Default To reset CMOS/ BIOS on a compaq PC

Found this note in old service manual:

If CMOS/BIOS gets hosed (even if can't see screen )
1. Press " Fn + Power On " at same time.
2. Tap Fn+F11 a few times
3. Memory counts up, disk seeks and
generates "Error 162 - Options not set "
4. Press F1 which saves changes and now
BIOS is set back to factory default.
