I ran across a older comp..it is Intel Desktop mobo..D815EEA2...It has been sitting up for 5/6 months...so that means the battery is dead??....and if the battery is dead then the Cmos has been lost???..I replaced the battery and it did not respond....The only thing that i can see in activity is the CDrom blinking on start...the light comes on the front(activity light??) The light is a solid color not blinking and after a few minutes it will go off.
If the Cmos is dead ..can i bring it back??

Could be any number of things:

  • Dead motherboard.
  • Dead CPU.
  • No heatsink/fan on CPU or no thermal connectivity.
Unless you have a compelling reason for getting this machine to go then don't waste your time with it. It sounds like it's going to give you a lot of grief for very little return.
