Question about HP Compaq dc7100 PC Desktop
I have an HP Compaq dc7100 CMT (P4 ?GHz, 512 MB RAM, DVD RW, DVD ROM, no HDD due to its falure) that won't let me into BIOS. If I am not quick enough to press F10, it tries to boot
and stops when it realizes that there is no OS
If I do press F10 fast enough, it declares the situation (RAM, drives, errors), asks me to save the changes by pressing F1,
displays BIOS language choice,
and freezes there.
When I try to boot from CD (Knoppix 6.0), which was possible no more than a week ago, it doesn't go any further than the splash screen
and freezes again.
I have tried several things:
1) Attaching a floppy drive with a bootable floppy - no reaction.
2) Removing all RAM to see if the system remarks it - it does. Five beeps and the screen stays off
3) Disconnecting optical drives, PCI cards, network connection - nothing
4) Replacing the power supply with a verified one - no change
5) Clearing CMOS - nothing
6) Putting a new battery even though it shouldn't make any difference, and it didn't.
What I have not done was replacing the processor and the motherboard. I only have those of that class (Intel socket 775) and I would like to avoid buying one or the other unless I know which one, if either, is bad.
If anyone knows or has an idea what to do, I would be extremely thankful for your input.
Thanks in advance
Try this,Remove the TPM and start computer,
TPM Card for dc7100
On the desktop and workstation models, the connector is located under the drive bay on the right hand side of the computer. In order to recover the system you should remove the TPM module and re-install the OS.
