new sound card - still dead :(

Hi,

I'm trying to revive my pismo, after 2 yrs being dead. i was convinced it was the sound card (since just before it died, the port became very loose and was not maintaining a connection) so i bought a new one, installed it today w/ your guide... but still nothing.

before its demise, the pismo was in perfect condition, brand new battery and all, so i just don't get this.

could i have re-wired things wrong? (maybe i put the connectors in backwards - i can't figure that out since they work both ways)

could the faulty connection 2 yrs ago have fried something else, c/o the bad sound card?

i am so bummed.

Hi, The first thing to try is to disconnect the PRAM battery. If there is a fault with it the Pismo will not boot but it will run without it. You would just have to update your date each time you turn the computer on or get a new battery. Good luck Ralph
