Any ideas?

My 5 yr old Compaq Presario Tower PC SR1619UK
is F1.

When rebooting press the rquired F key straightaway and continue to press 2 or 3 times per second.

If you get a long beep (buffer full) don't worry about it.
If it starts loading windows, it has not registered/recognised the F key. Try another.

============
My new Compaq Presario Laptop CQ61-320SA shows a red screen for a very short time and says "Press Esc for options" or something.

That then leads to another menu showing BIOS among the options.

Hit Del, I think thats how it's done, the little DEL button, not backspace :)

what kind of keyboard you using ? wireless / usb ? as some of the older units wont go into the bios if you dont use a ps2 keyboard as its not recognised untill windows starts up, im not familiar with your model.. but worth mentioning .
