|Compaq Presario 6000 PC doesn't POST after bios update downloaded off Hp's site - 2003-12-17 , Version: 3.17, 1011.3k update for P4G533-LA motherboard. Not sure what I can do to fix this? |
Unit is 5-6 yrs old, reloaded XP on it (was waaaay overdue), was updating drivers just fine, PC was running great. Then I ran the BIOS update (update In Windows type), now PC doesn't post. It goes through Master/Slave device detection list, then the cursor moves over to the left of the screen and stops, but stays blinking...but goes no further. Items plugged into PRI IDE are not recognized at boot, but when I plug them into SEC IDE, they are seen with boot and BIOS.
Mobo looks ok (no bad caps as they say), hdd was tested with Seagate disk tool ok. Pulled all ide devices off, and still doesn't post.
