  1. I have tried many combos to try to get into my bios. I have a compaq and it says to press F10 to acess the setup , so i press it, but it just procceeds to the log in window. Sometimes I spam F10 and get something about intilizing, but then again it proceeds to the log in window. What am I doing wrong here, will someone please help! Thanks

    It helps a little bit, haven't tried it yet, but it helps to know I have to tap it, not hold it down thanks!

    Just in case, can you try another keyboard?

    Thanks for the idea, but I tried 2 other keyboards both resulting in the same thing as before. No bios :(

    Is your keyboard connected via the ps/2 port or usb?

    Regards Howard :cool:

    If the keyboard came with an adaptor, plug it in to the ps/2 port instead.

    Otherwise try borrowing or buying an ordinary keyboard, and see how it goes.

    Regards Howard :)
