|My computer is about 6 years old and i think it's starting to show its age. I plan on getting another but would like to salvage this one if possible. For about a month, when i booted it up it told me that the system voltage was low, so I needed to replace the cmos battery. I never got around to it and one day while my wife was using the computer it went to a blue screen. she tried to reboot and it is completely locked up. It only shows the Dell.com logo in large letters in the middle of the screen and the pentium 4 logo in the bottom right. That's all it does now, that and it sounds like the disk drive is about to take off! |
I've tried taking out all the components but the vital ones (HD, video card,ram,etc ) and that didnt work. tried to reset the cmos pins, no dice. I'm at a lose, any ideas if resetting the bios might help, or is my MOBO shot?
