HP8300 killed by BIOS changes

HP Recommended
HP8300 CMT

I have the problem described here:


Changing some settings in the BIOS causes the machine to fail to boot. The screen remains black and the fan spins up to 100% of maximum speed.


The accepted solution is to replace the motherboard, which hardly counts as a solution.


Is there a real solution to this problem that will recover the board? Obviously I have tried clearing the CMOS and leaving the machine powered off, etc.

Welcome to the forum.

I am not a HP employee.


Your problem is not good.


You may be out of options if clearing CMOS did not fix the problem.
