About two hours ago I posted about a memory upgrade for this Compaq I’ve got here. Now, for some strange reason, the system doesn’t work anymore at all. When I power it on, I get a white screen with Compaq in red in it. After about 2 secs the system freezes.
When I keep on hitting a key after pressing the power button, I get the post screen saying “Keyboard error”. I guess that’s because I kept on pressing that key… and then it crashes as well!
So, does a Compaq Deskpro have some secret setting to reset the mainboard or something? I already stripped the system to 32mb of Compaq mem, 1 Celeron 300 CPU and some old ISA VGA card… that should do it… not?
I always hated Compaq computers… and now I’m getting to hate them more and more…
