Default Dell Dimension XPS B933 Motherboard PIII 933mhz

I won this on ebay:

Dell Dimension XPS B933 Motherboard PIII 933mhz 128mb

Anyone have experience with this or something similar?

I'm trying to figure out if there's a power switch pair of pins or how
that works.

Thanks.

Do be aware that the power supply connector is NON standard. Also note the
3.3V
connector, which is also non standard. You might consider getting a Dell
power
supply from Dell or PC power and Cooling.

Also the front panel connector is not documented in the Dell docs. Try here
for one that should work;

Would that PC work if you put a hard drive jumper between pins 6 and 8?

Nope, because that is the same a holding the power button in.

And a hard drive jumper wont fit anyway.

If one were to momentarily tap a screwdriver on both pins at once,
would that work?

The screwdriver trick between pins 6 and 8 appears to have booted the
machine.

However, when I attach my hard drive and boot, Windows pops up a blue
screen of death immediately. Windows says it detected something
unusual about my machine and is halting the boot to prevent damage to
my PC. Any ideas as to what might cause Windows to say this?

Thanks.

Fraid not, never seen that.

Likely something Dell specific.
