Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

Compaq presario SR1817CL beeping when we turn it on. I has never done it before, but we just moved it and now it is beeping. Single long beeps every 2 seconds. Took the side panel off and looked around, everything looks like it is in place and tightened. I just don't know what it could be.


Answers :

Seems to me that the memory module(s) is/are not tightly seated in its/their slots. This could happen as a result of moving the system.
I would suggest that you remove the memory modules from their slots & re-install them back.

Here's is a link to a very useful document about troubleshooting HP & Compaq products using the BIOS beep codes:

My Samsung SyncMaster 2463UW no longer auto detects the video input. I normally use it with my MacBook Pro - I turn it on, it detects the digital output and Bob's your uncle. Today, I turned it on and it continues to cycle through analog, digital and HDMI input sources. However, I can actually see the correct output when it switches to ''digital'' mode - it just won't stay there.
