I upgraded my computer and removed the TX pro board and the Intel 200MMX. My friend wanted them and so we went ahead and installed it. We could _not_ get it to work. I put the processor back in my machine and it was fine.
So. he went out and bought another board (assuming that my old one had got damaged taking it/putting it in). Exactly the same problem.
We've stripped out everything bar the 2 SIMMS, the Processor and the video card. The machine beeps and does nothing.
We've re-jumpered it and tried my new AMD K6 - nothing
checked all the insulation - nothing
Tried a couple of sets of RAM - nothing.
The power supply from my machine -nothing.
We KNOW that the processors are okay and assume the RAM is because it worked when it left the last machine.
I cannot believe that we have two bad motherboards !!!!
My friend is suicidal and threatening to throw the whole thing into the garden to rot.....please help !!!
We've tried by AMD K6 in there and it won't work.
