Mike,
Del key is the general key to enter most of BIOS, but some BIOS has F2 some F10 and few Esc

You can easily see the button on POST screen, i.e. when you power on your PC just see on screen there may be a message like 'Press Del to enter Setup'

Thanks
Iqbal

Access BIOS


Oh, you can see it in the splash screen. The screen where the 'Compaq' logo shows up has the keys to what goes where. See the bottom of the screen.

See 'Setup' etc. If it doesn't show up (doesn't in mine, as my monitor starts late), then start it up and then reboot. The monitor doesn't switch off here. So, you can see it.

I cannot enable the wireless connection on the compaq Evo n1000c


For the built-in wireless on this model (EVO N1000C) the key combination to enable/disable wireless is Fn + F2. If pressing the Fn and F2 keys together does not enable the wireless, it may be disabled in the BIOS.

If you need to check this, here are the instructions to enter the BIOS:
Turn off the computer. Power it on and immediately start tapping the F10 key about once per second until you see the BIOS screen.

Bios menu


Most Compaq units use the F10 key to enter the BIOS shut off your notebook if it is in hibernation though you may have to shut it down fully by pressing on the stand by power button and pulling at the power notch they should be located at both sides near the hinges of the screen if this does not work remove batteries this will surely bring your notebook to shut down. replace batteries then press power then press the F10 as soon as the Compaq logo comes out. Hope this works some Compaq models nee to be realy shut down before the F10 could be accessed
