Have acquired a PC that has XP Pro installed, thats all I know. On switch on the PS and CPU fans turn but absolutely nothing else. No beeps so guess no POST, nothing on monitor. Am I right in saying that POST is started in BIOS. Is they any thing I can do to kick this thing into life if BIOS is corrupt
If the onboard car has failed, you might just succeed using a cheap "spare" card plugged in.
It is a bit "catch 22" because you will have to disable the onboard card in the BIOS --- and first get into the BIOS!! ............. That's where the luck will come if it somehow seeks whatever is working!
