...what key does the initial black screen say to hit after starting the computer?
Note: A computer that old may need a new motherboard battery.
Compaq Presario 9546 series 3526C5 Pentium 200 mhz 128 mb ram Windows 98. I have checked the mfgs website and it states F1 for most and F10 for models prior to 2002. All of the components inside this unit are dated 1995. I have tried every combination I can think of from using ths shift key with the above to ESC & Delete keys and many combos of F keys.
Any help would be a great help as the boot order needs to be changed to cdrom for system reinstall due to problems with the OS.
