Anyone know if a Vaio ~F150 will post without a HD and
w/o a battery installed? The one I have will not, and the
screen does not illuminate. Possibly needs a replacement
cpu module?

thx for info, -ph

Posting has little or nothing to do with batteries or hard drives (if it
does, the manufacturer should be shot). On the VAIOs that won't post,
it's a mainboard issue.

On the F150 the cpu is on a plug-in board
which makes substitution easier. Unforch
I do not have a substitute cpu board to try
out, but can wait for one as the Vaio doesn't take much storage room. Of
course, the problem may lie elsewhere.
Thx for the tip about battery & hd. -p
