I have a Compaq Presario 5536 desktop pc. If this board is the original it should have a compaq spare part number on it. Please look for that number and post back with it. Google says it's a 6VTA3 - it's possible there a small sticker on your Bios Flashrom with 6VTA3 + some other ID written onto it...

Well you might be looking at an OEM Packard Bell motherboard. In which case you may experience problems such as you have already. If you were to want to get the non-OEM BIOS file onto the BIOS chip it may render the board useless either way (i.e. new chip or reprogrammed one).

Any chance at finding out the numbers from the other VIA chip?

if you can send me a pic of the board and I will upload it so we can all see what it looks like and we can go from there.

hmmm I would have to take a wild guess here and say that the board is an OEM version of the AL440LX and that you flashed to a non-OEM version of the BIOS.... Any part numbers on the board surface such as a 4000xxx-xxx or 251xxxx-xxx number?????? IF that is the case then that would be a root cause fo...

Looks like your board is the NEC/Packard Bell OEM version of MSI MS-6340, known as the "Halley" (KM133 chipset) or "Florida" (KT133 chipset). The Fresh info looks a bit dodgy. 66MHz ? If you don't know whether it is KT133 or KM133 you need to open the box and look at some numbers on chips; or it ma...
