Question about Dell Precision 340 PC Desktop
This dell will not boot past the bios, I have taken out the battery and tried the various jumpers. They did dump the bios and cmos which was reloaded. It hangs up after it loads the adaptec ultra/ultra, there used to be a window where I turned the ultra/ultra off. The window no longer comes up and it will not go into setup or reach a floppy drive.
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.
