    How do you access the Bios on a Compac Presario 4110. I keep getting the message 162 Sytems Options not set. 163 Time and Date not set. Having visited Compac they were not a lot of help. Downloading the software recommeded by them was a waste of time, still got the above message. Tried all the usual keystrokes etc no good. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Not sure but I guess you need to hit the F2 key as the system starts to enter the BIOS in the Compaq systems.(If F2 doesnt work check with F10)

    Hope this helps...:)

    Reboot your system and when the red Compaq logo shows up start pressing your F8 key repeatedly. That should bring you into the bios

    Like pvc9 said, try f10. I have a COMPAQ PRESARIO 7594, and f10 works for me.

    It's either F8 or F10, just keep hiting the key repeatedly when the red Compaq logo appears.

    F 8 will get you the menu for safe mode, command prompt, etc. F 10 will get you into the Compaq bios setup.
