Need to find a bios for a board...
    #2293949 - 02/02/04 12:47 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

and i can't find it thru all the net bullshit. I'm trying to flash a compaq into working order....board is a camaro pwa-pwa, from a presario 3340.
Processer is probably nothing special, mebbe 800 mHz at most. Any help would be appreciated.

What does "flash a compaq" mean?

copying down the string ID at bootup will be helpful.. You first need to enable a full boot up in the bios to do this,, with a compaq in order to get past the comcrap screen. Have you ever flashed a bios before?? PM me... we'll get you situated.. NFum...

you need to get a flash program from compaq's webpage (http://h18000.www1.hp.com/) and then locate your motherboard type and dl the latest bios. Then read the instructions and flash away.


Edit: Trust me, the flash program is in the webpage somewhere, it took me afew day's to find it. I lost it last format, otherwise I would give it to you. they have a poorly put together webpage, but the info is there.
