The cmos settings can be changed when the machine first starts up. Look on the screen that says something like press <key> to enter Setup, Cmos,or Bios and then press that key, That is where you can change those settings.
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.
