CMOS reset and computer will not start (no power)
Posted on 2006-05-02
I have an older IBM 700MH model 6579. I was getting a system security error similar to the question "IBM netvista model 6578,6579: POV problem" that was posted on experts exchange on March 16, 2006. A bios upgrade didn't help so I went to reset the CMOS. I opened up the case, removed the CMOS jumper, and replaced it 20 seconds later. Now my computer will not start and I mean it acts as if there is no power going to it. Push the on button and nothing happens. Is it possible the CMOS reset could have caused this?
