Yep its a combination of at least 3 pins tapped quickly that make the beast come alive, there is voltage at the power on pins but god help me if I can fire it on with the power button or a screwdriver. At first I didn't recognize the problem because I figured the silkscreening was wrong and apparent...

Sorry about the long delay, I did email back that the bios works OK despite a troublesome mobo. The only issue is cosmetic, set everything to auto and don't try to detect stuff if the bios beforehand and everything works fine. Inside the bios the drive capacity is always zero but the parameters are ...

Kachi, I had a similar problem but with "power leakage" near the keyboard control section of a proprietary computer photography system. (aka QLT Futura 100) The system was inop and I had spares and could see no way of repairing the board save removing that entire section and reconstructing. What I d...

Chaintech 5ttl won't detect 80gb HD

Blast, after a couple of years of not buiding systems all day and I forget Award Bios's hang when the drive is too large. I downloaded the last 1998 bios from archive.org and my K6-2 2.0v 475mhz chip runs fine albeit at an unadjustable 2.2volt. A problem for another day I guess. I will post the bios...

Already sent an email, HP can't seem to remember ever making it, in fact they say that model is invalid. It wasn't a "consumer" product at the time (circa 1992-1995) and was marketed to the high end so they conviently forgot it. :(

We're giving up on this one. Since he didn't back up the original bios on the card (no option was given) I can't warrant more time on it. He decided to update the video card to a Geforce2 GTS problem solved :?
