[ This is all a little confusing to me. I tryed to remove the batery to reset the bios and i am not sure if i did it right or not. Now it only powers on for a couple seconds and then shuts off. Did I not leave it out long enough and I know it was a battery i just hope its the right one. If somebody could help me understand this a little clearer i would appreciate it. thankz

OK I give up.. am working on a 4150 Dell Inspiron. Tried everything above to no avail. My chipset matches nothing up there. This one is a 49lfOO4A33-4C-NH. Is running Phoenix BIOS revision A06.

ANYTHING would be a help since I can't get past the post screen to try to flash the bios even.

Thanx
