Question about Compaq PC Desktops

1 Answer

I just added additional DRAM to my Compaq Presario 6000 desktop, and now the monitor is not getting any power. The power light on the left side of the CPU lights up, but the light on the right side does not. I took the new DRAM out, and I still have the same problem. It's not the monitor, it works fine. Anyone know what's wrong?

Green power light doesn't turn on but the yellow light goes on


In your added problem along with more information now, you have witnessed what I have previously stated;

Bad Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.
Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

1) IF, all of the LED lights were on at once, they would use less than 1 Watt of power.

2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.

3) A typical processor can use from 51 to 125 Watts of power. Just depends on what Processor it is.

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short )

The Processor in a Compaq Presario SR5110NX Desktop PC is an

Depending on what Core it is based on, (ClawHammer, Newcastle, Winchester, Venice, Manchester, etc), it can use up to 67 Watts, or 89 Watts.

No Processor operating, No computer.
Replace the Power Supply.

{ Also clean out the inside of the computer with a can of compressed air for computers, on a regular basis as needed. It may be every two weeks, if the situation calls for it.
Remember to follow Anti-Static Precautions, BEFORE reaching inside the computer.

N-E-V-E-R use a vacuum cleaner to clean a computer.
A vacuum cleaner produces Static electricity.

{Hold the plastic wand device sideways, over your hair with the vacuum turned on. Your hair will stand up from the Static.
Have seen many a so-called computer tech fry a unit using a vacuum }

Solid Red light on hp compaq 6000, instead of green light. Does any one know why?


Yes, it means a bad Power Supply.

Try cleaning out the inside of the computer first. Use a can or two of compressed air for computers.
{Computer unplugged from power, Anti-Static Precautions observed}

How to open the computer case:

1) Work on a table
2) Computer unplugged from power
3) All cables removed from desktop unit
4) Observe Anti-Static Precautions

Under the Service and information heading, left-click on the second file listed -

Maintenance and Service Guide: HP Compaq 6000 Pro Microtower Business PC

(11Sep2009 / PDF / 11.15MB )

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name it may take up to 30 seconds before the first page comes up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

{Took 22 seconds for the first page to come up, and no additional download time. Using medium speed DSL connection }

In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on the + sign to the left of - Removal and Replacement Procedures Small Form Factor (SFF) Chassis, then on Access Panel

Or go to Page 123 using the page number box at the top, and the Down Arrow.

Clean the inside of the computer out. pay special attention to the Processor Fan, and the finned Heatsink under it.
Also use the plastic straw in the Power Supply's ventilation holes. Try to clean out the inside of the Power Supply the best you can.

(Hold onto the plastic straw with one hand, and the can of air with the other hand. If you do not, the plastic straw may come loose, and shoot inside the case of the Power Supply)

After cleaning close the computer case, reattach all cables, plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
Then it's time to replace the Power Supply.

The exact Product Number (P/N) is on a white Service Tag. On the back of the computer, or on the side. Usually next to the Windows product key.

Not booting, blinking light


4 blinks, 1 second apart is a power supply overload. Have the power supply replaced if you haven't added any additional hardware lately. But also make sure your hard drive isn't bad and pulling an overload of power. it's rare, but I have seem that happen on some western digital hard drives.
