Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario SR1720NX (EL435AA) PC Desktop ?

4 components in failure, now what?

\015 My computer has 4 major components in failure, and i dunno how long it will last with it messed up like it is. The processors being funky, the fans being super quiet, even when my space heaters on, the motherboard is slightly cracked, and the BIOS is saying that the hard drive's about to fail.\015\012\015\012Long-formatting is out of the question: took 5 hours to get to 99%, i ended up having to quick-format it, but I know that the thing wont last and its NOT worth replacing this part or that part, already looked into a new computer, but the question I have is, will this one hang on long enough for me to have the other one, which is expected to be in early May.\015\012\015\012An idea of a timeline with these problems would be helpful.\015

Answers :

Well as for the hard drive,, the laptop im currently on, also warns me of an impending hard drive failure and to back up all data when i start the laptop and ive been using it for several months this way, although i DO NOT keep anything important on here as it can completely fail at any time. As for the motherboard,, im surprized its still workign at all if its cracked so im guessing that wont last too much longer. And as for the fans,, its possible that either your processor is acting funny because its overheating due to the fans not spinning as fast as they should be,,, or your processor could just be shot.

My Dell M991 TCO-99 monitor has lost the red colour i.e. there is NO red at all, an of course all the other colours are affected - shifted towards blue - is it the end of the CRT or can it be fixed by adjusting or replacing some component ?


I'm assuming the red is gone completely; that is, it's not present at all and not just missing in video from the computer. If that's the case, you probably have a bent pin in the VGA connector, a bad signal cable, or possible video card failure. ... Dell M991 19" CRT Monitor
