Start with the power supply and verify that it working if not replace the power supply with one that is known to be good then if you still have no power check to see if the voltage selector is set to 115 not 220 if this all checks out good than you will need to verify that all the connectors to the motherboard and all drives are secure i have got a lot of dead computers to come alive just by unhooking the power cord to the computer and opering up the tower and 1 by 1 unplugging and replugging in all the wires to the board and harddrive and cd rom and dont forget about the cmos battery and than pressing the power button for 3 seconds than plug in the power cord to the computer and try to restart ok good luck !!!!

Not even by far - that card is an antiquity that can't run even Windows 2000. You need something much better, like

I need to acess the BIOS on my PREsario s4020WM but i need a password to do it is old and was my parents so i cannot figure it out so i jut need the options of what the password would be or how to reset it


Disconnect the power. Remove or reset the jumper near the cmos battery. Connect and turn on your computer for a minute. Turn it off. Reset the jumper to it's original setting and you're done. Put everything back together and you're good to go. Good luck!
