20 Most Recent Compaq Presario SR1103WM-B (PC183B#ABA) PC Desktop Questions & Answers

This will only work in windows. Most computers have another video out port other than vga. Check your computer and use that. You may need to buy an adapter.

The Manuals are here... http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=424182&
However, if this machine is running XP, or earlier, beware. It is no longer supported, and hackers will be looking for these machines to infect. I recommend you get a newer machine, or don't try to get on the Internet with this one.
Good luck

Replace the CMOS battery. Power down, unplug the power cord. Open the side of your computer, on the motherboard look for a small, silver battery about the size of a quarter. It will be installed in a holder sitting flat. Get the type number off of it (something like CM3203, etc) and pick one up at Radio Shack, Walgreens, almost any dept. store. Be sure to get the polarity correct when installing the new one or you will get weird results trying to start up your computer.

You may have muted the sound. Go into Control Panel and click on Sound. You can see if the sound is muted, and can increase the volume, if needed. You will also need to decide it you want the sound sent to speakers or headset there, and which sound system you are using.

go to http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/faq/general/is-it-ccleaner,-cccleaner-or-c-cleaner

Download crapcleaner, and run it, go to "Tools" which will list all your installed program and click on the program you want to uninstall. That should do it.
It's a brilliant product for cleaning up your machine and will also make it go faster.
Read the blurb that comes with it if you are unsure of anything.

This should work (if you have the original Intel video card that is)

If you like my answer please give me a 4-thumbs up rating.

The easiest way to make this computer wireless is with a USB wireless adapter. You have many choices. The easiest is to order online? or go toyour nearest office supply store.

Brand does not matter, just get what is readily available. Should cost no more than $89 dollars.

This will work if you have a wireless network that you will be able to connect to at your location?

If you are handy at opening the computer and installing devices? then an internal Wireless PCI adapter can be installed.

I hope this gives you the answers you are looking for.

You can try reinstalling the driver as it may be currupt.
Look in device manager and make sure it is listed and enabled.
I hope this helped.
Good luck and have a great day.

It could be "sort of" either. If the power supply fan is labouring or stopped, it will overheat very quickly and force a shutdown or blow a fuse. Because of the latter usually this will only happen a few times, and then perminently. If the cpu fan bushings are clogged with jam, and it is labouring, the cpu temps will shoot up and trigger a bios level shutdown. So you need to do some checking, and perhaps some cleaning. Usually if there are motherboard problems, you will get beeping indications of device checks. If there is no picture, then the vga card could be loose...but again, beeping for sure. loose power cord connect or worn - problems, not always a beep here. Check a cables and connections but the first checks are likely the root.

Try this- plug the monitor to the laptop, press simultaneously Fn+F5 or Fn+F6, that activates the external video exit port.

You need to do a system restore back to before the update. You can either access it during your bootup or, you should have the option through "all programs".

Compaq Presario... | Answered on May 12, 2011

Telephone HP, and order a set of the "System Restore" CD-ROM disks.
Probably about $20, plus $20 for overnight-courier delivery.

It must be up to 8 years old ish as it has XP installed.

17-inch flat screen CRT monitor NEW* Intel Celeron D Processor 3252.53 GHz, 533 MHz FSB, 256 KB L2 cache 256 MB DDR SDRAM CD-RW (48x32x48) 40 GB hard drive 9-in-1 memory card reader 10/100Base-T networking interfaceIntegrated graphics with 64 MB shared video memory *The new Celeron D processors are more efficient than the old Celeron processors. The New 325 D benchmarks faster than the old Celeron 2.7 GHz processor.

Almost any IDE hard drive will work, up to 540Gb and any reasonable power supply should be OK. Check ebay and also google for a power supply.
Hope that helps.

You can press F10 and you will get the option to take the computer to system console and then follow the steps and if you have the CD with you then follow the steps below

1 Shut down your computer and restart it. Watch for the Compaq logo, then press the "F1" key to enter setup.
2 Press the right arrow within setup to go to the Boot menu. Press the down arrow to access the "Boot Device Priority" option. Change the first boot device to CD-ROM by pressing the down arrow until "CD-ROM" is displayed.
3 Eject the CD tray and place the recovery CD that came with your computer into the tray. If you do not have a recovery CD, you can order one directly from Hewlett Packard.
4 Shut down and restart the computer. The Presario will automatically boot from the CD and begin the recovery process.
5 Select the operating system your computer shipped with. Many Compaq recovery CDs support multiple operating systems, so be sure to choose the operating system your computer shipped with.
6 Insert the operating system CD when prompted. Enter the license key for the operating system when prompted. The license key is typically found on a small tag located on the top or side of the computer.
