Does anyone know the key or key sequence to get into the setup screen for display, HD type, date etc.. for the magnavox professional 486sx desktop PC. I've tried the old reliables delete-insert-F1 etc... my children got it up long enough to change the display mode, I can't seem to find the right key,key's to set it back any help would be appreciated.

Try to turn off the computer and then hold down a hand full of keys when you turn it back on this will most of the time give you a keyboard error and give the chance to enter the setup screen and possiblly give you the key code to enter setup.
