    Entering BIOS Setup in Armada 1560 laptop

    I have a Compaq Armada 1560DM laptop, and I haven't been able to enter the BIOS/CMOS setup for it. I've tried all the obvious keys, such as F1/F2, Ctrl, etc, and in only shows the amount of memory when it boots up, nothing about holding a key to enter setup. Anyone have any experience with the BIOS on these laptops?
    BTW, I don't really need to get into the setup just yet, but I would like to use it as a thin client, and need to know if it can boot from a network as an option.
    Thanks in advance for the comments.

    It's usually F10, but you may have to install the "ROMPAQ" in order to make any changes.

    Thanks for the help. I updated the firware using that file, yet I still don't seem to be able to enter the setup by pressing F10. It's not important to enter it soon, though.
