I have a Presario X1050, not sure if they are similar. Remove the screws from the bottom, carefully remove the keyboard with a small flat head screwdriver. You'll find many screws hidden by small plastic covers and rubber feet that will all need to be removed with the screwdriver. You may have to remove the display to get inside the laptop. Ultimately though, the power supply is actually external included on the power cable.

"computer turns on and off at will"
May be a wattage issue considering that you replaced the power supply. The power supply may no be providing enough power to the Compaq Presario 6370US, you must have at least a 400 Watt Power Supply to help the computer run. Also, check to see if all your internal fans are working, i can also an overheating issue.

Green light in rear flashing won't part up


The green light flashing is a diagnostic LED light, telling you there is a power failure.
More specifically a bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

The Power Supply used in a Compaq Presario SR1010Z desktop computer, is a 300 Watt unit, and is an ATX form factor.

[ATX form factor for a Power Supply, denotes the size of the Power Supply case, and the shape.
It is approximately 6 inches Long, 6 inches Wide, and 3-1/2 inches Tall.
The ATX form factor for a Power Supply is used in over 90 percent of the personal computers out there, and is as readily available as the air we breathe]

Usually, HP uses one of three generic Power Supply manufacturers.
1) Bestec
2) Delta
3) HiPro

All are low quality Power Supply manufacturers.

This is HP Support, and the main menu page for the Compaq Presario SR1010Z desktop computer,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=1146324&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=7&submit.x=6&lang=en&cc=us

If you click on Manuals, then on Upgrading and Servicing Guide on the following page, there are instructions on how to open your computer case.

This is instructions on how to replace a Power Supply, from HP Support,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01356113&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=3548196

(It's for a Pavilion a6230n desktop computer, but after you open the computer case of your Compaq Presario SR1010Z, the instructions are the same)

What Power Supply would I recommend?
There are 100's to chose from.
This is but one example,

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3276575&CatId=1078

Chosen because;

1) Maximum wattage is rated at 450 Watts.

A computer ONLY uses the power it needs, and NO more.
Wouldn't matter if you had a 10,000 Watt power supply, (No such thing. An exaggeration), if your computer only needs 100 Watts, it would only use 100 Watts.
(Surfing the internet typically uses 100 watts)

2) Has all the power cables you'll need, and more. Tie up the power cables you do not need. (Use plastic ties, Not wire, or bread wrapper ties)

3) 24 Amperes (24A) on the 12 volt power rail.

4) 135mm cooling fan.
The cooling fan on the Power Supply you have now is 80mm.

A larger fan turns slower. Produces as much air as a smaller fan, (Or more), but makes less noise.
Less wear on the fan's bearings also.

5) Is an ATX form factor Power Supply.

6) It's 80 percent efficient, compared to the 60 percent efficient Power Supply you have now.
(That is, if it was working)

Compaq Presario keeps rebooting


If you get a power supply for a Compaq it needs to be a special power supply that will fit into the compaq case. There are no uninteruptable power supplies that install inside the case. There are always several compaq power supplies on sale on Ebay with a Buy it Now option

Compaq presario power supply


You probably need a new power supply. Check the capacitors inside the power supply, they're probably popped. If they're not popped, bring it to a computer repair shop and have them test it. Your board could be bad, too.

A new motherboard for a old compaq presario 5240


You will need a new case and a new power supply. I would replace the memory as well.

Compaq had a tendency to make cases to only fit their boards back then. Youre better off building a new unit and starting over again.
