If you're talking about the motherboard BIOS just remove the memory backup battery on the board for an hour and replace it.
There should be a jumper on the mobo for resetting the bios, but if you cannot find that just remove the battery.

This machine will not run Vista, so stick with XP. Possible performance upgrade would be memory to 512Mb, but it will be hard to find the proper modules. Upgrading the video card will not do much good on this kind of machine. We still have a few of these machines around for normal office use and they perform just fine in that role, but remember that these machines have been around for a long time and both technically and economically they are redundant.

Probably your power supply. They are pretty cheap to replace. If it's plugged into a power bar then try plugging it directly into a wall socket just to make sure it isn't your power supply.

Sounds like the video card has quit. It may also have onboard video. I would try a new video card or try onboard video (if equipped). Good Luck

I would buy a cheap usb card to fit into a pci slot on the old computer.
Otherwise you would need a serial cable (if your laptop has a serial port) if not it would be a serial to usb plus the software to transfer, i would say far too much trouble.
A usb card is a couple £/$

Look at the back of the computer. One side panel removes. (Access Panel) There are two Thumbscrews to loosen on the Access Panel, then the panel is lifted off, or brought straight out.

I need 2 reset the settings on a compaq deskpro en. so i can use a new hard drive that has windows xp pro sp1 & sp2 that i had install. it will not show on my screen. please help with this!.


the problem with using a hard drive that has a preexisting installation of windows is that you may run into architecture problems (different CPUs can cause this), or hard drive controller problems. Your best bet is to install XP again from the install disk, and call windows; from my experience they have just given me a new installation key.
