Compaq Presario 1275 notebook.

How can I get into the CMOS setup after I turn the computer on? On some other computers that I have used I pressed the "Del" key on start-up.

Turning off computer

I have a Compaq 1275 with the same problem. You can actually turn it off without removing the battery by holding the on/off button for more than 4 seconds. This actually works for any computers (it is like a reset button). Hope it helps.
