    guys i have a Compaq Presario v3609TU with a Phoenix F.13 BIOS
    when i try to access the BIOS during startup, i can only access disk check and disc scan, no other options. so i supposed that my bios is locked. is there a way to unlock it so that i can access all the options. please help thank you.

    You cannot access the setup by pressing F12 during bootup?

    thanks for replying yen, i could access the bios but there were only two options that i could access, disk scan and check or smth like that. the bios wudnt display any other info like the fan speed or system time or boot sequence or anything so i wanted to know if i can get any help on that in this forum?
    i mean can i get the latest bios for my MB here without the locks?

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    i also have another enquiry, i have a acer 5920g as well. to install xp on my acer, if i change the harddisk mode in bios to IDE from SATA, will i be able to change it back to SATA after i install XP?
    i want to change it to IDE just for installation purpose but want to run it as SATA after installation as its faster than IDE i suppose.
