Ok, I tried a usb drive, that didnt work. However I went and got the exact version of the bio's that was supposed to work for my processor, without the jumper in, it cycled between post code 26 and 31 for 20 minutes without shutting off. Since I dont have display i had no choice but to shut the system off and see what happened.
I put the jumper back into the motherboard and now the post cycles but I have a white LED flashing at the top and it repeats 36 to 60 and is in a loop.
@Oggie00 and Ranky, I think it will be a good idea to do some basic troubleshooting in order to find out if there is any defective component on your system.
Please let me have the AA# of your board. It will be located on a white sticker label with a bar code.
Please follow these steps:
- Take the system out of the chassis and using minimal configuration. Please use only the motherboard, processor, power supply. Since there is no memory installed, the motherboard should give you a 3 beeps sound. - Please disconnect hard drives, or any other devices such as optical drive.
- Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-028780.htm?wapkw=clear+cmos+battery#datetime
- Add 1 memory stick and try to access BIOS.
Let me know the results.
