Question about Compaq Presario SR1030NX (DW256A#ABA) PC Desktop
After completly setting up the computer after a move, it doesn't power up. The power cord is fine and the outlet it's plugged into is fine, the front power button still clicks, and we cleaned the inside, but it doesn't make a sound when we hit the power button. Everything inside seems to be in place. Any suggestions?
Have the same issue..When I shutdown or power goes out I can not power puter back up..Power LED on back of unit below cord flashes..I found if I opened up unit while plugged in and pulled main harness of of main board and slowly pluged it back in a few times LED would eventually stay on solid green and unit fires up..Have had this issue for about 1 year and really doesn't bother me anymore now that I have the trick to start...
Could be the power supply I was told but who knows..

When you turn the PC on check for any active LEDs on the front of the PC, keyboard or the back. Also check the fan on the back of the computer to see if it starts or at least moves. Are there any humming noises when you power up? If you find anything let us know so we can proceed, otherwise ?.. If there is absolutely no activity and if the machine was handled relatively well during the move I would be more inclined to suspect the PC just isn?t getting any power. -Try getting rid of any UPS or power strips and plug directly into the wall sockets. -Even if you can plug a light into the wall socket and it works that?s only a partial test. For under $5 you can buy a power socket tester which can warn you about incorrectly wired sockets (incredibly common in the States) that can affect PCs. If this doesn?t turn up anything your power supply or something else coincidentally could have died during the move. Let us know if you get to this point and we?ll continue otherwise please don?t forget to rate this posting.

Hey guys i have the same problem when i move to a new house my presario s5100nx doesnt turn on when i press the power button. I really need this computer so i toke it apart and cleaned everything. after a few weeks i said let me spin the fan in the back so i got a hair dyer and turned it maxed power and spined the fan. About one minute i just rapidly press the power button while the hair dryer is spining the fan then it will start. I been doing this for 5 months now and its annoying waking up in the morning doing this and waking up everyone lol but it fixed a 400 dollar problem lol.

I have the same problem and all the sockets work correctly, but the computer still doesn't turn on. It had a spurt for a while where when it was shut off, it would take a long time to reboot. Like I would shut it off and I had to wait about a day before it would let me power it back on. As time passed, the length of time that I had to wait increased, and now it doesn't turn on at all. The power from the outlet is good, and the LED lights on the back work, but I don't know what could be the problem. Any thoughts?
