Compaq armada 1571. Need to know how to access BIOS to check settings.

This machine ran Windows 95 making it an older Compaq. The following link describes how on older Compaqs bios was entered. On some machines, there was no hot key for entrance and another method was used. But try the F10, i. e. function key F10 at boot.

Can I boot to BIOS without an operating system

Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

this will set the boot order

hope this helps

if this fails you might try some of these

Acer: - Ctrl+Alt+Esc

ALR PC: (F2) or (Ctrl)(Alt)Esc)

AMI BIOS: (Del), (F1) or (F2)

AST, Advantage, Award, Tandon: - Ctrl + Alt + Esc

Award BIOS: (Del) or (Ctrl)(Alt)(Esc)

How do i restore my acer laptop to factory

Select models have the ability to have the operating system reinstalled from a hidden drive built into the netbook. To start the Acer eRecovery:
  1. Tap the Alt and F10 keys togther during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the Acer logo is being displayed).
  2. When prompted with a boot screen, hit the Enter key.
  3. After the Acer eRecovery program has loaded follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
If the ability to reinstall from the previous method is not available or fails during the recovery, recovery of the operating system will need to be from Acer Recovery Media. In order to recover the system using Acer Recovery Media an external optical disc drive is required.
  1. Press F2 to enter BIOS Setup during Power-On Self-Test (POST while the Acer logo is being displayed).
  2. Arrow over to "Boot".
  3. Ensure that the external optical drive is plugged into a USB port.
  4. Refer to on screen instructions to set the first device to "USB CDROM".
  5. Press the CD-ROM drive eject button and insert the System CD.
  6. Close the CD-ROM tray.
  7. Press "F10", then press "Enter" to save the changes and reboot the system.
  8. The netbook will boot from the Acer Recovery Media, follow the prompts to reinstall the operating system.
Please rate!

Operating sysmtem not found. Cannot re-install either. Blue screen saying to disable shadowing and cacheing in BIOS!!! Cannot access F8. Installed new hard drive and the same message.

If you have a new hard drive,it must be formatted and the OS must be reinstalled upon it. You are getting this error because there is no OS on it currently, according to what you are telling us here.

thanks for using
