Question about Compaq Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Hi there. My father lives in New Zealand and is 83 years old - he has had several computer lessons and has just bought a Compaq Presario C768TU notebook. He also purchased a Maxtor Basics external hard drive. I live in Australia and have emailed him some answers for some of the problems he has had. Would he be able to write to you if he has a problem that I can't help him with, and is there any cost involved. Thanks for your help. Please reply to me at vivanderson@hotmail.com

In 2001 i bought a compaq desktop computer model number 126459554a-6262 monitor serial number 3D211KK1123HY i am trying to find how much it would coast to replaced it it got damaged


http://www.google.com/#q=compaq+presario&hl=en&prmd=ivnsr&source=lnms&tbs=shop:1&ei=jF5kTYepIIe-tgePtrm5DA&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=5&sqi=2&ved=0CCQQ_AUoBA&biw=1004&bih=583&bav=on.1,or.&fp=593e0cc39af96e6f

This is a google search for Compaq Presario. Mostly Laptops come up. Start from $300 to about 450..

Go to any computer store and look around.. Or shop online, Amazon.com, tigerdirect.com, frys.com Or follow any of the links from the search above.

In general you can buy a new computer for about 300 to 500 $ Will be much better than the 10 year old you have now.
EBay is a way to go, but that needs more care and knowledge.

My monitor has kicked into sleep mode and won't "wake up".


Unplug all the Cables from Compaq Presario 5103 CL and leave the Keyboard, mouse and monitor cable pluged in.

Now make sure the power cable of the monitor should be pluged in and the power cable of the tower should be pluged in.

Now to check if the montor is fine just unplug the video cable only which will show no input signal on the screen. If it shows this signal the monitor is fine. Plug back in the video cable.

If the monitor is going to sleep mode it might be possible that the old computer ( Compaq Presario 5103 CL ) is in stand by mode. hit any key on the keyboard and it should come back .

If it is not in the stand by mode then do one thing. Check the same monitor with the new computer. If it is working. Perfect ..!

Do one thing now ..!

Unplug all the cables from your old system and then press the power button for 30 sec and let it go. Now plug the keyboard, mouse and the monitor try again.
If it works Perfect. If not ..!

Then you need to open the tower and check on the processor FAN is it running..? If its not running you will not get the display as the fan is responsible for the display on the screen. Otherwise...!

Check the Tower possibly the Tower is not getting the power.

Try these steps and let me know If it works

I bought this computer 5-6 years ago. And it has been in the box since. Is it capable of wireless connection


It is not wireless capable out of the box. However, it has 2 free PCI slots for an internal wireless card and several USB ports for a USB wireless adapter.

I hope this helps.

Modem front panel


Hi Bill,
It,s a 15 in 1 Memory Card reader.
These are used to read SD/MMC et,c memory cards.
So that you can transfer Pictures et,c. From a digital Camera Or Similar. Directly to Your PC.
to view an inserted memory card. they usually appear as device letters, in my computer. If C:/ is the Hard-Disk. E:/ backup ( Partition Of Hard-disk ) F:/ DVD drive. Then G:/ H:/ I:/ would all be designated to the 15 in 1 card reader.

Hope this helps.

A new motherboard for a old compaq presario 5240


You will need a new case and a new power supply. I would replace the memory as well.

Compaq had a tendency to make cases to only fit their boards back then. Youre better off building a new unit and starting over again.

No Power!!


Double check the switch in the back of the pc on the power supply. If their is a switch, you can try it in both positions. It is possible their is no switch, older compaq's are iffy. The switch will be black. Also check the 110/230 switch. I don't know what country you live in, however you may need to make sure that switch is in the appropriate spot. 110 for USA and 220/230 for UK

Also, try unplugging your pc. Let it set for about 1 minute. Plug it back in and try again.
