I have Dell Rev A02 motherboard. Was working before. Wanted to upgrade the RAM, I had to check the type first. After checking , I put back the memory stick and power up. The fan was working, the board led was on and the CD Drive could open and close, the screen was no longer coming up. There is only one jumper with three pins. I removed and interchangedry the jumper on the pin. The screen came up and boot to set up.after clicking F10, it asked me to shut down and then put the jumper back to its original place. Since then the screen has not been coming up. I testd the CPU and the memory stuck in another motherboard, they were working. Kindly help

download driver identifier from the following website http://driveridentifier.com/ and run it. It will automatically update all your drivers if not it will show id of your driver just copy and paste in google you can find your driver...
if your computer came with a motherboard disc the sound drivers could be on it click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll to sound,video and game controllers you might see a yellow question exclamation mark? ! or a red X Right click to reinstall drivers
if you don't have a motherboard disk or a disk with the drivers you will need to download them
The power source (PSU) of the pc has failed (more precisely the 12 volts line), replace it. You can buy a cheap one at every pc shop, just make sure you get one with the same power or better, above 450 watts.
in a PC TOWER, you can unplug the power supply from the motherboard and remove the little battery and it will reset it.
in dell laptops there is no battery or at least not one you will
have access too, usually at the back of a dell laptop there are 2
pieces you can open, Open them with a screwdriver.
unplug from power, remove the battery.
Now, there should be a skinny cable running from a place you cant
access, the end of this cable have a white plastic thing on it and it
connects to the mother board.
Unplug it from the motherboard, wait 5 seconds, plug it back in.
your bios should be reset now.

Your computer has memory problems.
First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If
not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check
your SIMM's. Re-seat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory
chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks
memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its
first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see
which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need
to buy another motherboard.
if the sci36-r13 is the stock mobo that came with that pc it isnt worth upgrading pentium 4's use the LGA-775 socket this is compatible with all pentiums and core 2's (not includeing core i7), so you could put in a core 2 quad if you wanted to but it would not make much difference to performance because your motherboard would not be able to handle some of the fetures your ram would also reduce preformance
if you wanted to upgrade that computer you would have to replace everything but maybe the case
