Hi all,
I had a compaq evo d500 given to me and for some reason I can't enter the bios.I see where it says press F10 to enter setup when i first boot,but that does nothing and the computer just boots into win XP.I have tried F1 F10 and the Esc key on my keyboard with no luck.
Can someone please help
Thanks
Dave

Known issue with some Compaq laptops. I've had that very same issue with my Armada 110 and solved it by connecting an external keyboard, turned it on, hit F10 at POST, save&exit, shutdown, disconnect the external keyboard, and voilĂ ... It fixed the problem. :P
