Motherboard replace processor cpu i have an hp pavilion a820n tower with no cpu or power supply can u tell me what kind i need?

the processor to fit the mobo is a pentium 4 socket 775. the original was a 3.2G according to the HP website.
most standard 500 watt power supplies should fit.
it does concern me why there is no processor or power supply in it though.
are you sure the mobo is ok? the only reason I would think these parts have been removed is because the mobo is dead and they've been transplanted into something else.

Maybe you put the wrong jumper of the power jumper for the front panel.

You can see the switch to turn on the PC right, then make sure that switch correctly installed on the right jumper on the board. Follow the cable to attach to the mother board.

How do you get the CMOS back on the Acer Aspire M1640

If you can enter the BIOS, by pushing either F2 or the Delete key after starting up the computer and seeing the first splash screen, you can reset the BIOS to factory settings. If you cannot enter the bios, in order to reset the CMOS, you must open the tower, look for the small CMOS battery (small watch style battery) and look for a set up 3 pins near the battery. There will be a jumper on on two of the pins. If you remove the watch battery and move the jumper over to the other two pins, replace the battery. Then remove the battery again and place the jumper back in the original location and replace the battery.

This process will reset the CMOS. You must also be sure to unplug the power cord from the tower before starting this process. Be sure the watch battery is not dead or the settings will not hold. So, if you're not sure, replace the watch battery.

If you found this information helpful, please remember to leave positive feedback.

Cmos cleared jumper

jumper is nothing but a wire which shorts two points. if its standard then it is black in color with two holes at bottom and rectangular in shape about 2 cm x 3 cm the closed part would be facing you about 1cm x 2 cm. You can understand its quite small.

My hard drive is failing on an IBM NetVista 8305. Is there a specific hard drive that needs to be put in to replace the failed one, and where would I find that drive? I've run into compatibility issues...

I've had a quick look a a photo of your motherboard and it looks like it supports both SATA and PATA IDE devices.

Have a look inside the tower, if you current HDD is connected via a fairly broad grey ribbon cable, its using a PATA IDE interface - the older fashioned one.

If its connected with a fairly narrow flat red coloured cable, then its a SATA interface.

Remember to set the jumper settings on your new drive to match those on your old one.

DVI output problems with Acer Veriton M464

If you are comfortable with opening the case, you can try this: Unplug the power supply, make sure are constantly grounded (touching metal)remove add-in video card. Locate the "Clear CMOS" jumper (usually 3 pins in a row with two shorted via a plastic jumper). Remove the jumper and short the other 2 pins (if originally pins 1-2 with 3 open, short 2-3 with 1 open) for a few seconds. Then replace on original pins. Plug monitor into motherboard video port and power on. If it works, you can leave as is or try to re-install your video card following the same precautions when opening the case and probably changing BIOS settings to utilize the add-on card.

You will have to locate the 'JBAT1' terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 then back to pins 1-2, to reset bios.
