Physically it is on the motherboard. The following link it a picture of one, very easy to spot.

If you are talking about how to access the interface of the BIOS then continue reading.

If the computer is "on" then turn it off. Now turn it on and when you see the HP logo, hit the F10 key. If you timed it right, then the BIOS screen will show up, if you missed it...windows will continue to load. If you missed it, reboot and try again.

Hope this helps.

Hello.

Not sure what you mean by "where". The BIOS is a set of instructions on an EPROM chip on your motherboard.

To access it you will need to watch as the computer first begins to boot up. It should say something like:

For Setup Press <???>. It could be one of the F keys or in some computers the <Delete> key.

If you are asking something other than what I have given just use the Comment button and i will try to answer it.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Usually F1 or F2 or F10 and you have to be real quick to hit the f button at start up of the computer.

if you can view your desktop and use the menus, go to start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore, if you had enabled this option earlier then you can restore the system to an earlier known date when you system worked.
else you can try installing winXP again, try the option to "Update" when the install option comes on.
else start PC, before the WinXp screen comes on press F8 key, use the Safe Mode to start PC, if you can see everything then shut down and restart in normal mode.

When I turn on my Compaq Presario 5000, I get a message on the first screen that says 1801-Microcode Error. And something about needing a new bios? Please help me.


The motherboard of the pc has a corrupted BIOS chip - this isn't fixable, you would need to replace the motherboard who died of old age.
Since this is an extremely old pc there are no replacement or compatible boards left on sale. Sorry, time for a new pc.

How do I acces the Bios on a Compaq Presario 5000 built somehere around 2002.


during the bootup post routines you should see a message that tells you what to do to go into the bios.

Sometimes the post routine is run without being shown on the screen. If so, try pushing the F2 button, or DEL key during the bootup sequence.

Good luck!

PC DO NOT BOOT


It seems that you don't have any Operating System installed. You need some bootable OS setup disk, and change BIOS settings to boot you PC from CD. Insert disk and restart PC, then follow onscreen instructions to setup OS.
