: While performing system maint. for the end user of this machine, I noted
: that the BIOS hadn't been upgraded from the factory shipped version. I
: downloaded RomPaq SP15611 from the support website and copied to the
: system.
: At that time, I booted the system with a Windows 98 boot diskette and ran
: the file to create the ROM Upgrade boot diskette.
: Once created, I powered off the sytem and rebooted with the ROM diskette
: in the drive. The system started the ROM upgrade and then appeared to be
: complete and powered off. (I have never had any of the other Compaq
: systems that I work on power off at the end of the ROM upgrade) - The
: system did have a fully charged battery, and was plugged into the AC power
: pack during this entire process.
: When I powered the system back on, the screen never powered up, but the
: floppy drive does perform a seek. There are no error beeps, or any other
: responses from the system. If a floppy disk is not in the drive, it
: repeatedly performs a seek.
: Please advise. I have not seen this happen in the past.

I oso downloaded the SP15611. now my system having the same problem as you too. I have check with compaq service centre, they say i has to change the whole system board. They told me this problem cannot be solved have to replace parts.
