I have an old no-name computer that has amibios 2.5/  And runs win2003 server.  It serves one function only and I dont want to mess with it too much.  When the power goes out in the house where it is at it wont autodstart. I thought I could set the bios but cant see an option to have it auto start.  I looked at the upgrading the BIOS in the hope that may fix it but I am concerned the process to upgrade looks too complictaed.

I would like some advise on how to have the computer auto restart on power failure.  

Thanks.

If there is no such option within the BIOS, you won't be able to get it to autostart after a power outage.

and if they do not say that the BIOS upgrade fixes the autostart, i would not upgrade it.
