  1. Don't laugh too hard. This is a 486-33 system whose CMOS backup battery
    has died. Surprise, surprise. Does anyone know how to run Setup? Is a
    Setup program required? For that matter, who ever heard of a Memorex PC?

    It's not mine, just asking for a friend. :)

    Thanks.

    Hi Sam...

    Not exactly certain of the question, but if you're
    looking to get into bios setup, try these:

    DELETE
    ESC
    F1
    F2
    F10
    INSERT
    TAB
    RESET (twice, rapidly)
    CTRL/ALT/+
    CTRL/ALT/?
    CTRL/ALT/ENTER
    CTRL/ALT/ESC
    CTRL/ALT/INSERT
    CTRL/ALT/S
    CTRL/ESC
    CTRL/INS

    Of course you've looked carefully at the first
    screen shown, the key combo may be displayed at the
    bottom left.

    And I too have never heard of a memorex pc, it may well
    be one of those few that required you to boot from a
    floppy and run setup from the floppy.

    Hope this is helpful.

    Take care.

    Ken

    Try Ctrl - Alt - Esc for this machine. Some of these used that sequence.
    There were others that absolutely required the BIOS set-up disk. This must
    be done before the machine starts to access the operating system for boot.

    Sam,
    If you can't find a key combination that works, here is a small generic
    program. SETUP.COM on http://personalpages.tds.net/~rcarlsen/bin Download it,
    put it on a boot floppy and run it. I've used it on 286 and up (not lately ;-)

  5. Thanks. I will try it.

    Hopefully, I can boot using a 720 kB floppy!
