Thank you Sylvia_Intel,
I did as you asked and upgraded to vrom v21 to v23 but without any change. I also replaced the jumper with a spare out I took from another computer but the message remains the same and it still will not boot.
Unfortunately as I upgraded to from v23 to v25 the upgrade told me it went ok but afterwards the screen never shows the post screen and not the jumper message, it only flashes with various colors for a few seconds after which it goes black for a brief period of time before it starts over with the flashes. It does not seem to react to F-keys, or usb-stick after this meaning that an upgrade to v27 or anything else for that matter is beyond me.
