Unfortunately you will not be able to flash that board with an overclockable bios. Any attempt to use a bios not for that board, even an asus one that looks the same, will more then likely kill your board. The best bet is to replace it. Sorry to break the bad news to you, I had hopes of overclocking my old hp as well. Now it's my Mom's, lol.

Well i just payed 800 for this new hp a1010n with a 2.93c D 1024mb ram 180gb hdd etc etc id really hate to swap the mobo, since its a asus is there some of asus app that can be ran from windows to do some oc'ing? or do you know any other software based oc'ing method for this mobo. In the past i went from 2.2 to 2.5ghz on a gateway 310s with cpufsb but i kinda wanted more and more options to play with other than the fsb alone without a mobo swap thanks.

The board has a specialized BIOS for HP and is not compatible with the NON-OEM boards.

This is the problem with buying OEM machines. I would not attempt such a BIOS flash as these boards do NOT contain socketed BIOS chips and if you look at the OEM board and compare it with ASUS's NON-OEM board you will see an empty area on the OEM board where the BIOS chip is on the NON-OEM board. The OEM board has a special non-socketed chip rather than the socketed BIOS of the NON-OEM.

OEM companies such as HP/Compaq etc. require this so that someone can not do what you are wishing to do. This is because before they demanded this move, well people would flash the NON-OEM BIOS's with the OEM boards and screw the boards up from overclocking, reflash back to the OEM BIOS and RMA.

You sure?

I am looking at a pic of the HP board and it looks socketed to me. Doesn't even look like it is glued down or anything either.

Yes, my mistake as this board does have a socketed BIOS. This usually means that they have not strayed from using the stock ASUS BIOS chip and a flash is possible. However, to do a flash you would do well to order another BIOS chip and use it for the flash as if you mess the flash up you will have a non functioning board and getting HP to send you a BIOS chip for this board will not be a simple thing.

Order an ASUS P4GV BIOS chip.

A BIOS Savior would work well also. I have never had regrets with purchasing one
