Top 20 Compaq (233803-001) (233803001) KVM Switch - Page 6 Questions & Answers


why would any 8 year old computer be in warranty
love to hear that.

july 2010\ (first ones are 2009) carbon dated by me...
you posted 7 years later on this< why:?
lots of older PC the memories are not made, DDR1.
luck you its 3s.
#1 maker here.
try kingstone dot com
see none there.
leaving only used, and is real hard to find a match.
if you tech cant fix you PC then it cant be fixed can it.
he gave up. I know why, but he did.
he is smart,, is why
the correct path is a new or newer used PC
this is the only path
why, because to fix yours costs more. see.

here is your ram spec
  • Dual channel memory architecture
  • Two DDR3 DIMM (240-pin) sockets
  • Supported DIMM types:
    • PC3-8500 (DDR3-1066)
    • PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333)
  • Non-ECC memory only, unbuffered
  • Supports 2GB DDR2 DIMMs
  • Supports up to 4 GB* on 32 bit PCs

*32-bit operating systems cannot address a full 4.0 GB of memory.

ok, do you run 2 mice?
USB mouse,? or wireless mouse if yes that is the problem ,, is yes say so , we fix that. or remove that.
I cant see you PC so i must beg for facts.
did pc come with Windows, 7?
no PC stated. so..>????

to make the touch pad work, go to hp.com
go to your pc, unstated\
go to the OS , w7 for that PC,
and load the touch pad driver

if HP does no support your PC on W7 then that is a big problem
they can help you can they.?
so then we get more complex, we must find out exactly what touch pad you have ,then go to that maker and get a driver

is PC on the internet now.
yes.
then go to device manager,
click the touchpad listing and remove it or click update this driver.
if lucky W7 finds the driver best and replaces it.
and it now works, this is called Plug and PRAY.

good day!
did you give it 24hrs to finish a charge?
the PC has a charging chip inside.
new battery from whom>?
the line pack is not a charger its line power pack,
it converts 120vac (or 240 outside usa) to 19vdc.(Or your spec)
the 19vdc runs the PC perfectly with no battery installed DOES IT>
that is the first test. the power pack must be the the correct pack
for:
voltage
current (never lower spec)
and watts.
if not the correct power pack it will now work correctly
the watts can be higher no problem,

if it runs ok on line power no battery
then we try the battery. (give it 24hrs for stubborn old batteries)
if the power pack is ok, it will charge, (spec pack as HP tells you)
if the battery is bad it will not.
if the charger chip in the PC is bad (MOBO BAD) then it will not

testing takes, skills and tools, one tool is a voltmeter
lacking that tool, one can only guess.
what not get your PC repaired by a TECH.???????

here is your HP page, its non trivial, no>?
see that they have 5 power packs used
that is BECAUSE they HAVE many power levels of CPU/GPU
faster rated CPU'GPU need more power.

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/hp-compaq-nx7400-notebook-pc/1847094/how-to

you never once said
it runs perfectly on AC power only
not once
nor it does not overheat. nor if the fan works and vents all are free of lent.

CQ50-what? you left off the end number?
dont all COMPAQs do that, this old, sure. all do , those that dont are what we call Miracles of the Deity!
first do this with no battery, take out the huge battery that loves to short and overload all LT.
do so, ok , no cure there... if yes, BINGO>?
what's next.
well it not black screen , is it?, so screen works. Miracle 2.
the NO OS is NO LIE, it told you the truth but means
I cant FIND THE BOOT DRIVE< that is A FACT !
the HDD is dead or windows, dead, no OS STATED BY You. or....


or the coin cell is dead causing the boot device to be WRONG.
no PC this old has good coin cell., replace it.
if the BIOS pages how time and date wrong, COIN BAD.(RTC)
if the BIOS settings keep SCRAMBLING its BAD COIN TIME.
if the beep codes scream bad CMOS memory its COIN TIME.
the coin fails from 5 to 10 years, less if parked in the sun for 3y.

coin 101:

i carbon date this PC at 10 years old 2007 CQ50-100 series
you never posted full model number, so......?????
it has no value used and broken, Id up grade to one 5 years old
sure.

compaq desktop or laptop.....
placement,
is this a replacement question
or how to set it down in front of you question..

Maybe it is too outdated. Microsoft is using IE11 now.

It's not recognizing the TV as a monitor. Find out what resolution the TV runs, then set the PC to those using the other monitor.

Compaq Computers... | 100 views | 0 helpful votes


decide what is faulty and replace it
otherwise a new mother board and cooling fan
new chip/ new power supply if less than 500 watts
new sshd ( sata ) better faster performance with no moving parts to fail
graphic board to suit your requirements
operational cd unit if you can find a good computer repair shop and follow advice you will get a new pc unit that is better than any off the shelf unit for around 1/2 the price with a 12 month warranty on all new units installed
all you need is a good idea of what you want to use the computer for and get the units best suited for the job

with the huge battery removed? why not do that FIRST FIRST?
100% black all the time,, not even text here, ever.
not even using a flash light? pointed at the screen,?
but now all screens are dead.

ive no idea at all what is plugged in here, its all over the map.
Laptop screen
VGA screen (has hot key , if not used the port is dead, RTM?)
projector.? huh? (yes, ive used them for years)

did you read the users guide yet, if not why?
you posted anon, 2 times. now? why?

so the PC is bad. (check)
so you are asking how to diagnose a PC with no tools ?
well if you make a BOOT CD, for 10cents and boot to linux live CD
if the screen is dead the the PC is dead. end story
  1. remove main Battery, bingo.
  2. replace power pack, it costs $15, we use a voltmeter you dont have.
  3. The PC is overheated fans dead or packed in lint, as all are this old, ALL ARE. or the heat sink is failing, only a tech can fix this.
  4. Its old, it will fail as all old PC's do, BAD memory, try 1 stick at a time.? finding new sticks are ******* old PC , super hard.
  5. BAD CMOS coin cell causing RTC to go nuts BIOS settings same. replace the coin now. but usually it never kills the screen, but never seen a good coin this old so.... there you go...
  6. BAD mobo. The MOBO has lots of chips, cpu, GPU, Glue logic and regulators.
For sure the GPU chip is upset, why we dont know. takes lost of testing and lacking spare parts is many times impossible to cure.

leave the main huge battery out, until the PC runs perfect,
batteries this old are NO GOOD ! EVER! leave it OUT.

all things made by man fail out of the blue, all do, and x100 that on old things. it's called Entropy in Physics class.

Cq57 with the ending number missing why post this.
no OS stated, why ask , we can not guess full p/n nor OS. at all.
why not get tech to fix it?? like your car, it breaks, do you fix that.same thing here, PCs are complex.

but here is a list .
1: screen not dead. if yes, say screen is black totally .
2: you power on and go to BIOS,, and the keys work there Y/N.
No; the keyboard is no good, replace it. or the ribbon cable to it fell off.(deep inside , and tricky)
yes, see the keyboard does work in BIOS.
your BIOS keys are in your operators guide and service manuals
lost those, seem so, and so you must beg for long gone books>?

carbon date 2011, not that old.

the magic key is"ESC" press it like a wood-peckker bird at power button on, and quickly hit ESC, this is BIOS SETUP
HP calls it ONLY SETUP. but is BIOS setup on all PC made.
as see in your lost manual.

page 82 tells the secret key and now to do it)
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c02786367.pdf


this is first, if BIOS screens work the major parts of the PC are ok
but not HDD or windows, unstated windows. xp or windows 7
xp is a virus magnet do not use it. online.

never put email here ,ever, or get SPAM endless for 100 years. wow.
this is an English forum.,

here I used google translate for you
quoted and commented:
"I have one problem.
Namely, I need to perform an experiment with temperature measurement using thermopar. ?????????

I plugged the heaters into the HP 3497 acquisition cortex.
I connect this HP via IEEE488 connections to PC via ISA card (iee 488 card).
WE DONT USE ISA card today, in USA> and software for this is hard to find in year 2017,

The problem is that I can not intimidate that card to work under XP.
WE DONT USE XP today in USA it's a VIRUS MAGNET>!

Do you have any solution?
And do you know a program by which I can read these measurements? I wrote some programs in qbasic.
I installed Labview, but it seems to me that it's quite complex.
I need some simple program, possibly with visualization.

ITS NOT SIMPLE at all to make 488 work.
Thanks in advance

My guess, is you are trying to use HP-IB (IEEE488) communications, cables ( a parallel 2 way comms)
to some ?instruments.? (ask the instrument maker yet)
My guess they are long ago no longer in business or the products are long long gone now.

why not tell the full information on this instrument./?????
makers name, and model #
that takes working software on the PC side.
(drivers for the ISA, and APPS to run it)

the Maker of the instrument would have APP software to run that.
ask them?
if not, you get to write your own software,
and would need the IEEE488 comms library to do that ,and buy it.

you';d also need the book in the instrument in order to learn
the IEEE488, command sets , and address and data forumats.
or its impossible.

You may have a bad backlight screen power supply board and that is usually mounted in the bottom part of the screen right behind the front bezel. This supply's high voltage to the backlight tube that lights the screen. This is kind of like a small florescent tube that uses high voltage to fire the backlight and is a common failure point in laptop screens. Easy to fix, just pop the front bezel off and the module will be in the center bottom section of the screen. Do a YouTube search on how to disassemble your model's screen and the parts can be found on Ebay. Good luck.

desperate , why that? are you in uSA>???? locations matter.!!!
its an old monitor , buy a new one, and end this love of old Compaq's
yous posted with on only the word ribbon, why?
the cable on the outside, is a round heavy VGA cable.
so is not a ribbon
so that tells me you took this old monitor apart, right?
and broke or lost a ribbon?
the only parts for this is used off EBAY.

i looked for you, and see none, its old and now rare. 2001 made.
16 long long years ago, and now forgotten by all..
buy a new monitor, its not work spending case on old things.
see $60 monitors? here in USA>

http://pcdied.com/cheaper.html


tell me how can you fix something and beat that price.
lacking parts, is impossible.

NO PC STATED
xp is a virus magnet , why run XP?
The hinge is a switch, ? and failed with hinge,
why not use XP power sittings, advanced, in control panel
why not just use the power button and shut it off.
the overheating is failure #3, and is packed inside full of lent. bad that.
in control panel make sure the power button is set to turn off
if you program the powe buttion to hibernate then you must use
XP start , shutdown feature to turn it off.

ever seen control panel. and power settings and advanced?
set the lid to do nothing, its broken so.....
then set the power button as you wish.
btw most XP are infected with virus or worse.
and hibenate will not work, getting hibernate to work in XP or any old XP is like a DREAM. all things must be perfect for hiberate work correctly , and all HP drivers installed, matching your exact PC.
or it fails. I never use hibernate. its a pain most times.
and can also fail to come out of hibernate.
use sleep mode its more Robust.
your PC is broken why not get it fixed?

Do know this some PC , there are no spare parts now. if too old
