Hi, my compaq presario sr2032x wont boot. Power light is ON, PSU light is green. CPU fan runs at full speed. I can hear HD sound too. No display. Keyboard light would blink once and then nothing. It was working until last night. Nothing changed physically for this computer.

Is it time to get replacement?

Thanks in advance.

Have you opened the side of the computer and looked at the capacitors on the motherboard? they should look nice, clean and cylindrical, with a flat top, there should be nothing leaking and nothing bulging anywhere on the capacitor. That would be my first place to look. Also, is the computer making any beeping noises on startup?

If you have a bootable CD, put it in the CD/DVD drive and reboot. If it boots from the disk, then your problem is narrowed down to either the operating system, or the hdd.

Another note. You may need to enter the BIOS to make the DC/DVD drive the first device in the boot order so that the CD boots instead of the operating system.
