You do not use motherboard to Reset O/S. If all you are doing is trying to reset Windows X/P, Please tell me what machine you are using and do have the Restore disks.

I need to reset the jumpers for my hard drive quit and i'm trying to install another HD and it reads no OS also will not let me install an Os either?


If you have installed the hard drive and it reads no OS, that means you have a blank hard drive. You need to install Windows on it.
If you took a hard drive out of your system and are replacing it with a new one, place the jumpers on the new one in the same location as they are on the old one.
Different hard drive brands use different jumper locations. When in doubt, the jumper location is printed on the front of the drive or, in the case of a Western Digital, is printed on the bottom of the drive right below the jumper posts.

Can't remember my password on hp 6000 computer how


Are you talking about the BIOS password, or the windows password?
A hard reset will probably reset your BIOS password (see this thread),

To reset your windows password, you need your XP CD-ROM and follow this instruction.

Was loading windows XP and Bios locked up


To reset the bios to factory settings on most motherboards you need to short a jumper AFTER removing the battery.

It would be useful to know make and model of motherboard in question.

WARNING: DO NOT move CMOS jumper with battery iinstalled or power applied. Make sure you return the CMOS jumper to normal position before reinstalling the battery or powering up.

Sorry for the in your face warning but don't want you to damage the motherboard.

Regards B.

Load a new hard drive


Hi Dutshy1,

On back of the hard drive did you move the jump on your main hard drive and set it to Master and your secondary hard drive set to Slave.

Where the jumper is suppose to go is printed on the sticker on top of your hard drive.

The jumper is the little plastic thing on the back of the hard drive connecting two pins together next to the power port and where the IDE cable is suppose to connect.

let me know if that works.
