I also have a problem on my computer. I'm not sure if the mobo is dead or if I have a damaged video card. I suspect that it is the video card that has a damage. I'm not familiar with motherboard jumper. But I'd like to try it. Can you give me specific details about motherboard jumper. Is it inside the mobo? what does it look like?

near or around the battery on the mobo i believe there should be 3 metal prongs sticking up out of the mobo. There should also be a piece of what looks like plastic connector, connecting two of the prongs. If you take that connector and move it to the other two, leave it there for a second, then move it back, your BIOS will have been reset.

I tried it but it did not work. This is my problem my pc is not loading windows xp. After the image loading windows xp(not sure of the exact words). The screen is splashing a blue screen and then it resets. Before I cannot see anything on the monitor it doesn't open up. But I bought a surplus(second hand) 8mb video card(I think it's an agp because the slot is color brown) and can now see images and text. Do you think 8mb of video card isn't enought to run windows xp? I also have tried to reinstall windows xp but the cpu just resets.
