Hi all, my wife's Compaq presario 2100 has suddenly died all that happens is you get the Compaq splash screen and all goes blank I am unable to get into the bios nor will it boot from floppy or CD, the best I can get is entering setup and then it just hangs. I have tried to boot using a different keyboard and mouse , even removing the hard drive, I suspect a motherboard problem. What do you think is it worth repairing and if so what next?
I have tried that alsothanks. I will have another look for the battery although I am not to sure if that is the prob whenever I have had a battery fail on me I have always been able to get into the bios and also boot from a floppy, I fear the worst.
