In my pile of retro hoarding treasure/junk, I have a 486 PC Chips board. I've had a few light attempts at trying to fire her up but nothing seems to happen. Just wondering if there's anything else I can try or assume it's a dead board and throw it away.
Board looks almost like this except socketed cache chips. So probably an earlier model.
The board came with jumpers set to what looked to be for an Intel DX2/80 CPU, I can't get the blasted heatsink/fan off to tell what it is. I plugged 1, then 2 72 pin SIMM's in and no post. The only card I had in was a working VGA ISA ET4000. I then grabbed a PC Speaker from one of the other machines and plugged that in and nadda. Reversed the polarities on the speaker just incase but still no beeps. PSU fires up, cpu fan spins but nothing. I grabbed a DX33 CPU set the jumpers and still no beeps or anything. Took the video card out and no beeps.
