|Well I got the battery today but I am still getting these errors:|
167-rtc lost power - replace battery and run setup
if I press F1 then I get:
operating system not found
I have checked the bios and the date/time wasn't correct so I changed it but i am still experiencing that error.
I am not 100% sure I placed the battery right. It seems to be placed right but when i tried to put it in the first time it didn't have something to hold it in place so I squeezed it in between some kind of prong thing. Can't think of the right word. The parts are so small it is hard to know how I got it out and how it was held in place before.
I know there was an extra error before so maybe I am advancing non the less.
Anyway had a look around here on computing.net and found this http://www.computing.net/answers/wi... I got the 'computer set up and diagnostics for portables' from here http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsuppor...
and tried to run it on the notebook but it is not responding to it. I did change the bios to boot from the floppy but nothing is happening. Any ideas?
Oh yes the other error is :
102-system board failure.
That has just been added to the above error.
Oh bugger now I found several posts saying that the motherboard could be dead. I even found a page of the compaq errors and it said to replace the system board. Ah well I will sell it on ebay for parts unless someone comes up with some other solution.
