Greetings all, I have a compaq 5151 (s/n 1x89bx35r26w) Try to start up and is dead. nothing at all? put in a known good p.s. and still no power to computer at all. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated on troubleshooting. Thanks! George.
Found something interesting today from the owner of this machine. He says it has been switching itself from 16 bit colors to 256. The video card is in the mobo, is it possible for this to be the culprit?, I have a new video card on hand, but not sure how to bypass the integrated one? Thanks, George
I broke it back, with no luck. even put a new cpu in and still no power. Only things not really checked is the mobo itself and that video that is integrated into the mobo. I can't find anywhere that it can be bypassed? anyone got an idea, before i look for a new mobo. Thanks again. George
