Access to BIOS setup on OLD HP Vectra ES/12

[ Edited ]
I need to know how to gain access to the BIOS setup program on an old (ancient!) HP Vectra ES/12. The internal battery has gone dead, and I need to tell it about itself again. Any hints will be most appreciated. P.S.Moved from Desktops and Workstations - Archived Desktops and Workstations Boards - general to Business PCs - Evo, Deskpro, Vectra, Kayak, Brio, e-PC

Hi, I have a copy of the BIOS setup program for an old QS machine which may work if you want to give it a try.

Regards ,
Simon.

You can access to the BIOS by booting from a special floppy. I suggest you search the forum because this question has appeared before and the answer has been posted.
