Question about IBM ThinkCentre S50 8183 - P4 3 GHz (8183D9U) PC Desktop
I cant believe that the bios doesnt start up!?
try mashing F9 or F12 or DEL as soon as youve started it up to see. If the bios aint starting up, its probably a big hardware problem (like you've broken the motherboard or similar)
You sure you've the bios isn't working? Does it POST at all? other wise maybe its just a faulty hdd, try putting the HDD into another computer, wiping it completely and booting.
Most computers wont boot at all if there CPU isn't properly (or isnt) in same for the CPU fan and video adapters. Try reseating everything and see what happens.
Does it beep at all? maybe its a problem with the RAM, have a look at the model numbers of everything and check the the specs match up with whatever motherboard it uses.

Testimonial: "Dear Sir, with F12 I do get to the bios, but it stays that way - no options shown and then flickers with horizontal lines all over the screen. Thnx "
