I bought an Ebay opener.
Came to me packagaged ok, but the heatsink was not screwed on.
There is a cap beneath the S of the "Socket7"
Maybe C166, it is next to Q16, had come undone. I soldered it back on.
Long story short...
Green power light = yes
reseat memory, chip, cmos battery.
I also shorted the CMOS battery.
Also, between c139 and RN15 (between the video chip and modem) there is a chip that looks like it was taken off.
I have pressed the reset key, and kept it down during a boot.
I think this is a v3 (goop, good ide headers)
Is there anything I can do to see what is going wrong?
The WinChip is getting hot, C277, C248 are both getting power, C166, C147 also are getting power.
Seems like the video chip isn't doing anything.
I can't get the idiot Ebay seller to tell me what they did.
