It should say on the screen when you 1st boot up - something like "press ?? to enter setup"

If all you see is the compaq splashscreen you can press esc to see the first boot screen. May need to hit pause/break to halt the boot process long enough to read what riider has mentioned.

Compaq is F10. If that doesn't open bios setup then either you're not hitting the key at the right time or you're using a USB keyboard with legacy support not enabled. In that case use a PS/2 keyboard.

Or you've got a really old compaq before they started using ROM based setup and the F10 software isn't installed on the hard drive.
