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 cpu cooling fan will not start spinning unless "helped" with tip of pen to spin over.If I dont start it manually,I get No cpu fan message,and shut down.I just replaced fan,as old had broken...


If the CPU fan speed is too slow or not working at all, the computer will shut itself off automatically to prevent damage to CPU from overheating. You may end up having to throw more money at the problem and get a new fan. I went to Compaq's web site, looked up your particualr computer, found out what type of fan you needed, and I did some research. I recommend getting the fan in the following link. It's very cheap, and has good reviews. The other fans on the site all have bad reviews. Hope this helps.

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.

Old compaq presario new processor


The AMD K6 II / 350 has a 100 MHz bus speed and a 3.5 multiplier. I was online with a tech at HP and even they don't know, but if they send the motherboard manual as promised and it has the info I'll post a comment. They did say it can't be done in the BIOS. I can tell you often the major manufacturers used boards where the jumper locations were soldered and didn't even have pins to change the settings, making it pretty hard to upgrade the processor.

Do you see any jumpers on the board at all? Sometimes the multiplier & clock speed info is printed right on the board in tiny white letters.

Good luck.

Cd rom


Is this a new CD-ROM? Usually if the BIOS cannot see the drive it's a problem with the jumper setting on the back of the drive. Try setting the jumper to cable select. Let me know if that helps.
