Compaq Presario X1000 (DK454AV) BIOS corrupted ? no boot

I went to change the boot sequence to boot from my integrated DVD so I could reload my OS. After making the change I attempted to save the BIOS settings but the system locked up during the process. Now no boot, no screen, no effect when trying to get back into the BIOS. How do I (can I) clear the BIOS?

At the top of the forum.

Is a sticky with a "generic" reset. Try that.

What sticky?

I find three (3) stickies at the top of the laptop troubleshooting forum page, none address this topic. Please provide a link.

You're right.

None address YOUR TOPIC.

There is a generic reset noted and I suggest you try that.
