What is the specific model number that is on the service tag?  Per that article, have you made any hardware changes to the system as to render it "non stock"?


You might check the board number, and revision number.  Maybe it got "upgraded" to a different revision at the factory that wasn't publicized.  Grasping at straws here man.


If I can get a solid model number, it makes looking up info a lot easier.  I get that BIOS upgrade for a MCP61PM-HM motherboard.


EDIT:  Check caps on it, bulging/leaking etc.  SOP on older systems.  I made it through a whole post without ragging on the "3 Letter boards"....darn.....almost.
