Quantex not booting after upgrade
« on: Jun 15, 2009, 10:48 AM »
Hi everyone, long time no post.

I'm in the process of upgrading my Pentium III Quantex to a Pentium 4. I got a new pull board, a P4 2.4ghz chip, and 1gb of ddr memory. Everything should work, but when I turn it on, all that shows up on the screen is the "Intel Inside Pentium 4" logo, and doesn't go into bios or anything. Any reason for this?

Thanks,

JoeS

If you press TAB, can you see the text-based BIOS POST screen?

Sure happy to see that  someone is  still using a Quantex.


My daughter is stilll using the  first puter  I owned (in the 80's) and it had a gigantic 35 GB HD

She just lets the  kids (my great grand kids) play with it . as I sent her a new dell  a few years ago

No monkeys available there Ace...just kids
