Question about Cornerstone ASUS TXP4 Socket 7 AT Motherboard (CLEAN PULLS)
After I hit the power button on my Asus TXP4 MOBO it just sits there. Power is getting to (AT) P8 & P9 as well as the the switch. I replaced the Power Supply Unit (and switch) with a brand new one I luckily found. No change. I do not see any lit lights on the MOBO. But after I turn on and off the switch 50 or 60 times it finally turns on (CPU fan) but it just sits there and does'nt boot. The ISA video card lights up both red and green. Installed, is Window 95 which I must have to run a PF cutting saw the computer is connected to. So, my delema is to replace the motherboard and video card with another ASUS TXP4 (so my hard drive will work) or find a compatible MOBO that will except my hard drive? What MOBO is compatible with the TXP4 so my hard drive will work? Is this right or can I do something else? The software that is installed on the hard drive to run the saw is no longer sold and I must use this hard drive until it fails. I do not have the physical software to reload on another hard drive. Please help!
Most likely you are looking at a bad motherboard, there is probably a break somewhere in the connections. Check for blown capicators that would be a smoking gun. You can use a different motherboard but it has to be one that is compatible with your CPU. Most motherboards will come with a driver CD so you should be ok. It shouldn't be a big deal with your Operating System or Hard Drive if you replaced your motherboard. Otherwise, you could upgrade to a new system and do a image copy of your HDD to a new computer/HDD. I recommend Acronis True Image makes it really easy.
