I bought a pc made by hewlwee-packard and compaq and need the manual for the mainboard as the bios is with password and i want to clear cmos and change a new cpu. solutions to email@example.com, please.
Across from the PCI slots, lower right corner, there is a GREEN jumper. Power off, remove this jumper, power on. The system will not request a power on passowrd. Power off the system, replace the jumper, power on, the system will not request a power on password.
I have a HP mod d530-c When I first got it it booted right up to the desktop. I messed with the cmos and went to the factory defaults . Now when I boot before it gets to the desktop it asks for F1 to complete the boot . Help how can I get it to boot up without it stopping and asking for F1.
Still runnung WinXP

Re: hp d530c mainboard
Open the case, on the motherboard close to the bottm of the case you will see a little blue cap and a yellow button with your computer powered off bu still plugged in, remove the little blue thing , and then press the yellow button. This will erase the Password for the BIOS as well as Clear out all opf the CNOS Memory when You start up the computer.

Step 1: All computer BIOS chips have a backdoor master password designed to be used in the event that you can't remember the password you set yourself or by a tech support agent who is fixing your machine. These passwords are set at the factory level and do not change, no matter what model of computer you own. You will use this password to bypass the currently set password in the event that you need to access your HP BIOS but cannot.
Turn on your HP computer. Strike the "F2" keyboard key. Your HP computer will attempt to load your BIOS. You will be prompted to enter your current password. Type "merlin" into the password prompt and hit "Enter." This is the backdoor BIOS password for HP brand computers. You will now bypass the user defined password and the BIOS screen will load as normal. How to Reset a BIOS Password http://www.tech-faq.com/reset-bios-password.html
Hi richo64 It seems your motherboard is not equiped with Sata plots : http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11632_na/11632_na.HTML. If this is the case , you need to purchase a PCI Sata controller card with at least one internal Sata plot . Disconnect power plug and make sure you are not static electrically loaded . Open tower by removing side panel . Install PCI card on an available PCI plot inside your tower . You will also need to acquire a Molex/Sata converting power cable and a Sata interface cable . Once done , install your Sata drive in an available place in your desktop and connect the cables . Start your pc . If you have kept the old Pata drive in operation , immediatelly and repeatedly hit a F key ( often Fi or F3 or F8 , it depends on the machine ) to acces bios , select the Sata drive and fix the boot priorities . Sata controller cards and cables are easy to find by googleling on the net or in any computer shop . Best regards , fanaudi .
If the battery is good for sure and you tried a different battery just to be sure then you might want to try updating the BIOS. Go into the BIOS and see the version that is in there.
Then go here:
Type in your model number and then get to the download page and see what version is on the website. If the version of the BIOS on the website is newer then on your machine then download and install that one.
If you update the BIOS and it still can't keep the settings then you know at that point the motherboard is bad.
you may check and see if it's set to the "internet time" -> "automatically syncronize with an internet time server", if there you have a wrong server, then it'll reset your time wrong, or if you have another timezone set in windows, than it'll update to that timezone.
secondly, if it's a hardware related issue, than it can be the battery
