My pal has a compaq presario sr2000. When he switches on he gets nothing on the monitor. Have swopped monitors, same problem. There appears to be no HD activity on switch on, however, if I remove the Graph Card and switch on I can see some HD activity. Presume either the G Card, HD or P. Supply has gone west but is there a quick way of identyfying the problem?
Well presumably the PSU is still working or you wouldn't get any HDD activity with or without the graphics card.You could check the graphics card in another machine if you have one or a friend's maybe.
Disconnected everything and took RAM out. Now get a 3 second beep and a seven second beep continuosly. If I put a stick of RAM back I get no beeps. It;s not the RAM (I think) as I have two sticks and have swopped 'em.
