Tried the old magic thumb treatment yet? put it on firm surface like antistatic foam on the bench, mash the BIOS chip into the socket with your thumb, mash the KBC chip in, mash anything else in sockets, put thumb in middle of each SIMM, mash and wiggle. Put thumb on CPU, mash and work the lever back and forth a few times, and lock it down while pushing, exercise the VGA card up and down in the slot a bit, clear CMOS again for good luck, stare at it threateningly for two minutes, then power it on again just DARING it to have a problem now.
2017: Basement full of ancient PC stuff, starting to go through it. 2021: Still starting, heh, many setbacks. So what's this BitWrangler guy's deal ??? >>> Taming the pile, specs to target?
