Optiplex won't P.O.S.T.
Posted on 2008-06-24
Started a couple of weeks ago. MOBO battery going dead. Having to press F1 to continue startup. Yesterday my trusty old SX280 started spontaneously restarting every few minutes. I got a new battery and dropped it in, closed up the case and now. It wont even get to the first part step of posting. No video, no fans spinning up no hard drives spinning up. But the lights come on at least the orange light not the green light comes on. I have not found any info on resetting jumpers and what that might be. Also all components are standard unmodified from the factory one hard drive one video 1.5mg ram.
