    BIOS killing me

    I have an old compaq presario 4508

    After 2 years of installing and uninstalling thing to the box i'm getting problems booting.
    some times it just showes the compaq logo and sotps there but when ever i get a chance to push escape key on boot it send me to the bios and alows me to pick which Drive to boot from.

    what would you recomand besides trashing it!!#$!

    I could be wrong, but I thought Ctrl+F2 (or F1) was the bios setup button??
