Just what is it that you want to do?

But, it doesn't really make a difference who made the motherboard as it is a cusom build to Compaq's specs and more than likely ONLY a Compaq bios upgrade will work.

I worked for Dell and we went through the same thing. Some of the early Demension boards were pure Intel and you could update them with Intel bios but it was usually one way.
