|I bought a Compaq Presario SR1650NX from a guy at a fleamarket (lol, yeah, I know). It was in excellent shape. He told me it worked fine and everything was great. It has an AMD 64 Athlon 2.8 GHz proc. 2GB RAM, 250 GB Western Digital HD. ASUS A8AE-LE MOBO. Came with a nVIDIA Quadro FX dual DVI monitor card which I removed first thing because I dont have a DVI-VGA adapter for my LCD yet. Well, I hooked it all up and it goes to the first COMPAQ screen that says ESC=Boot Menu, F1=Setup, F10=System Recovery. Thing is, my PS2 keyboard wont work. Even tried a USB keyboard that doesnt work either (yes I'm sure the keyboards are good, use them on my other comps)|
Ive taken the CMOS battery out, still nothing. booted with the hard drive disconnected, same thing happens. It just sits at the COMPAQ screen and does nothing. Is my MOBO bad? BIOS chiop bad? any help will be greatly appreciated.
