The motherboard will not boost past the debug code of C1. Well...it will but only twice so far out of the 30+ times I have tried. During the two times it did load, windows froze and I had to reboot. When I rebooted, it went back to doing the same thing. I don't know if this is a bios problem or what. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Make A boot disk from a working Windows 98 machine. After you make the boot disk, copy the MS 'debug' to the floppy. Boot the laptop from the floppy.(this might not be possible due to a setting in the BIOS.) Search online for MS Debug +clear CMOS Run the Debug program and type in the commands exactly as written. reboot, and you should be able to go into the BIOS by holding F2. That's it. If you can't boot from the floppy, remove the hard drive. the computer should boot from the floppy, no matter what the BIOS setting is.
If you have access to the computer when it's turned on, you could try one of those programs that remove the password from the BIOS, by invalidating its memory. However, it might happen you don't have one of those programs when you have access to the computer, so you'd better learn how to do manually what they do. You can reset the BIOS to its default values using the MS-DOS tool DEBUG (type DEBUG at the command prompt. You'd better do it in pure MS-DOS mode, not from a MS-DOS shell window in Windows). Once you are in the debug environment enter the following commands:
O 70 17 O 71 17 Quit
PHOENIX BIOS Code:
O 70 FF O 71 17 Quit
GENERIC Invalidates CMOS RAM. Should work on all AT motherboards (XT motherboards don't have CMOS) Code:
O 70 2E O 71 FF Quit Note that the first letter is a "O" not the number "0". The numbers which follow are two bytes in hex format.
get a debug card, put in the pci slot, put the processor, memory, hdd keyb, mouse on the place, double check it..turn on the power , read the last post code that display...watch for the blink of the 3 keyb lamp during power on...if there is no blink..then your o/b vga not initialized by the bios and (maybe) reading the other exp slot. if there is a blink then check your monitor and cabling..record the last post code that display on the debug card (POST code display card), shutdown then remove all your device except for processor,ram,debug card , vga(if any external)...turn on the power again..did the post code is different or its the same with the last time? shutdown,remove the ram, and vga (if any ext vga)..power up again (with only debug card and proc) did the code display the same or no ? remove the proc and still with the debug card inserted in the slot..power up...what in the display?same? you should be able to diagnose that..may be the proc (code 00 C0 C1 C2 ), may be the ram...maybe your o/b vga was dead..maybe your bios rom was still have bug (ECS ??=>does have a 2-3 years waranty..am i right?)
