    Hi Guys,

    My computer died on me suddenly and i have tried almost everyhting
    i know. Right now i cannot boot from a boot floppy and i cannot even
    enter the bios. HP told me to remove the CMOS battery for some time
    and plug it back. I did still no luck. I have tried it disconnecting
    all the peripherals still no luck. It looks like my motherboard is
    fried but i am not sure. Any Ideas?

    I have a HP Pavilion xt 915, intel celeron, 1.1 ghz, windows xp.

    Not sure about this mainboard, but some boards also have a 'reset-jumper
    or -switch' which you might need to set, after you take out the battery and
    then plug everything back in...?

    Best of luck,
