Forgot password. What F key will get me into Bios

If you forgot the password to the BIOS, then you're likely not going to be able to remove it. If it's just a BIOS password on the hard drive, then you have a chance of being able to reset it. Typically, the HP\Compaq Setup keys are: Esc, F1, or F10. When you first power on the laptop there should be something at the bottom of the screen for a second or 2 that tells you what keys you need to press.

Please, there is a power on password key which appear on my screen and it has cause any key on the keyboard to function and also you cannot enter into the bios setup

This is a BIOS password. To remove it you must open the case and connect the reset pins. Beware, if you touch the wrong pins you can fry the motherboard of the laptop so if you don't have at least a basic knowledge of your laptop it's better to leave this to the repair shop.

Power on password on Compaq NC8000

close to the CMOS battery there will be a BIOS jumper. This jumper usually is colored dif. from all the rest and is labeled commonly (but not always) "J4". The CMOS jumper usually is a 3 pin lead setup and normal operating mode most of the time is with the jumper on pin 1 & 2. If this jumper is on the first and second pin you are going to then move it to the second and third pins and let it sit for about 30 seconds (or place it on pins 1 & 2 if it originally resides on 2 & 3). Once you have done that you will then replace the jumper back as you found it and reconnect all your input/output devices. Power on your computer, boot into BIOS, and use auto detect for your hardware specs. Most of the time you wont have to touch anything setting wise in the BIOS (if its good firmware it detects everything by itself).
