Do you have multiple partitions on the HDD or multiple Hard Drives?
Try typing e: and press "Enter" If that doesn't work, try f: and press "Enter".
Let me know about the hard drive configuration and if either of the above commands bring you to the corresponding prompt.

I think we're dealing with either a bad HDD or a bad Motherboard here. Because of the BIOS situation, I'm leaning toward the MoBo.
Download this ROMPaq from Compaq and save it to your desktop. Read the instructions on the download page carefully or print them out. Create the floppy as directed on the website, put it in the broken machine, and power it on.
Don't let Compaq's name for this fool you...it's going to flash the BIOS. If this process won't run successfully, I will just about bet the farm that your Motherboard has bit the dust.
