SR1603WM won't boot?

Discussion in 'Compaq' started by ***** charles, Feb 8, 2007.

  1. Hi all,

    I just got a hold of a Presario SR1603WM computer.
    It as a Sempron 3200 in it with one stick of 512M ram.
    When I first got it I determined that the power supply
    was bad so I got a new one. After I hooked it up, the
    computer does the same thing, after I push the power
    button, the keyboard lights flash, the monitor light goes
    from amber to green, the hd light flickers and that's it,
    nothing on the screen, no boot routine. Does this
    mean the motherboard is fried? Any other insights?

    thanks,
    charles.....
