Alright guys I could use some pointer as to what is wrong here is the problem
Compaq Presario 2100 with amd 2800+
no os yet...
Computer will not post.
CPU is seated correctly
Here are a few thing I have tried:
Boot from AC:
cpu does NOT get warm
lghts quickly blink once
nothing on screen etc.
no fans etc.
Boot From Battery:
Boot from AC+battery in:
fans turn on and cpu gets very hot
they shut off after 1 second (but longer than when on only ac)
Any ideas waht I could try? Thanks
