My compaq presario S3500CL desktop won't start. When press the power button, It just attempt to start then nothing happened. Its not even booting or try to start up. Is there anybody who has an idea how to solve this problem?
Sometimes, crystal, if you don't have technical expertise then a repair shop or friend who does is the best bet. It could be any number of things pinning your system.... the power supply, mb, card on the mb, RAM, BIOS corruption.... Gee.
Start with RAM. Power off, pull the plug, open the case, ground your hands to the case [grab hold of the chassis], then identify your RAM sticks. If you have multiple, remove one.. try to restart. No go? Swap sticks. Goes? Bingo.
Power supply.... well, BIOS won't be telling you voltages if BIOS is not running. Either swap out the ps, or get it tested.
It's a start... :)
