I have a Compaq 386s / 20 to which I have changed the dallas chip, since I was exhausted and I need to enter the bios, to configure the hard drive.
I have tried two paths:
1. Diagnostic disk (network)
The file that you can find on the network as a diagnostic diskette for compaq is an executable called "SP0308". If you execute it, extract two files: QRST.EXE and DIAGS80B.:_01
Once in msdos, if you execute the QRST, a blue menu appears that says that it will create a diskette (imagine that of diagnostic) and begins to format it. When I finish formatting, I get a red dialog box, telling me that there is an error.
2. Diagnostic disk (Compaq Dos 3.31)
DOS version 3.31 of compaq and diskette 4, contains some diagnostic files (TEST, SETUP, ..) The problem that I had, once I started with this diskette, is that it tells me that I need a more modern version and only I get the TEST to work, but not the SETUP.
Apart, all attempts to enter the bios when starting the PC, pressing keys like F10, F2, DELETE, etc ... They do not work.
Can anybody help me?
