I was formatting some old harddrives and toying with my desktop recently and now it wont post. When I turn it on the LEDs turn on, the DVD drive has power. The harddrives seem to have power to them as do the fans.
One time during troubleshooting I got it to post,kind of, it displayed the following: Award BootBlock BIOS v1.0 BIOS ROM Checksum error
I popped out the motherboard battery to attempt to fix this issue (reset the bios settings). I have also done the following to attempt to fix it:
- removed all hardrives to only the boot disk
- reduced RAM to one stick
- removed video card and tried onboard video
- attempted to boot with various live disks / recovery disks
What should be the next move?
