Just as a tip as well, when you see the OEM Splash Screen, as will be a black background with capital, red-colored COMPAQ letters in this case, normally if you hit the TAB key - it will flash to an informational screen during P.O.S.T.

At that time, it will more than likely show you the key required to enter setup :)

I could've swore it was F2. I think my laptop is F2, too lazy to reboot to find out.

I would actually love to get rid of that boot logo but there is no option for it. :(

I don't recall, will have another look but I doubt it.

EDIT: Rebooted

It is F2 and no there is no such option :( The BIOS is very limited, no advanced stuff at all.
