Computer won't boot
Posted on 2005-03-17
I started having problems with my desktop computer yesterday. I notice that the machine was rebooting itself when I got home last night. After using it for about 10 minutes when it came back up last night I was on the internet and all of a sudden it shut off. I am no longer able to turn it on. I've tried removing everything from the motherboard except a memory stick and the video card and try to boot to bios but the monitor doesn't come up and I don't hear the bios running. Is there any way to confirm other than this that it is in fact the motherboard that crashed.
Let me say again. When I turn the machine on, I get no response from the display and I don't hear they typical bios beeps. Could this be as simple as a dead battery on the mainboard?
Any help is appreciated before I go hunting for a new motherboard.
The mainboard is a Tekram P6Pro-A+
I believe the processor is a PIII-450
