I am new here and I don't want to step on any toes. I have; as always, lots of questions, and at least as many answers. my most current question is kind of interesting in my, at least a few days of experience, I have never seen this before so I am here seeking the wise and willing to endevor on my behave to puzzle with me how to unlock this box: Dell 4700 service tag 559pp61 has an upgraded cpu SL7PY bios version A10 four sticks of ram white slot ddr2@400
and BLK slot DDR2@667
so 4 Gb please feel free to comment and so forth But the issue is now after several years of service I went and cleande the interior with a ESD vacuum pulled the cooler and cleaned the grease replace the grease yes I know call it what ever it still looks and feels like grease and I know there are all kinds if new products STOP. the issue is after all is assembled the bios displays tyhe dell LOGO and will even when (F2) is pressed show "entering setup" but everything hangs at the point the activity indicator is hung a more than 90 % but stops there even over night. now I have attempted the reset Cmos procedures and have the display change to text of bios structureindicators in dos and then text error "Floppy Diskette seek failure please run setup" or "invalide configuration please run setup" now what is very puzzleing is that I can not read from a floppy disk nor enter setup to change anything ANY SUGGESTION?
lets twist it shall we see if we can break it all together and send it to the recycler where it probably belongs BUT FUSRT lets twist it and see if it will still spin fast enough to watch netflix.
