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


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....)

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

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.

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.

Compaq Computers... | 102 views | 0 helpful votes


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,.

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?

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

https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/compaq-evo-workstation-w8000/322279


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.

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?

This machine ran Windows 95 making it an older Compaq. The following link describes how on older Compaqs bios was entered. On some machines, there was no hot key for entrance and another method was used. But try the F10, i. e. function key F10 at boot.

NO PC stated, just Compaq.
NO OS stated. xp to w7, you did not say from ?what.
this error happens if MS thinks XP is pirated.
The w7 disk words on top tell the real story,
upgrade, but is it a real MS, retail disk.
all the words on the disk tell me what it really is. post a photo?
if the PC is still original. (say HP XP unchanged)
the OS you run is from HP not MS.
that is why MS told you to call HP.
The HP software disk are custom to your PC.
unique. (windows, drivers and key HP apps)

The COA sticker on the bottom (license to use HP windows)
is a HP only license , called OEM.
that is why MS told you to ask HP.

best is to reload the OS.

if the PC was not slammed by others.
means someone put wrong OS on it. or pirated.
or new HDD swapped, or erased hdd.
then the F11 key works.
Restore F11, XP and then upgrade to W7.
Upgrages btw love to fail, its in the CARDS.
vast reasons for it, #1 is XP infections
XP has over 700 exploits, and love to fail
and upgrades as SIDE show fail.

boot the PC by power on and instantly hammer the F11 key the runs the HP Recovery off the original
HP Hard disk partition of same name.

if that is missing F11 feature.
then you have 2 choices
1: get the HP install media from HP. call them.
2; or buy a retail MS windows 7 disk. $120


see below for #2 above
its best to keep restore media on any owned

PC so when the hard drive fails, you are ready.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143


here is the other way, from MS

most stores sell w7-32bit home.

here is one
https://www.walmart.com/ip/Microsoft-Windows-7-Home-Premium-with-SP1-32-bit-Operating-System-PC/36009633


also at newegg
and at amazon.
this is retail disk and runs on most PC made.
after using retail disk

better is to buy a used PC with w7 on it
so you get HP support and MS support.

all that to say the built in keyboard is dead.?

please tell what it does and does, not do...
lets stick to simple first. notepad wins SIMPLE hands down.!
try usb standard keyboard yet?
it must work .
this helps prove what's failing,
i take it a mouse works USB and then built in pad right?
if not the OS is corrupted.

or the run box.
you click start button, and then click run or search
and the keyboard is dead.
i think there is switch for turning on the screen keyboard (virtual )
that may be turned on, but you'd see that clear as day on the screen.
so in effect there are 3 keyboad.
the screen keyboard.
the main kbd
and a desktop usb keyboard.
which work and not, tell the reason, why.

if all were dead,then the OS is corrupted.

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)

old compaq. LAPTOP,, 14 years old now, Im amazed it even glows at all with CCFL lamps not dead, wow.. its like a musiem piece.
(sorry , grin) (back ground lamps CCFL)
NO OS stated by you , XP, ????? why must helpers beg?

and wifi , (difficult that)
it's not wifi, its just that you use wifi most the time ,SEE? right?
in fact we could remove the wifi module. and prove that.
disabling wifi is airplane mode, (todays jargon) but means the wifi transmitter is now OFF (airplane safe is THAT)

the blue screens tell a lot, and no posted photo of one by you.
sad,
BSODs we call those blue screens of *****
XP love to do that. (even with Bill Gates on stage) LOL
BSOD are hard. Im sure it says 2 words, HALT and DUMP !
here is a list of causes.... for sure 14year old relics (legacy junk)

  1. the main battery inside is bad or shorted, remove it run AC , does it, wow, it does, problem solved in minutes flat.
  2. the Inverter is shorted (CCFL card) and bom, BSOD
  3. bad RAM, BSOD XP fast , try 1 stick at a time.
  4. Bad HDD< can corrupte files and XP BSODS in a blink !
  5. any thing shorted, remove all usb devices yet?
  6. remove extra ram. , unplug CD drive?

all techs know rule 1,
is it hardware or software, (this is alway first after #1 above done)
to do that we open the CD tray, insert our free LIVE LINUX CD
and boot to linux
wow it runs for hours ok, proving what, HARDWARE IS BAD
if Linux fails its bad hardware (running period correct disk)
if linux runs i next do a full HDD test, using the great linux program there to do that.

or take that handy dandy, Compac (now HP) 3 disk install disks
set and load disk one, does that run? ok
even full restore. or does it show HDD errors.? oops HDD is bad.

the BSODs are really what.
it means the PC attempted to run and ******* instruction.
in simple terms, it means a program is corrupted.
or tried to do ******* things with memory.
that is why test test the PC with a boot CD to see if the PC is ok.
see?

mr wifi real.
sure this can short, but if it is removed and it still BSODs
its not this card, its other cards, shorted. or not at all. cards.
we call this mini-PCI slot card.

Try rebooting to see if that clears up the issue. Should. Does not mean it will not happen again if you repeat the operation that caused the BSOD. There is an issue with your OS and you might want to attempt a repair operation if possible

You need to change the user name and password from your grandson to new ones for you.

Compaq Computers... | 36 views | 0 helpful votes


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.
