oy! im probly spitting out an old thread, but maybe this is a quickie for most. here goes: i got an iopener off ebay. it powers on fine, i get a black screen with IOPENER (word) across it. i see a mouse pointer appear in upper left corner. then the blue screen appears with a menu (welcome to) and a short musical tune (no voices) and then i see the modem light flashing. it stops flashing after a bit. OK. here is what i have so far:
i removed the back and rf shield
i installed a slim cpu cooler
i installed a 9mm ibm travelstar 5gb hd
i put it all back together (everything fits nice!)
i used the y cable adapter for keyboard/mouse
i powered it on, pressed ctrl-alt-esc like a woodpecker on a redwood!
i crossed fingers fer good luk. did not work, no bios screen, booted normally into blue screen menu
i tried the regular f1, delete keys. nothing
i tried tried tab 4444 esc 4444, ctrl-alt-home, and all combinations thereof,
to get some response outta this thing!
Can anyone tell me what version # this is by the info above?
Do you think i need a mod bios to make this thing work?
I have read a post that the mouse and keyboard should be plugged in reversed? Is this true? I tried it with no luck at all.
Thanks for all your help! Sorry if this topic has been beaten to death, but i couldn't find anything that fit my condition exactly!
