Fuel Carcass : Signs of Life?

Unread postby commuter-roach » Tue Jan 30, 2018 7:14 am

Hello everyone.

Some time ago I purchased a Fuel 'carcass' , i.e. just the bare skeleton with case, power supply, motherboard, graphics card, cpu but no ram , no hdd. Now the cpu is gone too, as I sold it. I have never really tested this machine and now I would like to sell it for parts. If I connect a serial cable to the L1 port in the motherboard I get a list of :

It goes on like this for a while then stops. Is there anything I can try to debug? Is there a way to test the hw and the power supply for being functional?

Thanks
