Im a young one im 15 and sorta kinda new to all this and im having no luck. I took my buds computer to fdisk it and put 982nd edition on there... I had to put it in a whole different machine to put it on but once it was on it started up just fine... the new problem is this when i put it back in his machine it said I/O error so I have been trying to get into BIOS ... this compaq motherboard is pretty old i must say... takes only simm chips no dimm and had one of though huge floppy drives... i guess what im asking for is if anyone can help me find a diagram showing how i can reset the BIOS on this old motherboard i cant find the jumpers and the battery is sauderd in. the number on the board is 003516-001 it also said diagram no. 003423... I would greatly appreciate ANY help.
thanks a lot
