Hp compaq 6200 not starting


A few things can go wrong when you are performing a computer upgrade of any kind, because during an upgrade, you remove and install parts, and it's easy for something to come loose, which may prevent the computer from starting.


Open the computer case, unscrew the video card and lift it out.

Make sure you move any release tabs before getting the video card out.


Put the video card back in place.

Check the nearby components, and make sure everything, especially the memory, is securely in place.


Close the cover and try to start the computer.

If it still doesn't start, replace the new card with the old card and check again.


If the computer starts with the old card, the new card is likely bad.

If it doesn't start with the old card, you may have shorted out the power supply and need to replace the power supply, but this is rare.


The hardware that you are trying to access is damaged or failing.


The device drivers for the hardware are faulty or incompatible.


There is a connection problem such as a bad cable

for internal hard drives


Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA


the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a

secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide


this will be the first to fail


Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty


or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error.


Hope this helps

Memory upgrade on gx280 beeps on boot but doesn't start. memory beeps 1 234 5 6


When your computer emits beeps when you power on the computer, it's usually means that you have a memory issue. Try re-seating the memory modules and power on the computer. If you have more the one module, insert one at a time and power on the computer. The other issue is if that model supports 4 gig memory.

No power , computer will not turn on


Hi, IF the system is not turning on any more, try removing the power cable, then press the power button for 10 seconds. then try to power it on again . If it is still not powering up there could be an issue wiht the power supply of the computer. But if it start to turn on, like showing the Sony logo then windows but not going to the desktop. you can try to log on using safemode. you can go there by pressing F8 on the keyboard after turning on the computer. If it still not turning on even on safe mode. there couldbe an issue with the operating system of the computer and needs to be reinstalled.
Thank you for using Fixya, your recommendation is highly appreciated for the free support.

Hi,
It seems to be BIOS password, if you don't remember or don't have the BIOS password you have to reset the password by opening your CPU cover and removing the CMOS coin battery, this will reset the BIOS password but dont forget to return back the battery and start using your PC.

I believe you have used the wrong type of CMOS battery. Try putting the old one back in and see if it will boot. If not the CMOS NAND chip may be broken. If this is the case contact Dell and order a new one.

We went away forb the weekend. I put my computer in a hibernate mode. Now I can not start it.


The best way to fix this problem is to unplug the computer. Then try to restart the computer. If this doesn't fix the problem the best thing that you could do is open up the computer. Take a look at the motherboard, and find a button cell battery on the motherboard. Remove the button cell battery for 10 seconds and then put it back. If this does not fix the problem then take a look at power button and see if it is connected to the motherboard. If this does not fix the problem the other problem could be a bad power supply, which you would have to order a new power supply from newegg.com which would be the best price and install it.

Gateway laptop wont connect to power


The only thing you can really do in this case is call gateway and see if they can repair this. it seems like something internal. Hopefully the computers are still under warranty. Sorry for the bad news.
