Compaq Prolinea 575-can't access BIOS

By hwallace ·
Have a Prolinea 575 that will start to boot with checking memory. Will not go any further and I can't access BIOS to check CMOS settings.

Two different problems.

1) won't boot
2) can't get into BIOS

For #2, did you try F8 or F2? Or is it password protected? If so, find the CMOS battery and pull it out, wait for awhile (sometimes a few minutes, sometimes a few hours) or even try flashing the BIOS by crossing the wires.
