista by putting a Windows XP or Vista disk into the drive and then restarting the computer and running the cd. You can buy Windows Vista at any store that primarily carries computers, such as Best Buy.

If not try and install the drivers for sound ,if the other speakers work ,try and check the compatibility of the speakers with he new system and windows vista.
The best thing is get in touch with the hardware vendor from whomsoever you bought this and they will let you know about the compatibility and if its the drivers and other support you can visit

Problem in closing window of any internet explorer screen with Windows Vista Home Premium


I would recommend you to back all your work up, then with the use of the restore cds, re-build your laptop. Then see if you get the same problem. If you do, then you need to send the laptop back

Compac deskpro Pentium 111 - 600


I'm not completely sure on what you are exactly asking here, but I'll do the best I can. If you have the Recovery CD, you need to boot from the CD and run the Recovery. When you go to do the recovery you will have two options, the normal recovery or the destructive recovery. If there is nothing important and everything can be wiped, run a destructive, but if you need everything run the other one. If you do not have a Recovery CD but have a Windows Vista disk that matches the version on your computer (IE: Windows Vista Home 32 bit is on your computer and you have a Windows Vista Home 32 bit disk) and you DO NOT need anything saved, just reinstall Windows. There is a product key for Vista on the sticker attached to your case. If you have neither, then you can probably get a new recovery disk by contacting HP (since they bought out Compaq). If you can not get a new Recovery CD, you will need to go out and buy a new copy of Windows Vista.
