I'm trying to increase my processor speed, but I don't know what keys to press to unlock the rest of the BIOS settings.
I have Compaq Presario C700.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

It is next to impossible to overclock a retail computer such as a Compaq
There are no options in the BIOS for you to change

The only option is to find a modified BIOS and flash your current motherboard. Of course that will void any warranty (assuming there is one). Otherwise there are no overclocking options.

If I had your computer I would leave it alone. If you could get the bios to do it. When clocking a computer the next step is to get better cooling. Over clocking creates more heat.
