Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
Ok I got this IBM machine when I try to turn on, it turns on for half a sec and then it turns off. It will just keep on trying to do the same thing if I leave it without unpluggin the power. First I thought the PSU was bad, so I changed that but that wasn't the problem. I tried to change RAM as well... could this be the motherboard problem? My assumption is it is but I do not have another motherboard to test it out... anyone had/have similar problem? Thanks
It could be a motherboard problem, but, this may sound silly, but it could also be a stuck up power or reset button. I had this experience with a desktop pc where the power button got stuck in its "press" position. Try removing the connection of these switches from the mboard and use a metal screw driver to act as the switch by momentarily shorting the power switch connection on the board.
--you can also check the cmos battery of the pc. These newer boards would refuse to even power up if the cmos battery are drained.
