I am wanting to help a friend with a problem of a Compaq computer. Basically, at startup, the Compaq Logo Appears, but never disappears for the pc to go on into the desktop. Upon casual observation, I noticed the fan within the power supply is not rotating which probably explains some if not all of this problem. Incidentally, I noticed the power supply is mounted to a sliding bay which pulls out with the power supply and held and place by screws. If it needs an entire new power supply, it may be hard to find one which will mount to this bay. Is it possible to only replace the "fan" and retain the power supply?
In any case, the power supply problem may not be the entire reason for the pc locking up at the Compaq logo. Since I am not sure exactly, I desire to entertain this pc concern to everyone.
Any ideas, thoughts, and suggestions will be appreciated and welcomed.
