    Try to Flash the BOIS. You should be able to find a BOIS Flash update or something like that. Download it and run it. It should work. But u need a 3 1/2 in Floppy drive to do this, unless u have an option to boot from usb, but it only staying for less than a sec i doubt that will work

    noalittle, disconnect all cables to drives, remove all cards & ram except for videocard & 1 stick of ram. look at the silver top cans(capacitors) on the motherboard that they are not domed nor leaking brown stuff.
