Presario C300 is a laptop distributed and supported by Hewlett-Packard (HP). The laptop has a 15.4-inch screen and comes with an Intel Core Duo T2060 processor and one GB of memory. BIOS stands for the Input/Output System, which is software that is incorporated into the laptop motherboard chip. BIOS allows you to configure system settings to tweak your Presario C300's performance. However, some changes in BIOS may actually destabilise the system, which can cause random laptop crashes. Fortunately, you can easily use the BIOS menu to reset the default factory settings.
