Question about Soyo SY-P4VDA Motherboard
I have a Soyo SY P4vda motherboard in a computer I no longer use and want to donate. When I turn it on, the CPU fan and the fan on the video card both run. I can hear the hard drive attempt to kick in. The CD Rom light blinks off and on. However, that's as far as things get. It will not boot.
I put a bootable CD in the drive but that will not fire up either. I have removed the memory and put it back in; same with the video card. I also cleared the CMOS by placing the jumper on pins 1&2 and then back to pins 2&3 after at least 30 seconds. I removed the battery and stuck it back in after 30 seconds.
My thoughts are the problem is either the Bios, maybe the HD. If it was the HD, I would think the CD Rom would fire up a CD.
Thanks for your suggestions.
Best thing to do is disconnect floppy, take all other board/pc card out of the computer remove cdrom, now you just have a hard drive
turn it on see where it goes. if it doesnt work try a different hard drive or just the cdrom but make sure you have boot from cdrom on in your bios.
