Default Armada 7350 MT Setup

Hi. I have just aquired a free 7350. It needs some TLC. I would like to know
how to get to the BIOS setup. I have heard references to F10 at logo screen,
but no logo screen appears on this one. The first thing I see at boot is
65XXXX free, then, "Starting Windows98". That's it. F10 doesn't do a thing.
I looked on the HP site for a manual, but the download link seems to be dead.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks.
TA

I think on some older models it may be F1 (wiser minds may have more info).
Try just tapping the key a few times at it boots. Or just go to the web
site and do a model look up, Just did the same for an old Compaq 5441 I
inherited by default. Looked it up as part of the update BIOS process.

Manual he
http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/su.../c01129827.pdf

on page 30:

Fn+Esc BIOS.
Press the hotkey, then the down arrow key to view BIOS dates for the
system, video, keyboard, and expansion
(when docked in a base). (The upgradable system BIOS provides basic
functional instructions to the computer.)

Thanks to those that responded. I got the manual from the above site, and got
the setup program from compaq's ftp site.
The computer is coming back to life. It was loaded up with porn, spyware and
other junk, and would barely run. After deleteing 500mb of this stuff and
defragging the HD, It's like a different machine.
Thanks.

Glad to hear it .
Make sure to scan it with virus app prior to going online again. In case
something buried in registry.
I like spybots,ad-aware, and CCleaner after rebuilding.
Then Avast for free protection ( download.com for all of them)
Good luck with it.

I suggest using the free malwarbytes, and the free version of a-squared,
in addition to the above...

A-squared will find and remove root kits your anti-virus does not know
about...
