on some you can disable the compaq splash screen. have a look in the bios settings. might be called "diagnostic screen". i don't fancy your chances as a lot of those have all the technical stuff hidden to please users.

To enable RAM count you will probably want to get into the BIOS.

Which model Presario have you? Usually the model number is on the front of the case.

I need to know this so I can check the BIOS version and give you a definitive answer.

If you want to look for yourself then in the BIOS you probably need to turn off Fast POST (Power On Self Test)

OK... It looks to me that you have an Asus A7N8X Motherboard.

Go into the BIOS... Press F10 at the red compaq logo.

Advanced TAB and check that POST complete report is enabled.
