If you can find a used floppy or borrow one to do the flash, it is much easier than the CD route. Heck you should be able to get a 3.5 for less then $10.

Could it the version of BFLASH you have? I have 8.26I and have had no issues on my 1730NX....I have flashed from 3.10 to 3.13 to 3.14 with no issues.

Found it.

baskozz hooked me up with 3.14.

In case you need it PM me. There is a HUGE difference in performance between 3.10/3.13 and 3.14 My performance tripled and my CPU usage went down from 60+ all the time to nearly 0

Its fixed. I finally got ahold of a 3.14 BIOS and everything is Smooooth. So 70Mustang, PM me and i'll send the file(s) you need. You will need to use a floppy (easiest). I used BFLASH and a 314 ROM and all my problems went away CPU usage is nearly 0. There must be something in there that tweaks the...

Agree. I have 2.5 CAS and 2 Gb of Ram and it is reading in the 1000 range when before it was well over 2000. I really think there is something in the BIOS, I just don't know for sure. I may go the UNICORE upgrade route just to see sice the HP techs don't seem to know that a 3.14 even exists. I even ...

Version 3.14 for A8AE-LE

Does anyone have version 3.14 for this Compaq/HP motherboard that I can use? Tech support asked me to load 3.13 to troubleshoot some memory problems (I had 3.14) and now my computer is soooo much slower and my CPU consistantly stays well above 60%-100% even at idle. Also interestingly enough tech su...

What is your CPU usage from task manager when you are idle? Mine stays 50-100% even when I have nothing running.

Similar Problem

I have a Compaq 1830NX which was fine until HP asked me to flash to 3.13. However, I was not on 3.10, I was really on 3.14. Now my system is much slower and CPU Usage never drops below 60% where it would go to nearly 0 before. HP Tech claims there is no 3.14, though I have seen other posts who say t...
