I have traxxas slash 2 wheel drive with a traxxas XL5 ESC EZ SET Receiver.wich transmitter would be compatible with this receiver?

Personally I would just go on Ebay and buy a transmitter and receiver setup. Will likely be as cheap as trying to buy one part plus if your current setup is the older crystal type you can upgrade to a 2.4ghz setup and then you have no worries about interference and the antennae are much shorter or internal.

How to change setting in bios to boot from cd drive"?"

you usually dont have to change the boot order to boot from a cd. the bios should check the cd rom before booting from the hdd. However, if that isnt the case, you can always change the boot order.

go to the bios settings while u turn your laptop on. (It should be "esc" for HP. a message will be displayed at the bottom of the screen indicating the key. if not, try esc, f10, f11, f12. either one of them should work).

go to the boot order settings (May have a different name- boot settings/ boot priority settings/ advance boot options etc.).

My compaq presario cq 61 will not come on although the three little indicator lights come but nothing else i have tried removing battery and replacing whilst also pressing the on button for 30 seconds...

try turning system completely off, turn back on and immediately and continuously push the esc button it should take you to the bios settings. you might also want to try changing out the cmos battery i have seen this happen with a hp dv2210. if you get to the bios settings look at the bottom of the screen where it has different selections choose default settings. let me know how it goes.

The first thing to check is whether or not your speed controller is in Lipo mode or NiMH. If you are using NiMH, and the ESC is set for Lipo, it will not work properly. If the ESC is in NiMH mode, then try reprogramming the speed controller, as this has been my problem a couple of times. Good luck, and have fun. Hope this helps.

Unable to get to CMOS using any of the 3 methods

This machine is one of the first "legacy free" models which means there are no BIOS options to change. All settings and resources must be assigned by the OS.
For details, please check the "legacy free" FAQ on MS Knowledge base.
If you are trying to access the BIOS to change boot order so that you can boot from a CD, hold down the 'c' key during POST/boot. This will case your laptop to boot from CD-ROM.
