Compaq system board 686,0MB (320756) board manual


That's an old mainboard (Motherboard), used in a Compaq Presario 5716 desktop computer. (And perhaps a few other Compaq Presario's)

1) Uses a Slot 1 (Intel) processor slot.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slot_1

2) Maximum Intel Slot 1 processor that can be used, is an Intel Pentium III, with a 100MegaHertz Front Side Bus. (100MHz FSB)
Maximum frequency rate for the processor is 700MHz.
('Speed')

http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Pentium-III/TYPE-Pentium%20III%20%28Katmai%29.html

(Scroll the page down)

3) Ram memory is SDR Sdram at 100MHz. Or also known as PC-100. (168 pin. 82 on each side. Two Locating Notches on bottom. Commonly just known as Sdram, but that is a misnomer)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC100

Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory is 384MegaByte.
Maximum Amount for each ram memory slot is 128MB.
There are 3 ram memory slots.

4) Do not know what the jumper settings on the motherboard are.

5) Do not know what the Front Panel header pinout is.

6) Can run Windows XP Home Edition, but do not expect a world of performance.

I need to acess the BIOS on my PREsario s4020WM but i need a password to do it is old and was my parents so i cannot figure it out so i jut need the options of what the password would be or how to reset it


Disconnect the power. Remove or reset the jumper near the cmos battery. Connect and turn on your computer for a minute. Turn it off. Reset the jumper to it's original setting and you're done. Put everything back together and you're good to go. Good luck!

Compaq presario sr1800nx won't turn on


Check the jumper settings on the DVDRW. Depending on IDE location, you need to set the jumpers accordingly. If you have the main system hard drive on the same IDE channel as the DVDRW, set the jumpers on the DVDRW to slave, if that don't work, set them to Cable Select. I'm assuming it's an IDE drive and not SATA.

Use the HDD from my old Compaq Presario as a back-up storage disc


Yes it is possible.
a) No precautions needed except the normal grounding you always do when working on computer components.
b) Yes, make sure your jumpers on BOTH drives are set - one to master and one to slave. The new drive does not have to go on the same cable as the old drive but no matter which cable you put it on make sure the jumpers are set for both devices on the cable.

Im looking for the jumper settings on a compaq motherboared. its a presario 7478


hello CAVdesert,
I don't think you ever have to change the jumper settings on the motherboard.You may need to change in few cases but otherwise, changing motherboard jumper settings is not recommended.
However, if you need to configure the jumper settings for your Hard Drive, CD/DVD Drive etc, Please refer to the following document.

Jumper Settings for the Installation of Hard Disks and CD, CDRW, and DVD Drives
