Hi can you tell me how to enter into BIOS.
The PC is an old COMPQ Prolinea 575e.
I was interested to see what MHz it is.
I have just loaded Windows 3.0,
The PC has 16MB Ram which I will upgrade the price is still on it £108 including VAT.
What is a recomended amount for Win3.0

Wasn't the bios loaded into a hidden partition on the HD on these machines? Not sure if it would make a difference as to how you access it mind.

When the computer starts to boot up, there is a point where a small white box blinks in the upper right hand corner. Hit F10 when you see the box.

and if it is standard it will be a Pentium 1 75Mhz

Tried all above but it faults the the keyboard.
No matter I was just interested.
I reckon it must be close to 75MHz as bremner says, seems to run ok what ever it is.

Thanks for help.
