Having problems with your Compaq Presario SR1703WM PC Desktop ?

Video controller problem? pc wont come on

\015 Hi sorry this is long, but I figured the more info, the easier to figure out the 'fix'!\015\012\015\012 I have a compaq sr1703wm. Winxp sp2. I stupidly ended a bunch of\015\012processes in task manager (someone said to do this for faster dl).\015\012Anyway, when I ended one that was a 'network process', a box popped up\015\012that said something like 'network ending in 60 sec. & pc will be\015\012restarted'. I couldnt hit cancel or anything, so it shutdown, but\015\012wouldn't restart! There was a long beep, not really a pause in the\015\012beep. My moniter stayed black, but the power button on the moniter kept\015\012blinking. \015\012 Its not the moniter because when I unplug the monitor from the\015\012pc it stays lit & the monitor logo comes on until I plug it back\015\012into the pc (even though the pc is off, moniter does the samething -\015\012goes black & power button blinks!)\015\012 I tried everthing, but it wouldn't boot. After a few hrs. of\015\012turning it off & on, it started up. It said 'new hardware found'\015\012(which I have no new hardware). Device manager had yellow mark near\015\012Other Devices: Video Controller & also something was wrong w/ my\015\012network card or adapter (no doubt from me playing w/ task manager!). I\015\012tried to update driver, none could be found. I couldnt find much help on the web.\015\012 I then tried to do a repair w/ win cd, but when I shut it down\015\012so I could do it - my pc did the same beep & wouldnt come on. After\015\0122 more hrs. of turning it on & off, it came on, only this time\015\012there was no internet connection! So I tried system restore, when it\015\012shut down to do that - it didnt come back on for 2 days! \015\012 I just now got it back on & this time I have internet. It\015\012still has the video controller sign (& says its new hardware) but\015\012there doesnt seem to have the network card problem anymore.But now a\015\012Microsoft box says 'because I have so much hardware it doesnt\015\012recognize I need to 'activate' my windows again'!\015\012 I do have sound & I had NO problems until I stupidly ended\015\012the processes. I cant really afford $200 to bring it to a shop, so any\015\012advice will be greatly appreciated. Hopefully, it doesnt shut down or\015\012need to be restarted for anything before I get the right answer! :) \015\012Thank you so much in advance!\015

You have a few things going on.

1.) missing drivers
Please visit support.intel.com and do the automatic device finder on there site. It will give you all intel related drivers for your system.

2.)Need to get your video card drivers fixed to but you did not mention who manufactured the video cards. If its nividia you can goto http://www.codebluehelp.co.cc and hit up the downloads section to have the nividia app auto scan for nividia products.

3.)sounds also like you may have some infections on your system a virus scanner would not help you with. Please be sure to goto http://www.codebluehelp.co.cc/downloads.html and get cleaner, advanced system care, and spybot search and destroy. This should be a big help.
