I just received a Compaq Armada 7350MT which was surplussed from our Internal Audit dept. As a security precaution, they wiped out all of the partitions before returning the machine to us. Now, I can not get into the BIOS, and can not get the machine to boot off of a floppy, CD, etc. I have read that some older Compaq laptops such as this one store all/some of their BIOS info on the hard drive. But, that does not make much sense considering that in order to detect a HDD you would have to use the BIOS info that is stored on the HDD itself. I have tried everything I can think of in order to get into BIOS, but nothing works. Can anyone give me any insight on what seems to be the problem?
