Question about Panasonic CF18DJAMXKM Notebook
While updating the bios from v16 to v17 the computer simply shut down. It had started uploading fine and got to roughly 7000 out of a 8000 hex numeral when it died. I think the floppy somehow got corrupted. We went through roughly 17 other machines before this one, with no problems. Now all that happens when power is applied and a boot is attempted, is the green battery (if installed) and computer power LED's on the right front light up. There is no hard drive activity, lcd activity, floppy drive activity etc. etc. We've already tried booting without several peripherals installed, keyboard, floppy drive, battery, and tried disconnecting the cmos battery for 24 hours, which measures 3.1 volts. I even tried booting with out the hard drive installed and didn't even get "No operating system found". Any help would be appreciated.
Seems the chip on motherboard is messed up. Please check the following link for your options if you can't manage to get to the BIOS.
Buying a bios chip will be economical but will need extra precaution when installing also check this:
