Good Morning!

and wish you a Happy New Year2011.

1. Visual checkup of the Motherboard: See for any defective capacitors on the board near Processor. A defective capacitor will have a tapered surface and a good one will be flat, on the top. You need to service motherboard. Most of the motherboards carry 3-years warranty.


My system only boots as - asian_snake_0.jpg

2. RAM problem: try to put your RAM chips in another slot if vacant. if you have two slots and both are occupied, then try starting system, by placing one RAM at a time and in each slot alternately.
If any combination works then you can make out if and whether your RAM or its slot is faulty.

3. Hanging due to overheating: Before you get the message "Press F1....", pres PAUSE key several times, it should halt the process and the message will not be displayed. This will make sure that the system is halted by pressing the PAUSE Key. After one minute, release pause by pressing any other key and see if you can move further. There may be two possibilities . . .

a) If you are still in the same position, where you have paused the system. The system is halted due to CPU over-heating. Clean the CPU fan with blower or a vacuum cleaner. See, if all of the locks of the CPU FAN and the heat-sink are intact. If the fan itself is not rotating, check for the fan cable and if it is OK, then try replacing CPU Fan.

b) You have reached the same point where it used to stuck before, i.e. at "Press F1...". Now this means your system has halted while detecting other peripherals or add-on cards.

i. HARDDISK: Most possible cause is your HARDDISK is making "click-click" sound and not getting detected. Switch off system and remove all HDD cables (Power and Data both). Start your system and see if you get any message like "insert system disk" this means there is problem with your HARDDISK. the same problem may be caused due to CDROMs. try same and try again.

ii. SMPS POWER SUPPLY: This symptom may be caused due to inadequate power supply. You can change SMPS and make sure if the problem is due to power supply.

iii. ADD-ON CARDS: Remove any add-on card like, Sound card, Graphics card, Modem and switch on the system. if system starts, then turn-off PC. Try placing one card at a time. and start system to make out which card is making the problem.

If the problem remains, get back to us.

Have a nice day!

usb or ps2 keyboard ? might need to be enabled in BIOS

If you want to use a USB keyboard to access Windows command prompt options, make changes in the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System), or to operate legacy operating systems, you must enable support for the device inside the BIOS.

Shut down the computer and disconnect the USB keyboard. Connect a PS/2 keyboard to the PS/2 connector port on the rear of the computer. Turn on the computer and press the "Delete" key several times as soon as you see the initial boot or company logo screen. Wait for the main BIOS setup screen to appear. Press the right or left arrow keys to move the cursor to the "Advanced" or "Advanced Settings" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Move the cursor to the "Integrated Peripherals" or "Peripheral Configuration" menu option. Press the "Enter" key. Press the down-arrow key to navigate to the "USB Controllers" option. Press the "+" or "-" key to change the menu option to "Enabled." Move the cursor to the "USB Legacy Support" or "USB Legacy Function" field. Press the "+" key repeatedly until the value option changes to "Enabled." Press the "F10" key to save changes to the BIOS settings and exit the setup utility. Wait until the computer begins to restart and then press the power button and hold it for approximately four or five seconds. The computer shuts down completely. Unplug the PS/2 keyboard from the computer and set it aside. Reconnect the USB keyboard restart the computer. As soon as you see the initial boot screen, tap the "Delete" key several times and wait for the BIOS setup screen to appear.

Enable PS2 & USB in BIOS You can enable PS2 and USB settings in BIOS by entering the BIOS setup screen when the computer boots. You will need to changes to the appropriate settings in this screen. The exact procedures vary by system, but there are a few common methods that may work if the motherboard manual is not available for guidance. The general procedure is the same for any modern computer system, but the menu arrangement and keystrokes to enter the setup program can vary greatly from one machine to the next. Power on or restart the computer and watch the initial boot screen to find the keystroke required to enter BIOS setup. This is often shown at the bottom of the screen. Typical keystrokes include pressing the "F1," "F2," "F9," "F10" or "Del" key. Press this key when the prompt appears on the screen. You can find the proper key in the computer's motherboard manual or on the website of the motherboard or computer manufacturer. Enter the BIOS setup screen and look for the "Advanced" or "Onboard Device Configuration" menu. Use the arrows to select your choice and press "Enter." Change the settings for the PS2 port by moving the menu choice to the "PS2" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with the options to enable or disable the PS2 ports. Select "Enabled." You can also use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the PS2 port. Change the settings for the USB port by moving the menu choice to the "USB" setting. Press "Enter" to bring up a smaller menu with options to enable or disable the USB ports. Select "Enabled." Alternatively, use the arrow keys or the plus key to change the current selection from "Disabled" to "Enabled" in order to enable the USB port. Save the settings and exit by pressing "F10" or using the "Esc" key to back out of the current menu. Choose to save and exit from the main menu if needed. Follow any additional instructions on the screen to save or navigate the menus. Hope this helps.

I want to know how to restore mr presario compaq sr1720nx back to factory settings


There are multiple instances when you would want to wipe your PC's memory clean and reset it to the factory defaults.


Called "formatting," it is often the last-ditch effort to restore a PC to functionality.

You will also have to format your PC if it gets crippled by viruses.


Although these instructions are for the Compaq Presario, the steps are essentially the same for all Windows based PCs. Be sure that you want to delete everything this process is irreversible.


Back up any data that you want to keep by saving it to removable media, such as external hard drives, flash drives, DVD-R, etc.

Unplug all peripheral devices, except for the keyboard and mouse.


Turn on the computer. As the computer is starting, repeatedly press F1 to initiate the recovery process.

When the BIOS setup screen appears, press the right arrow key to select "Boot".


Press the down arrow key to select "Boot Device Priority" and press "Enter".

Press the down arrow key to select "CD-ROM" and press "+" to move it to the top of the list.


Open the CD-ROM tray, and insert the system recovery disk.

Exit the BIOS setup by pressing "F10". Be sure to select "Save Changes and Exit".


System recovery should initiate. If it does not, and the PC loads Windows, then you have either failed to set the CD-ROM at the top of the boot priority list or you exited the BIOS setup without saving.


Press "R" to begin the recovery process.

When prompted, select "Full System Recovery".


Restart the computer when the process has completed.


Hope this helps.
