I unplugged the plugs from the powersource (p2, p3, p4, and p5) in a compaq presario s5000cl. Can anyone show me a picture or something so that i can plug them back in correctly. When i plug in the computer it makes a siren like noise and the fan on the prossesor cuts on then off two times and makes the siren noise

I think I've had this problem before.... First, What Motherboard do you have?

If you cant tell, then download Everest

After your finished DL/Installing it. Open it up, go to Motherboard/Motherborad then, give the motherborad name. It should be under Motherboard Properties.

Alternatively, you could read the manual, if you have one.

All those plugs will only go in one way and one place - there is a 4 point plug (in a square shape) - that will powr the CPU and there is a plug next to it for that on the mother board.

There is also a 20 or 24 plug power cord (2 rows of 10 or 12) to power you motherboard. There is only one spot for that.

The rest are either molex (4 in line) to power IDE Hard Drives, Optical Drives (CD/DVD) and extra fans. There is also FDD power (a small plug) to power your floppy drive or any internal USB drives.

If you computer is new and uses SATA HDD's, then there will also be SATA power cables (L shaped) to power those.

The other thing to check is make sure that the CPU fan is plugged in correctly. There will be a small plug for that right next to the CPU....

Let us know how you go!

what he said!!

there should be a "terminal" down in the corner farthest from the CPU. u may need a flashlight or something.

they should be labeled p2, p3 (may need magnification.) etc....

So you are saying that you have 4 plugs coming from the power supply, but only two plug holes to put them in? If so, that is normal - make sure they are plugged in (if you require those particular devices) and the 2 remaining power cables can remain disconnected. My last PC had 5 spare molex (4 in line) plugs.

Let me know if that is right...

Okay, well thats not good. We need to identify what the beep code means. For this you need firstly to determine what type of BIOS your PC has.
At the start up screen (after you press the power) does it come up with a logo, or BIOS readout such as mem test, Master and slave drives etc?

Also, can you access your BIOS? (varies between PCs, might be pressing F1, F12, Delete)

Sorry, I'm a bit slow here! You are going to need to step me through what is going on.

I figure that you pulled everything out and then put it all back in, and when you turned it on it beeped and the CPU fan turned off, then on, then off, and then it beeps again.

I also assume that as soon as you plug the power into the back of the PC (with the wall plug turned on) it comes on straight away - but is there any output to the monitor, or does it do nothing but the aforementioned sequence?

Also, why did you disconnect the power? Was it to make a modification/add new hard ware? If so, what did you do/change?

Don't stress either, these things always get sorted out, but we just need to slow down a bit.

Okay cool. It doesnt matter which number goes into which device. I initially thought the same, but it doesn't actually matter. You will find that all after market PSUs aren't numbered - it is usually only brand name PC's that do it (ie. HP, Compaq, Dell etc) because of the production line.

Okay - what type of video card is it, and what is the rating of your PSU? I need to know (for the PSU) the wattage, and the AMPs. There should be a panel on the side of the PSU.....

A possible problem may be that your MoBo and CPU are not getting enough power because of a power hungry Video Card. If you are keen, take out the video card and try booting up again (with all the other components connected) as I am guessing that you used to have on-board video...see if that works... :thumbsup:
