BIOS Settings by Felix West
I want to write down the BIOS info on my old Compaq just in case I need to manually enter it if it some day forgets it. F10 got me to the right menu but I couldn't view any of the floppy or hard disk information. Highlighting the correct item and hitting "Enter" did nothing. Any ideas? Thanks
