I have a dell dimesion desktop, with pentium 3.2ghz, 2 gb ram running XP sp3.
Since yesterday, it wont boot up from the power on button, but if i clear the cmos, it will autoboot. it will restart ok once booted, but if i shutdown, i have to clear cmos again before it will start. However, after i insert the power cable, all the lights come on for just a second then it dies. I have tried playing with the RAM but to no avail. Is there anyone who knows of a similiar prob ?
I have the same problem , and did not know what to do , every time I have to clear the cmos to get a boot to the set up screen.
How do you update the Bios..??????
any help would be very appreciated..
