In a nutshell - I plug in the processor and power goes away. It sucks as i thought i was pretty much done.
Months ago everything seemed to work -- i've got a V3 with the DC to DC mod implemented (minus the diode so you have to unplug it to stop the processor from heating up). Was booting Win98. Life was fine. So I pulled everything down tonight to install the diode. Did the diode install and power it up. I checked power w/o the processor to ensure that the DC to DC mod is working and yes, all measures fine. I did notice though that the front lighted switch seems to have no effect -- i.e. it's "ON" and pushing it has no affect. I then plug in the processor and the green light flashes and then nothing. I measure power at the input to Q16 adn read zero volts. I thought that there could be a loading issue so i unplugged the disk drive but this had no affect. I have not messed wiht the current limiting resistor yet -- that is yet to come.
Any ideas? Any other places i should measure?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
