Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

4 Answers

I have a Compaq Desktop computer. Model# DPS-250RB A. The computer was working fine the other day, Brought it to my house and tried hooking it up to a monitor and the monitor wont recieve signal. Not sure what the problem is. Could be that we tried putting in a 256mb video card to use for World of Warcraft. After this we hooked it up to a monitor and there was no signal. Took out the video card and hooked back up...still no signal. We also put in a stick of ram. It was DDR which i am almost positive that is the right kind of ram for this computer.

    As to the post from kigwa, i have tried the computer with 3 different monitors. Still nothing. I have also done what ucp-fru suggested. I will try what Darklord1 said now. Thank you all for the suggestions :)

    Also, I forgot to mention that there is a beeping noise when it turns on. I dont know if there is a problem with the mainboard or what

Hey,,

try this,
1.) unplug the system
2.) remove the memory
3.) remove the mainboard battery(cmos battery)
4.) press the power button 5 times
5.) replace the battery
6.) replace the rams
7.) boot it up
8.) enter setup
9.) load defaults then save and exit

if that works then try putting back in the graphics cardm you may need to repeat steps 1 - 9 after installing the graphics card. and pls insure the monitor is connected to the graphics card.

    Beeping sound means that the memory (rams is damaged) replace it and you'll be fine

Trying to hook up compaq presario 5000 desktop, monitor is not working correctly, it works with the old Gateway computer, so I know the monitor and cable are good


check to see if you have two ports in the back of your desktop, try the other one if you do. If not, there is most likely a loose connection.
