    Hello to all wise :worthy:

    I have a compaq presario SR2170NX
    Motherboard RC415ST-HM

    I'm so glad to have found a place of knowledge. Well I have a big problem with my pc or the bios I think. All it does is this it says
    AMERICAN MEGATRENDS
    AMBIOS (C)2006 American Trend, Inc
    Bios Date 04/11/2007 Ver 08.00.13
    Copyright 2007 by Hewlett-Packard Company
    CPU: INTEL (R) PENTIUM (R) 4 CPU 3.00 GHz with HT Technology
    Speed: 3.00 HGz
    at the bottom says
    (C)American Trends, Inc
    63-0100-000001-00101111-041107-RS400-RC415ST-Y2KC.

    I can't do nothing else just soon as I turn the computer on it goes to that screen

    So I found someone who sell bios chip on ebay for my motherboard and such and today it came and I installed it like the instructions but the same thing again....PLEASE HELP ME TO FIND OUT WHAT'S WRONG WITH MY PC:( :( :( :( I have pic of it but couldn't post link or pics :confused:

    Have you tried removing any of your ram as it's possible one stick has gone bad and thats whats causing the problem.

    It depends how many sticks of it you have but I would start by removing everything from the system (disk drive and networked cables etc.) and see if it boots from there.

    If you haven't already you could also try going into the BIOS if it gets that far and settings the system to its fail safe defaults.

    Daz I really wish I could not it only gets me to the same thing. I bought a new bios chip and still did the same thing. I only have 1 stick of RAM 1GB but when I take it off it makes beeping sounds. Also took out everything and no boot. I just really wish I can put the pictures or the link of how my screen looks. I really wish it take me to the bios I can't even press F1 I'm kinda down because my daughter needs a computer for Middle School and I'm trying to fix it but no go :(

    Problem solved

    Guys I'm so happy :D

    Thank You guys I'm so happy I have found this forum with so many wonderful talented people here.:biggrin: Problem solved. So I took advice from everyone here and guess what it was the memory stick gone bad so and desperation I look and saw that both my pc took same RAM so I tried it and it gave me the no bootmgr and to press control alt delete. So I took it upstairs and it gave me the es F10 and F11 recovery and I did it and now its installing windows :worthy:. THANK YOU GUYS FOR HELPING ME WITH MY ISSUE AND NOW MY DAUGHTER IS READY FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL:D:D
