I had to replace the mobo in my ze4547wm, I got a board from a
Compaq 2100, same part number, and it works fine. The only problem is when the laptop boots up I get the old Compaq logo at the start. I've already flashed the bios with the latest from the HP site, but I still get the Compaq Logo. I'm very familiar with flashing with Awdfash and using command lines with a floppy drive, but laptops are a new area, and the pheonix flash in windows is all automatic, and the laptop dosen't have a floppy drive. Can the logo be changed ??? Any help would be great. Thanks.

You would need to somehow get the entire BIOS erased and start fresh with the new HP version. Exactly how to do this and how dangerous it is I don't know for sure.
