Symptom: Will not POST/Boot
When the machine is turned on the fan starts, the battery led is green
and the other indicator LED's light for 2 seconds after which the 'hard
disk in use' and 'power on' indicators remain on and the fan goes to
'idle' and that's it - nothing else, no sound of hard drive activity and
nothing on the screen.
I have tried with various components removed e.g.. CDROM drive, HDD,
extra memory, modem card etc.. to try to narrow down the problem but no
luck. I have also replaced the CMOS battery and used the reset button.
The main battery is good, no passwords are set and no keys are stuck
down (as far as I can see).
There are NO beep codes.
It looks like a mainboard/CPU failure to me.
Anyone got any ideas??
