I've tried pressing F2 and F10 (you're right it's F10 for a Compaq). Didn't get into the BIOS.

On the back of the board in the left hand bottom corner is etched:

P/N: 3167000600001-R03 (on the first website below the number ends with R01)
PCB:PWA-BMW MOTHER BD

On the back of the board in the right hand bottom corner is etched:

BTI ML-1
94V-0 (a zero)
0044
ET1 (stamped on with rubber stamp upside down)
E198991

On the front of the board in-between the processor and the memory is a white label with bar code on the bottom. Above the bar code is written:

433AEJ00(two zeros)199i

to the right of the above label is another white label:

Product of China
0128 43(DS)

Right next to what I assume is the CMOS chip and the CMOS battery is a white label:

0203 (both zeros)

I searched and searched all over the internet prior to this. I tried all the numbers on the board, got nothing. There's a little sticker on the bottom of the case. It says "Compaq Agency Series CM0902". I searched for that and came up with two useless websites. Then I tried a number on a separate label off the bottom of the case:

174971-005

I made copies of the two motherboards that I found on eBay with that number. I put them on my website and you can link to them below:

Hope this helps

Your never going to believe this. While I was just looking at the board, I noticed that the CMOS jumper was set on reset. I've been trying to clear it backwards. I set it up the way it's supposed to be and it booted right up. Just the same you taught me some important things about how to check a motherboard. I was always wondering what those beeps meant. You showed me that they give out some pretty important information. And I didn't think to disconnect the drives. That information should come in handy if I ever have to troubleshoot a motherboard again. Thanks for all your help.
