if its a compaq you'll have to press F10, if its HP you'll have to press F1 or F2, well its got to be any one of these: F1, F2, F10, Del, Esc, or you can hold down Ctrl.

if you're not sure which key it is to get into setup, do this:
take a hammer and give the keyboard a good couple wacks, but keep it plugged in. now boot up. it should give you a keyboard error and tell you to hit "X key" to go into setup. ("X key" being the DEL, ESC, F1 or F2 key).

Get your windows start up disk (or make a new one) then go to the dos prompt from there. I think ESC at the menu or something like that. It says on the screen what to hit for a dos prompt.
