So, my employee was complaining of having the fan on the PC going nuts constantly.
I've gotten the following diagnostic lights and the ITHR error only ONCE:
Yellow A + D - A possible floppy or hard drive failure has occurred.
Yellow B - doesn't exist on the dell diag lights
Yellow B + D Memory modules are detected, but a memory configuration or compatibility error exists.
Yellow D - Other failure has occurred.
Unplugging the USB worked once, but not now. when I turn the PC on, the fan just spins to max and gets no POST.
The Diag lights are different all the time.
Also, when unplugging the USB after doing a CMOS reset, I can't get it to go any farther because... I can't hit F1 to continue... that's where I'm at when it TRIES to POST. it just stops and waits for F1. installing a keyboard afterwards doesn't work as the keyboard failure is there already and there are no PS2 ports on this box.
I'm debating ordering the motherboard. I just want to make sure it's the right part.
