✔ Best Answer
You're sure it's a problem with the bios and not the video controller or monitor?

Go to the support page for your model and download the latest rampaq--a rompaq is what compaq calls a bios upgrade--and follow instructions. Likely if your computer has a floppy drive you will put the upgrade files on a bootable floppy disk.

PS. Put more ram in that thing.

That thing is an antique. It definitely needs more RAM & can handle up to 3GB (3 x 1GB) but good luck finding that in PC133. Also, the message you posted seems to indicate the system is attempting to boot from a network, so that mean there's probably a problem with the hard drive.
