I cannot access the BIOS Setup screen on my Compaq Desktop SR5410F with Windows Vista.
I installed a PCI Multi I/O card for a parrallel port I need to control another machine. For my machine I need to configure the Parallel port to EPP 1.9. I restarted the machine and pressed F10 to access the Setup screen but the BIOS portion of the screen is all grayed out and will not let me scroll down to it. I have tried all different kinds of other keys to access with no success.
