Dell System Precision Workstation 340 will not boot

Thought I would seek your free answer as to how to restore or reset the 340 bios or cmos which ever I managed to turn off messing around with the sccsi stuff. The pc will not boot past the adaptec bios. I agree to your terms as long as they are actually free as you advertized. Thanks Richard

    Thank you for your input, there are three sets of pins, two with jumpers and one without. This is a tower, not sure if it makes a difference. I took the cmos cell to mean the battery, I disconnected it for several minutes, just lost the confi data, which was reloaded automatically, the same thing with the jumpers, removing the one on the left does the confi data, the one on the right gets the bios. But neither gets me past the Adaptec AHA-2940 Ultra/Ultra with BIOS v1.23, the computer stops booting at that point, where I turned off the scci stuff, and the window won't open and allow me back in and I cannot enter setup. You ideals are appreciated.

Dell Precision 340 will not boot past the bios


It is possible that one of the drives are causing the proble. Disconnect all drives Hard drives, CD, DVD, BLUERAY,Floppy etx and turn the system on if it boots then shut it down and connect the drives one at a time until you find the one at fault.. If this fails then the problem resides in the main board itself, YOu said you cleard the cmos, try reseating the processor (removing and then putting it back) then flashing the bios (clear the cmos) ,, if that fails then you may need to replace the mainboard.
