How do I get into BIOS on a Compaq Deskpro?

  THE TERMINATOR 22:33 12 May 05

There is no message at start up and I have tried all sorts. Can anyone help? tia

There is a white screen that says Compaq, and it has a little egg timer in the bottom left.

If I recall correctly, during boot-up you should see a flashing cursor bar in the top right of the screen. When this is in place, hit F10 and you should get into the BIOS screen.

Compaq usually use the F2 key. so as soon as you see the POST screen (White on Black) tap F2 once every second and it should appear. The alternative is F11 but I bow to superior knowledge if it is now F10!!

I'm sure Longhouse is correct in the use of F10 - at least it was on my old Deskpro 350 a few moons ago

Well it's not the F10 key, that doesn't work well not for me. I'll try F2 & F11
