New to group and you seem to be a helpful group of people so I'll post here as a last effort before the go to the scrap box.
I have an hp pavillion 8660C (got it cheap)
heres the problem; When booting i goto the black screen and get the following.
PhoenixBIOS 4.0 Release 6.0.F
Copyright 1985-1998 Phoenix Technologies LTD.
All Rights Reserved
Intel Pentium Processor 533 MHz
640K System RAM Passed
126m Extended Ram Passed
128K Cache SRAM Passed
System BIOS shadowed
Video BIOS shadowed
UMB upper limit segment address: E8B3
Press <F1> to enter SETUP
I press <F1> and it will then say Entering SETUP but it never does anything else.
Here is what I have done;
Tried just starting it- Nothing
Removed all add-in cards- same
Tried a known good processor get the same
Tired the unknown processor in a known good motherboard get no video on that board - something to figure out another time.
removed memory - got no memory beep code
tested removed memory in good system- No problems
used known good memory in system- same result
I have also reset the BIOS by taking the battery out and waiting overnight. and putting it back in. same result
tested power supply - tested ok
All fans work
Anyone got any other ideas? Motherboard and Processor just junk?
Any and all help with this is greatly appreciated.
