Re: bios in compaq 7400

I do not understand your message - do not abbreviate so much.
BIOS has nothing to do with being in XP.
Are you ASKING us or telling us that it won't work with XP ?

If you are trying to UPDATE the bios , follow online info. You need to
create a floppy then boot from it.
HOWEVER - if PC is currently running XP, did you fdisk/format the
current drive ? Overwriting the factory info ?
Did F10 work prior to " virus " ? Did you ever try it ?

Power on the PC.  Do you see a big Q (or COMPAQ logo) in the first few
seconds after power on ?
Press F10 during that time -  THAT gets you into BIOS on a "good disk".
If you don't see the logo , do you see "Press F10" message ?

In case you are asking, Compaq link shows
SUPPORTED OPERATING SYSTEMS: Microsoft Windows 95, Microsoft Windows 98,
Microsoft Windows NT Workstation 3.5, Microsoft Windows NT Workstation
4.0, Microsoft Windows 2000

If you are familiar with the hardware, how about hooking up the disk to
another system and running virus scan/repair from there ?

If you need more help, please re-enter question.
