I have an old PC with the following specs:
Compaq Presario SR1200IL
- MoBo: ASUS Kelute (a7v8x-la)
- Chipset: VIA KM400A
- Processor: AMD Athlon XP
The system is working (sometimes), but when I restart sometime after usage, not even the POST screen is showing, the monitor is going to sleep mode as no signal on dispaly, the keyboard lights are not working etc..
Instead the HDD light is turned on continuously.
It is related to HDD because I disconnected all drives (CD, floppy, HDD).
There is no sound coming from the PC at this point. But all the fans are working.
But the PC speakers are working because when I removed RAM, the system is beeping.
Even after I restarted the system by completely disconnecting power, the issue persists. But After 4-5hrs I am able to use the system.
I am not able to figure out what the issue is.
Could anyone help me?
Thanks in advance.
