Good Day

This sounds like you have lost your HDD or if you have just installed a new HDD this will be the message until you install an operating system.

Kind Regards

Use ImgBurn. When burning data/music to disc. Choose 4x or lowers write speed. Faster write speeds have more chance of error. If you want the most accurate burn, I would suggest 2x. It may take a while but a chance of error is very low

if you are looking for purchasing a new battery, contact any authorised computer hardware deale. they will provide you with one.
if you intend to repair it, you should loook for authorised notebook service centres present there. the nearest service proffesional coulde be located from the company website.
repairing a battery pack seems impossible.so i would suggest buying a new one

why do this expensive first.?
Its just a desktop, (and industry standard and easy to fix)
why not a PSU first. vastly more cheap.

i cant see that video card, it has name and model number
and that matters big time if the card uses more that 75watts.
(wrong PSU for the newer faster video card is doomed)

you failed to say what the problem was before, the card.
same,or just wanted faster video for say gaming.
tell why the new card, history also matters and intents.
lets do this the easy way. a list.

the unstated monitor and number of it, never ever shows any text ever at any time.
Blank to me means that, other say blank means windows dead.
(totally opposite in facts)
1: so you push the PC cases power button,
a: the PC is silent. ? (power cord connected, and any switch hear that cord entrance(1/0) is in the 1 position = on.
b: the PC PSU fan runs now, it must or the PSU is dead.
(answers are 99% the other 1% i handle in all cases(complex)
we use a voltmeter to test power, in all cases.
c: the PSU fan blows, (looking behind it in the PSU grill.)
not packed in lint and stalled, or dead.
d: the CPU fan blows, (slide lid off eyeballs on it)
e: the CD tray ejects on command, if this all happens 12v and 5vdc are working, yes it takes more.

in each case of testing above what fails , causes me to work that angle, that path, of power and logic inside.

if the PSU fan never spins even for the magic 1 second rule.
then the PSU is bad.
the exception is if things inside the case are shorted.
shorts cause all ATX class PSU made to shut down
(stops a fire ) (some do this for any overload, overvoltage and any undervoltage condition, I call those PRIME PSU's (best)

This is normal for short.(inside)
to find shorts, we remove things from the inside if the case
called stripping PC. down.
first HDD (just power cable)
next CD (same just powercable
next the Video card, pulled, oops PSU now stay on, oops.
next all ram pulled. PC may beep due to missing ram. but power goes one. and may stop but you saw power happen.

last is the jumper test of a PSU.
we unplug the PSU. 24 pin connector.
then jumper as see here.
pin 16 to 17
pull the conn,. and psu end jump it.
turn on PSU and it must run its fan full time.
it will have all the voltages seen here.

You don't say what OS you are using but for Windows 10
Right click on the internet logo in the notification area
Select "Open network and internet settings"
Select "Wi-Fi" from list on the left
Ensure Wi-Fi is switched on and also check available networks.

Time for new computer.. Upgrades are not worth spending money. For $300 - $400 you can get laptop with 4 gig memory ringing windows 10. PS Vista is no longer supported.

for example

HP Compaq... | Answered on Mar 03, 2018

old compaq, with full service tag data wow./! 13 years old now.
XP right? 2001 to 2007, your PC did not have vista. new.
XP is dead, did you know that?

then you fail to tell what OS is running,
guess what that matters, (we know what it was new but....)
if it's XP and or vista is does, XP is dead now for 4 years.+
and worse IE is even more dead, and now banned on many web sites and is an expanding *****.

did you go to MX owned skype home page and read the minimum requirement there, first?

there are 3 issues here.
  1. XP is dead.
  2. your XP microphone be died
  3. your XP webcam is dead, all very normal now.

here is what skype said, believe it.

as you can see new skype is dead for XP
XP is a virus magnet as is its unsupported IE versions, (all)
note the tight restrictions on w10, wow.

Most likely you have a slow or dieing hard drive that is why when as you state you add correct ram upgrade the unit fails to boot.

skip the ram and replace your hard drive with a new ssd (solid state drive)


HP Compaq... | Answered on Feb 16, 2018

you most likely have a bad hard drive you need to get a new hard drive and then manually reinstall windows of your choice if you do not know how go to a shop because this job is not simple

streema.com or streama.com they can stream your local radio stations...but no guarantee, school districts are always finding new sites to block everyday, so it may be blocked in your district by now!!

HP Compaq... | Answered on Feb 09, 2018

1) Is this a laptop or a desktop?
2) What OS are you running?
3) When was the last time that it booted successfully? Did anything change then? Did you upgrade the OS? Did you upgrade the software (firmware) on the processor (Intel or AMD)?
4) Do you see anything on the screen? Compaq logo? Boot options?
