Question about Asrock P4VT8+ P4 PT800 Prescott Ready Motherboard (MOTASR19)
Asrock Prescott 800 has a P4 2.4Ghz/1M/400Mhz CPU.
Then a 3.0Ghz/1M/533Mhz is installed just to see if it fires up.
Attempting to start up fails.
After re-installing 2.4Ghz/1M/400Mhz CPU, the system does not fire up anymore.
Not even into the Bios screen.
Clearing Cmos, no change.
Reset the PSU by removing the power cord and then press the power button, same result.
There is CPU activity though, the CPU-led flashes when the power button is pressed.
Next, after a second, the led flashes again for several seconds, but still no boot.
Finally after a few resets, the system fires up and start VMware ESXi.
Then when logged in, no PCI network devices are present, so I shutdown the system again and check the network devices.
Then rebooting the system, but the system did not fire up.
Removing the Network cards and other hardware, did not make the system firing up again.
First, check the PSU on another puter if available. If it works, the MB is the most likely culprit.
Check the capcitors (round tower looking things around the MB). If any are bulging or show brown "dirt", the MB needs replacing unless you know how to replace capacitors (Youtube has tutorials if your brave enough).
You may also have a damaged southbridge. Ebay may have replacement chips (replacing is similar to the capacitors).
