On my testing computer I have windows 7 dual booted with windows8.1.
Pentium 4 2.93 Prescot
It has always booted fine ,until today.
Now when I power up it gives one peep, and up comes a black screen saying
“Press tab to see post, press del to enter setup”, then it freezes, no matter how long I leave it, it does not boot up.
I have tried disconnecting each drive in turn, and both drives atonce,
on examining my computer motherboard,i found that the four pin socket that feeds the processor was hardly connected.on pressing this home the computer booted normaly.
when I changed every thing, fom the original case to a better case,i must have not pressed this socket home, and it subsequently worked loose
