I have been having troubles with this computer for a few days now, i have tried just about everything. Swapping out the CMOS battery, taking out RAM (no beep codes). I have done a lot of troubleshooting on many sites, but this is the first post im making.
I was playing a game last night and it froze, i just restarted, it booted fine, then about 5mins later, it froze again and has been dead ever since. I go to hit the power button, the little yellow light with the cylinder picture next to it flashes yellow for a second then goes off, but nothing else happens. Hard drive, CD-Drive, Fans, all turn on and sound like they are running. but nothing boots. Id have to unplug the power cord and put it back in and hit the power button to be able to attempt a restart.
I am using a Compaq Presario SR5333WM
Athlon 64 X2 (W) 4200+ 2.2 GHz (65W)
2000 MT/s (mega transfers/second)
GeForce 6150SE nForce 430
[I am using a GeForce 8800 GS GFX card instead]
Motherboard Name: MCP61PM-HM
HP/Compaq motherboard name: Iris8-GL6
if someone can help me with this, id probably marry them...
