There are several possible jumper configurations on my mobo ash1 ash2 intri cmos and obr my acer aspire desktop m3100 won't boot at all I just installed a new psu & cpu
If you mean the plastic plug jumpers located on the hard drive to set master . master/slave ........
single or master :::::
master with slave ::'::
note the plastic jumper is ' located at the rear of the hard drive next to the IDE/SATA lead/s
The jumpers should be printed on top of the hard drive.
If its not booting at all it might be the ram or leads from motherboard to hard drive.
Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO THE HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty if its a flat 40pin ide this will be the first to fail Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd and floppy (If Applicable) have secure connections and are not faulty. or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs power and data to travel through every working device and continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
Restart your computer During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key this will vary depending on your computer and operating system Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart This will set the boot order If this fails you might try some of these Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc
ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)
AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)
AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc
Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)
