    Since my board and the other asus board are so similar, by the physical, layout, and the chips and all, could i flash mine with it's bios?

    I have the same mobo and am very interested in the outcome of any attempts to flash the bios. I also want to run my memory in dual channel? does it have to be pc3200 memory to accomplish this?

    IF your mobo is 800 mhz, get 2x pc3200 sticks of the same brand/type so the Dual Channel works, sell the stuff you have in there. If you flash the BIOS with anything but what HP provides you, you WILL ruin the mobo, period. Although fried mobos make one hell of a paperweight, its usually better to just buy a paperweight at staples and save the mobo for computing.

    I have the same motherboard too!

    But I can't find its driver
    HP's site is a mess, I can find the spec of the board but can't get a link to driver download...

    AUDIO PROBLEMS
    I have audio problems as well. MY onboard audio only works in one channel. I have reinstalled the drivers, played with every sound setting imaginable to no avail. At first I thought I had the slider on the left to right channels not set to the center but apparently the problem is not software based. Hp support wants me to send in the computer for two weeks so they can replace the mobo but I am unwilling to lose my computer for two weeks.

    VIDEO CARD
    The onboard video card works great but i am thinking about replacing it for an AIW card. From what I have heard the only advantage of 128 mb of ram over 64 mb is the higher reolutions you can display. Is there a performance advantage?

    I just got the same M/B today for free. What is the max processor you can put on it? Can you put a Celeron 1.7 on it? I am looking for the most bang for the buck since I don't have alot of $$ to throw at it. What type of memory would you recommend?
    Is it worth keeping and building a system with?
    I currently would like to take advantage of the 8X AGP since I have a GeForce4 Ti 4600 in my current system that is being very supressed with my older MB and processor. I can't complain about the current ole Abit BE-6 it has worked flawlessly so far.
    ASUS P4SD-LA
    2.53 Ghz P4 533 FSB
    512MB 3200 dual DDR
    GeForce 4 Ti4600 128 MB
    Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Platinum
    Western Digital 40 Gig 7200k 2 MB cache
    20" FP2000 ultra sharp LCD

    If you have AGP 4X, you'll see no benefit, as 8X is one of the most overrated things on the market right now.
    Anyway, if the board is an Intel 865 chipset (lol, we havent confirmed that yet ;) ), itll take up to a 3.2Ghz 800mhz FSB, thogh I still think no matter the chipset since its got Dual DDR itll probably take the 3.2c

    Well I was bold and pulled the heat sink off to check it is definately a intel chipset the only legible thing on it was 462. I believe? I would need a magnifying glass to read the small scrawling on it.

    HP website claimed it has the:

    Chipset Name
    Springdale-G, GMCH rev A2

    Chipset 'North Bridge'
    865G, rev A2

    Chipset 'South Bridge'
    ICH5, revA2
    ASUS P4SD-LA
    2.53 Ghz P4 533 FSB
    512MB 3200 dual DDR
    GeForce 4 Ti4600 128 MB
    Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Platinum
    Western Digital 40 Gig 7200k 2 MB cache
    20" FP2000 ultra sharp LCD
