Unhappy Compaq Presario SR2050NX won't boot up
As soon as I start up the computer, the bios page appears with the options (Settings) (Boot Menu) and Recovery. I have tried entering all 3 of these operations and there is no response. The computer will just sit at te bios page for hours if left untouched. This is a 2005 computer. Did it just die or is there another cause to this problem?

To pinpoint the problem you need to do some troubleshooting procedures.

Go here;

http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/5...em-builds.html

and follow the instructions under the section "You assembled the system, and it will not post"

Whether the machine is old or new the troubleshooting is the same. On an older machine the problem is likely the motherboard, however you need to prove the board defective before you replace it.
