I did everything you said and it wouldnt turn on at first...
out of curiousity, i turned off the psu...switched the jumper to the clear cmos pins and powered it on, and touched the front panel connectors together, and it turns on, with a couple beeps
Connected ram and video card and keyboard...
I guess the power button works too, it just has to be on the clear cmos setting...
Everytime it boots it says "CMOS settings wrong" "CMOS/gpnv checksum bad". Press f1 to enter setup or f2 to restore defaults and continue. I hit f2 and it continued booting...it had no hard drives or anything in but im guessing it would work fine.
I'd rather have The bios settings correct and not cleared everytime i boot
I tried switching the battery with a known working one..didnt work..tried removing the battery for a couple mins and replacing it...didnt work
At least we're getting somewhere
