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)

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....)


Compaq Computers... | Answered on Aug 14, 2017

Might be worth trying the device manager to see if a driver is lurking on the internet somewhere.

If not it should be possible to update your sound card. Inserting a card into an expansion slot should switch off any integrated audio.

this is an english only forum.
google translate works, try that?


why do that, what caused you to start playing with processors.
you can NOT just throw in any processor you want
the HP documents long gone now on this old old relic PC
tells you what processors this PC supports.
usually just a one class and just 5 or so in a class.
if you google your PC you find these words

: Intel 5 Series (Pentium 4)
see that 5 there, only this series works and only those allowed
by HP in that series work.
no boot
why not put the PC back as you found it.
the post, why does not PC not boot and know its not the processor 99.99% of the time .
step 1 is power, do you have full DC power out of you PSU
2 yes, does the monitor test out ok on other PC.
3: does the BIOS screens work.
yes,yes and yes, means the HDD software is corrupted or or the HDD is dead.

to test any HDD I use Knoppix live DVD to test it.

i see this too
there are 4 PCs with that model , the service tag shows p/n::
this code tells the helper what motherboard is there and what processors are used.
ok i found the page that shows how to decode the p/n on service tag.
old old lost book, see code 560 there, ? bingo.

XP sure.
we are not HP (compaq ) why not ask at HP forum real for 1000x better and faster answers, yah?

the correct drivers were at HP support page, after 10 years,
they drop support. XP is dead so Microsoft Plug in play is now dead.
as is VISTA this year.
if at wits end, I do this. (ask) how.
what I do is use PCI scanner to learn what chips is there SOUND.
then go to the makers site and get it from them, on legacy machines
that is all you can do.

You didnt buy the HP media kit so only this is found.

ok you luck out today, its 2008 machine 1 more year and its gone
here is the VISTA sound/audio driver.


why not look at HP first. ?

double posted why, read other post
there is reason to do 2 posts, 1 problem ever.
no lamps stated, ether,

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Aug 03, 2017

never post personal data here, please.
country is great, I applaud you, me in texas.
I used to work for Philips Semi. so... state side long ago, intel before that for 7 years.

but we need the Service tag model to know what you have.
or all answers are wrong,. in most cases. (oops me wrong)
only XP (newest) asks for F6 floppy, time to upgrade to w7. for sure.
i guess you missed all that bad news in UK
with the XP virus taking down the hospitals there. sad to watch
we are below 1% XP now in usa and falling like rock.
(not counting USA MIL)
ITS DOS 3. right?

the date is set in BIOS, easy, (me wrong hard takes a setup prog)
but the BIOS CMOS NVRAM coin cell battery must be good
and it bet you %100 its not. over 5 years no, 7-10 never good.

the only floppies are found used, disks and drives
there is a USB loopy drive sold, that works. if usb ports are there and work.
is said PC for personal use,or for CNC mill.
usage is important, in all cases. some are used as toy
other on the net,
others only for Word 95.
the PC has drivers at the HP site, i can link you but only with the red arrow data on the tag below.
btw: we are not HP.

DOS 3? 6?
what os, windows 95/98/w2k/xp/vista/w7/8/10, freedos, o/s2/
XP was the last to ask F6 at install. is that it?
F6 is for drivers. not supported THEN.

omg, i even repaired those long long ago, thanks for the memories.
suit case PC,


running DOS ! 3?
wow, why are you doing this for a museum?
12 whole megaherz then, and 640k of ram Gill Bates said was plenty . we ran WORD STAR THEN !

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 30, 2017

w8000 a very old PC not supported by HP.
windows 2000 support ended like 15 years ago.. W2k. is gone. w2k only runs on very old pcs with very old ACPI
(power controls is that)

this PC is only supported with XP
never 2000.
HP tells you that if you looked.
park the 2000 disk or use it as frezzbee. IMO


id get w7 disk and use that, it might work.
but will cost you a license from MS,
about 5 times the value of w8000

why not just go here, and get used $20 w7 pc
save a bundle of case and grief messing with any legacy junk....avoid legacy junk and win.


a usa answers.... always...

old COMPAQ day
legaL ( they meant valid,)
if you read the service manual, on you old PC. from HP
it shows like 50 keyboard for 50 countries.
this forum you are on is USA forum based in PR. of CALIF.
the keys for USA characters are valid. not others.
a to z and simple punctuation. and zero to 9 and such.
this is called (IT-101) a character set.
or caps if the mood suits you.
please type a service related question
SR2129UK running Vista my guess running Spanish keyboard? with accent keys, not valid.
use only pure English keys. (UK keys ok)
be advised, i've nerver see the UK version of this PC.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 22, 2017

why ask here, and not at hp. how odd that.....
this is not HP its a public chat box.
here is the correct place to ask, (for SURE)


Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 19, 2017

buy a 20 year new PC for $20?

its junk. (sorry, all this is)
AGP is a junk PC.
sorry but why play with old old iron like this/

youre not clear on the target system!
post the PC under test, full model
or its service tag model.

our post sounds like you are mixing parts between to PCs

not sure. ill attempt to decode that to English
long hand. form... i will try and fail.
HP ProLiant ML330 Base ATA Module 230541-001
that is relic. year 2001? 16 YEARS OLD?

its and old IDE, PATA drive controller,why use this?
PATA is DEAD tech.
you can not put a Proliant card in any PC.
no PC stated at all just PC on of 10,000 made in 36 years.

i tried to turn off video what, add a noun here,please.

well NO PC stated, but remove the AGP card,
then there no GPU CHIPS, THEN...
then add that proliant card, see that it fails
that carD is for server running server BIOS.
mixing server parts , with home products will not work.

that card proliant has BIOS of its own and is only for PROLIANT servers period, best i know..

why not find PC that is 10 years and newer for near nothing,, in the USA PCs are in GLUT status.
and dirt chip,(not new, used)

why not ask on the HP forum business side
and get some laughs... or not?> maybe they will go easy on you? (LOL)


see cheaper here
find dirt used faster windows 7+ PC
for next to nuttn


Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 12, 2017

why run w2000.?
what external drive, made by whom.
USB drive?
what PC? HP what? HP compaq what.
what usb port usb 1, 2, or 3.>?
can you copy files to it using windows explorer, (my computer)
if not the drive is failing
or the power pack on the drive is missing or not rated at 2amps.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 12, 2017

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 10, 2017

C61 what it has a full name never use just the prefix
100,200,300 or 400, yes 4 generations.
what OS< we can not ever guess Op.sys you run ever.
I guess you meant WINDOWS PW????? not BIOS?

hp can help best why ask here we are not HP, at all, just chat bs.
my guess its XP, and is easy to hack.

if you wanted you could google this, ever google.
type," how to reset XP passwords"

bingo, like 1million answers, from 17 long years of hacking that.
we can hack them all up-to w81. not 10.
the model 100 had VISA and w7 offered then, and now.
if hacking is no fun (sure endless virus those places )
ask HP< they might help you. most do.

Not yog, YOKE. The part with all the coiled wired that slips over the end of the crt. The part will be VERY difficult to locate because the CRT's are no longer manufactured, so neither are the parts for the crt such as the yoke. In any event, if you do find one, it is a pain in the ....to replace as you must completely re-align the picture after you change it. Not really a do-it-yourself thing ig you don't understand how that process works. It's usually a 2 or 3 hour job, plus the part, so really with the cost of the new monitors being so low and the incredible picture on the new ones? It's really not worth repair.

Compaq Computers... | Answered on Jul 02, 2017

no PC stated, no MODEL (the service tag on the bottom tells you)
nor any OS stated, operating, system (the boot screen gives that away. windows 98.NT,2000,XP,Vista, W7,w8,w10?????

what does the screen look like, here.
BIOS PW protected.??
or is the Microsoft login screen>?
for the PW , backdoor fix. ask here. real HP is here.

for Microsoft, you will need to show photos of the screen
Windows, version all but W10 have easy hack for password.
Windows 10 , not so... (MS says reload OS to fix that , with F11 key)

for order version, ask at the same site above, for hacks.
