Pressing the <Delete> key should be the way into the BIOS. FYI that is the basic way of getting into any computers BIOS. Anyway if that doesn't work check out HP's website and look in the FAQ's.

Try using the F2 or the F10 key. This requires timing...this must be done once you see your computer's brand name Splash screen but before it disappears.
