Look for it...

When you turn on your system, it will begin a POST sequence. The first screen image will contain information on how to enter the BIOS Setup. You can freeze the Post process by pressing the "Pause" key. Press the correct key and you will see your BIOS. There will be instructions on how to use key strokes to move within the BIOS.

Proceed carefully.

Hijack

I think we have officially hijacked this thread :P. The original poster solved his issue. We may wanna create a new thread instead of cluttering this one up.

Compaq fan on C700

You are working on the wrong problem. Make the holes on back of the case at the fan bigger. It is not letting enough air in. My computer keep turning off during defrag and virus check. Now the fans very seldom go any higher than low.
