Battery to change as do not keep the time date.


Hi:
Your compaq mini tower has a coin type battery that is mounted to the motherboard that keeps the time and date. It usually is a cr2032 , but you need to take the side cover off of your tower, with the tower unplugged, and locate the battery. take note of how it is installed. It is a 3 volt lithium battery that you can buy at most stores for about $2-3 and is easy to swap out.
Give it a try, and your computer will remember after you reset everything!

Check the BIOS for temperature alarm and also check the temperatures that your CPU is reaching during a game by using a program like Hardware Monitor

Tower sounds like a siren but won't come on.


Strange indeed. Typically the only power left in a system after it is unplugged in older systems is a small battery that keeps the BIOS information. Maybe your system has it set up to warn you through the tiny system speaker that this battery is dead. If it is then the system can't start up...just as you reported.

Any other information would be helpful in diagnosing this problem.

Alarm goes off when it starts up


The alarm is a BIOS alarm. It is warning you of either a cooling fan failure or the processor getting too hot. Either way, you need to fix the problem, not just ignore it!

I would check that all the fans are running correctly and would also recommend that you give the insides of your computer case a clean out - you'll be amazed at how much dust can build up in there! This may well cure the problem.

If it is a processor temperature alarm, rather than turning it off, you may want to adjust it so it doesn't sound until a higher temp. is reached. You can adjust this from the BIOS screen, but I would check the maximum temp. that your processor is designed to run at before doing so.

To get to the BIOS screen to turn it off, press the delete key (repeatedly) while the machine is booting.

I can't tell you exactly when to find it in the BIOS, as this can vary from one computer to the next. Just navigate you way around until you find the relevant section.

**** WARNING ****

Changing settings in the BIOS can affect the computers performance, prevent it from starting, or even cause permanent damage to hardware. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, I wouldn't recommend changing things!

Hope this helps,

Matt
