BIOS Flash

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
does anyone know if it is possible to flash the BIOS on a HP or Dell computer that has the cpu die locked to get OCing options in the BIOS. I know that you can OC a locked CPU with programs, althoough it blows, so i thought it might be possible.

I *did* succesfully manage to flash the BIOS of a Sony. I was able to figure out the brand/model of the MoBo (SiSandra), and get the BIOS for that board.

Remember that this kind of flash might NOT work, since the motherboard you have might be manufactored according to HP/Dell/Sony spec. Before attempting any kind of venture like this, make a backup of the existing BIOS and make sure that you know how to re-flash it (even in the case of a complete failure to post).
