I've got an old compaq presario c300 that was playing up. In an earlier post on the subject, I said I was going to fit a new motherboard. Well, I've done that, and now I want to install the os. So, I power up, and all the lights come on properly,which they didn't do before, and a plain blue screen - no POST screen - nothing. So, has anybody got any ideas, or are all the parts going on E-bay? thanks
I don't know if the mobo came with bios installed - maybe not! How do I tell which chip is the bios chip? I don't know who the manufacturer is -I could try taking it all apart again and looking at the board, or I'll look at the old board.
