Well, overclocking and Compaq are oxymorons, but you can get into the BIOS by going F10 on startup on some Compaq's. That's how my P200 Compaq is.

Hey thanks but I tried that it seems they have it locked out and cant change the important stuff you know that bites. it is the same with my aptiva but that is why I am building a custome system so if I want to blow it up I can :))

some of the compaqs required a "admin" boot disk to access the bios. only then would it come up

yeah, some old IBM systems also made to have a boot like disk to access the bios.
