Top 20 Compaq (233803-001) (233803001) KVM Switch - Page 4 Questions & Answers


thanks but............. and is and Obsolete PC. at HP and MS.
sr1902uk (England?)
  1. what OS? drivers match a OS, XP?
  2. sure some makers of mobo offer drivers that HP ended. sure.
  3. so does the unstated NIC chip maker offer drivers but not for all OS in most cases.
  4. The best way to work on old PC is run the PCI scanner(ask)
  5. identify the chip maker and model (ven=x dev=z)
  6. then we can get any driver, for any OS if the chip maker has one, and many dont. for newer OS. (and ther reverse)
  7. Finding drivers for old PC is not easy, (for me sure) but for most, it's very hard and the risk of getting virus high.!!
  8. ask how to do it, using the scanner , lacking HP support.

you have so many posts with computer issues.!
if I had that id go back to pencil and paper. LOL

what mouse, ? a USB mouse or the MOUSE pad.?>
tell what Persario it is, lots of models made.
it has model number for sure use that everytime you post
and tell what OS it running there solutions all depend that.
and what mouse you own.
my guess some Lenovo USB mouse

A Persario name is a desktop and a lamptop
it has no fixed form,, that work
answer for say a desktop, no mouse pad laptop
I guess running windows XP the virus magnet and is infected
or the mouse is bad, try doing this.
1: try that bad mouse a good pc.
2: try a good PC mouse on the bad PC.
see?? hardware is eliminated from the cause.
or if all mice fail ,that is bad Software.
top reason bad mouse driver.
but if XP , the online drivers are gone now.
so tell
what PC this is
what OS this is
and answers can focus way better. ok?

the control panel has mouse icon click that and test the mouse.
it has a click speed test there, try that,?
in device manager is the mouse driver bad>?

I suspect that file is malware. If you can download an a/v program to anther computer then install it on CD or USB drive, you can run that program and remove any malware. Restoring the system to a date prior tho the problem can work too.

Open Device Manager and revert to the earlier drivers, or just delete the device. Restart the computer and try other drivers if you're not happy with the current drivers. Don't get updated drivers from Windows Update, always download from nVidia or whatever graphics card you have. HP should have drivers intended specifically for your notebook, which takes their setup into account..

if your "F" function keys are a second function of the keys they are on there will be a key, usally located in the area of the lower left corner of your keyboard. If the "F" functions are in color, so will the key that activates them. The idea is that you hold down the Fn key while striking the selected "F" key

no PC stated, vast models made, read the service tag?
NO OS stated, XP? w10? what?
this tells the helper the YEAR, after all
a 1 year old PC is not like 20 year old PC.

Is this the windows, (which?) login screen?, you didnt say what screen it was? and if it looks NORMAL there?

sounds like the OS password wrong or the OS is corrupted to me.
getting help lacking what notebook this is , is very hard.

The HP compaq rules on notebook made after year 2006
try power on and hammering the F11 key, to get the recovery going.. (do the startup up repair first)
power on , F11 over and over until...... bingo recovery mode.
but first do you have data to backup, that is first.
some folks do , others don't, so that dictates next step. first really
;)

find the service tag on your Laptop
read it,

see all those words there, do tell.

see the tag here.

You probably have to "tell" the TV to see the monitor. In other words, there might be a VCR/DVD/VGA(computer) setting/switch on the TV menu. The TV might not find the computer automatically like a monitor does. Good luck.

thats the silly hp loop back deal (and has the F11 key active)
omg its old . 2008 but HP supports it. even on w7 (facts)
good luck with VISTA Microsoft shut down all support on VISTA, you do know that and what that means, right?
cq50-104ca if the PC will not boot, it resets over and over (reboots)
it just means the OS is dead, nothing more.
that means the HDD is bad, in some cases:
  • HDD bad, test it?
  • do the recovery? do startup file fixes?
  • do full recovery.
  • Upgrade to w7 like you should have done back jan2017?
  • ever seem you service book yet, its free, see F11 now.
  • read F11, in the book for full recovery
  • if the HDD is bad (or was) F11 too will be missing, gone!
  • if F11 is gone, then only new install disks work, fresh.
  • or from ISO to USB mem stick installed. if HDD is ok.
now the book you cant find. and was there all along, at real HP
why ask fixya and not HP forum?
the book is here. open it,press Ctrl+F(find) and find F11 and thar
she be, HP magical F11. (seen 2006 to NOW)

krta hun to aavaaj aati hain I asked google translated that,, and it fails ,why?
what language is that, welcome to the ENGLISH only forum..

tell us what works and does not;
both
this PC is now 13 years old, that be super old
in fact if I saw one run ok that old i'd be GOBSMACKED !

the sound chip on board, can play may files of audio
vast, and for sure with VLC App loaded, vast.

do windows sounds work? in control panel sounds.
does the sound chip in Device manager look ok./?
what OS you run. windows what. XP is now dead. not XP right?

this PC sold here in USA< had XP
XP has 700 + expoits. and is a virus magnet.
and XP has no support, zero
zero on HP
zero at MS.
zero. why in the world run XP, ? time to upgrade it, for sure, if true.

if the sound is 100% dead, all ways,
the look in DM , device manager.
see red or yellow marks on sound chip then the driver is missing.
or unknown, marked chips there. same.
in both cases, all cases, get the driver,
but MS or HP will help after 13 years, 17 for MS.
XP was released in 2001, and is DEAD NOW.

but we can find driver the hard way,but you need to tell
me what sound ship is there, using DM details.
VEN code
DEV code.
then drivers happen.

Tray alternative boot device using hiren's or something like. And try to check your hard disk for errors. Usually it's hard disk problem

compaq presario SR5310F

why down grade from dead, to super dead for 3 years now XP
why do that? XP is a virus magnet. (hint 2, and glowing)
your offical page is here.
on real HP site, (we are not here)
https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/Compaq-Presario-SR5300-Desktop-PC-series/3644727/model/3644732


click software
click OS
see what you get. ONLY VISTA support
now I can make it work with 1/2days labor.
but why do that? why ever use XP,
USB only works 1/2 way with XP SP3 added
and PLUG AND PLAY ON XP IS DEAD, making other 1/2 dead. for ever an ever.

if pain is your game, here is how.

drivers. ( my PCI sniffer lets me find (if possible at all) Any driver on earth. (unless reading every chip lid is fun....)

use wired Ethernet, so it works. easy.
wifi is far more complex.
best is to own the router, you have.
then login to it and set it up for wpa./wpa2
wep off.
and a nice password for wifi so others cant hack it. in the hood.
then use those credentials all all your toys. xbox, PCs and cell.
that is the best way
the access point is covered in you manual for the router
there is AP button there, you push.
the PC in question my guess is the drivers are no good.
missing wrong, or corrupted.
no PC full model stated.
no OS stated
no router stated.
so answers will be weak to wrong,.

Hit F2 or Delete during boot up and check the HDD configuration. If the drive is not shown it may be faulty.

Compaq Computers... | 93 views | 0 helpful votes


what do you want them to do, say what?
what model, Compaq.
what OS/ XP?
The USB jacks all work if you have a driver for the USB chips
loaded and the correct one to match YOU OS.
no OS stated..
as is usual here. and hopeless to ask lacking that key fact
what OS, what operating system?

this pC has service tag, with full model name and numbers
what it it? old laptop sure.
i googled your data above, I get zero hits.
so is wrong name.

is the PC missing, just messing with a motherboard,
tell the helper what lays before you , clearly and if confused photos can work. here.

Compaq Computers... | 31 views | 0 helpful votes


WOW ! NO OS STATE AT ALL, is this the virus magnet XP?or Vista.
Circa 2005 , 12 long years old.... no spring chicken this... not at all.
most are in the land fill or sent to 3rd world as punishment...LOL.
best place to send is N.Korea this PC.

V5000 , ok that is first what is it.
WIFI yes, the pain of wifi, I use it as backup only, and only on CELL phones at home. we run gigalan at home and huge media server,
runs rock solid.
but wifi is a complex topic,not something that leads its self to text box, at all.
Router fine means other PC and cells all connect and work.
so its a PC issues. only only THIS PC.
but WAIT , (that comment on newer)
my guess is the router is wisely set to WPA1 /2 encrpytion (ONLY)
and then you bop in with a old Laptop hat is only WEP only or set to that only.
wep is not secure, so we dont use that TODAY. ever.


my wild guess, 2005 with XP right,?
the 3 years now dead OS, that HP nor MS support. at all
and known virus magnet, and over 700 exploits, (many not fixed)
facts, that.
for my next trick I will attempt to find what cards for wlan is there.
you never said, so will assume it's HP part, day one part.
not modified, as all can be.. see photo below for 1 matchup.

as you saw that XP wireless agent cant see your routers
broad cast, so that means , my guess is the your settings are wrong. or wrong driver loaded. (or bad card below)

if the router is set to WPA only and your agent (client app) is set to WEP
it can't see the WPA router. and for sure never connect .

why not look in your router first, see how its setup ?t.
mine is set to wpa+ (1 or 2)
but I could set it to accept WEP+WPA/1/2/ but id never do that.
ever,
i run wpa only. for security max.
so set your client to what you have your router set to.
it is that simple if drivers good. and XP not infected as ALL ARE.


this is what came new on it. (varies by exact model pc no t stated)
it does wep. and wpa
BCM94311mcgp , knowing what is there , IS EVERYTHING.
bcm94311-wdyuj211224z2sqpp0an4hgj-5-0.jpg
MY GUESS , WRONG XP DRIVER LOADED OR CORRuPUTED.

CQ-nnnnn what is nnnnn , may Cq57 made, all different nnnnnn
QC-100,.-200.,300, 400, series
your service tag tells you the full model number.
nor the OS (unstated)
XP, VISTA, W7 or W8?
this is what was used for the full series of production runs.
and they are NOT THE SAME.
tell what BACKLIT means. LEDs dead but at least name ONE>?

Please tell the helper this.
what OS first.?
tell exactly what Backlits (lights) fail, name them.
caps lock or ? what? give examples of what fails and what you are attempting to do..
on my newer HP, there are no keyboard lamps at all
not one but the HP has back panel that glows for that.
but needs the HP software loaded to make that work
only HP software works on that feature, period.

what operating system is this.?

the CQ57-400 is the last series is this it. why must i guess?
support for it is limited to this.

ill guess 400 for you as 1 example
then ill guess w7 32b
then you see this and load all these driver.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-presario-cq57-400-notebook-pc-series/5186820

now il guess 100
here
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-presario-cq57-100-notebook-pc-series/5059083


looks like last one made was 2012 (Compaq ended in 2013 at HP)
so has support until 2022. at HP.com
load all your drivers for you PC on the HP page.
skip BIOS. (line)

the problem here is HP used 2 processors here.
Intel
and AMD
mixing drivers up is problematic. here.
takes skills to do this.
why not ask at HP do this is.
real HP forums.... BINGO?

Cannot be done since the cmos does not have a boot option from a usb device. Need a bootable cd in lieu.

NO PC stated, 1984 to 2017, 10,000 models, stated.
NO OS stated, XP what? must we guess the OS?
no posted photos, of ugly screens presented by you.
why do that? leave out the #3 most important fact.s
michean, = machine, say "PC runs great, "
no PC stated, no OS stated but it runs great but colors not.

Compaq monitor TFT-5000 ccfl
very very old monitor. 4:3 square screen old.
15 inches sized (tiny)
18 years old in fact, in dog years that be 126 years old,(lol)

in all cases of all PCs made ever,
there can be many causes, no need to guess or for me to list them ALL.
but here is the MACRO view (from afar)

Did it fail plugged in to ANOTHER GOOD PC
no, didnt fail, then,...
1: The PC graphic chip is overheated. ever clean unstated
2: PC has CPU oveheating
3: PC has power supply problems, causing chip to malf.
4: PC video card bad, or if laptop GPU chip problems.
5: PC has corrupted or wrong or virus infected Video drivers.
end.


anyone else with same problem would do tests or through it away, if bad, its has $0 zero dollar street value like this.
ever consider upgrading, to something 2010 or newer. ?
a REAL LED LCD screen. (11 years newer?????)
your screen has CCFL lamps that turn yellow old, and then go dead. yellow make white look yellow.
see?
