  1. Well my computer is an old dg43nb motherboard and I shut it off for several hours and when I tried restarting it, it wouldnt post. After having this issue before I went straight to the jumper pins and reset it. After that it started fine again but instead of my usual green power light on the front the red light is on.

    Not sure what to do, possible the battery is bad? I had to replace it once before... I think its almost ten years old pc now, I build it good :D

    Been pretty happy with the old intel board! I was skeptical of the aluminum heat sinks but all ive had to do is hard drives and ram a few times and the psu that once really, and the battery! Not bad! Wonder if the intel boards are any good these days, hell this is from 07 I think :D
