There is usually a key like TAB that you can press just as that screen appears to close it and return to the post screen. Most of the time it can be disabled from the BIOS too. Perhaps that will let you see where it is hanging.

Most Compaqs do not allow you to turn that splash screen. Ive yet to see one that does let you turn it off. Post is the Computers Power On Self Test.

The bios key should be F10
