Question about HP Pavilion 523n (P9851AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

I have a compaq presario desk top Win 95 ... I know it's old but up until yesterday it worked just fine. I turned it in and it just came up with "Non-System disk or disk error Replace and strike any key when ready". I didn't have any disk in any of the drives. Today I found the Emergency Startup disk and it pulled up like it was going to work ... it said restore prev. I clicked that ... it restarted and then went right back to the error message.

Can I insall window 8 os into my compaq presario sr1820nx 64 pc


You have to be brain dead to want to install this OS in your machine.

It is terrible. Stay with Win 7 or wait a year and then try win 10 after the bugs have been eliminated.

Why won't my COMPAQ PRESARIO SR2032X desk top


Please turn off the computer, start hitting F8 at the start-up and then choose last known good configuration. If this does not work, choose Safe mode options.
If still does not work, please try to restore the computer to factory settings. You can try to hit F11 or F10 at the startup to initiate recovery.
If not working, please tell me what error message you get on the screen.

I have a compaq presario s3040se desktop the monitor quit


Try turning on the monitor before the Compaq system box, if Win is doing what it should, it will 'find' a 'new device' and reinstall the drivers for it. It may not look right but you can change the resolution after it boots up.

How do I get all my old info, pics, documents and all stuff saved from my old desk top computer compaq presario 5700n windows 98 second edition so i can put it on my lap top, my flash drive won't work on...


Take the hard drive out and get someone knowledgeable to put it in their system as a slave drive. Then plug your flash drive into their system and copy all the files to it. I'd say this is the fastest and easiest solution to the problem. You could always network it to another computer and transfer the files also.

Use the HDD from my old Compaq Presario as a back-up storage disc


Yes it is possible.
a) No precautions needed except the normal grounding you always do when working on computer components.
b) Yes, make sure your jumpers on BOTH drives are set - one to master and one to slave. The new drive does not have to go on the same cable as the old drive but no matter which cable you put it on make sure the jumpers are set for both devices on the cable.

My desk top


Yes, the CMOS battery is replaceable, and easily so. Just remove the old one, go down to an electronics shop, get a similar battery and replace it.
Unfortunately, we just provide online help, and cannot physically come there and do this for you.
Here are two online tutorials that explain the procedure in detail:

Hope that helps! And please dont forget to rate this solution as a Fixya if it helped you in any way.

Cheers!
