Today I just found an old PcChips M571 here at my university about to get thrown away. I decided to test it and had a few issues:
- I can't get it to work with onboard video, but I can see the POST screen just fine with a PCI video card (yes, I changed the jumpers accordingly)
- In both cases, when I turn the PC on, the keyboard's LEDs flicker, but show no sign of life afterwards. The keyboard is working just fine on another mobo.
I triple-checked every jumper, tried booting with nothing but the video card, monitor and keyboard attached. POST screen asks for F1 but nothing works (not even Ctrl+Alt+Del and Num/Caps/Scroll Lock)
Is this board toast? Is there anything else I should try? I tried an USB keyboard but it doesn't even turn on (guess I'd have to enable USB in BIOS first?)
