Hi group.\n\nI'm concidering flashing 'up' the BIOS in my Presario 5030 using a non-\ncompaq one. (YES, I know this is no-no, and immoral etc) But I imagine this\nwill give me greater control over the PC. However, as you can imagine, I\nwonder what motherboard this model has.\nWhat I know: It has an intel 440ex chipset and from what I can tell, an\nAmerican Megatrends BIOS chip (I'll get the part number if it's relevant).\nIt has a PentiumII 300, and two DIMM's. It has two PCI and two ISA slots.\nOnboard ATI rage LT pro 2xAGP, onboard ESS 1869(f) sound.\n\nI have read that another 'Presario' had some Gigabyte board, but I can't\nfind one that resembles this one here. What should I look for? I'm kindof a\nnewbie when it comes to hardware, any help appreciated.\n\nTIA.
