    Is this only for SLIC mods? Cause I was wondering if there is an unlocked bios for Compaq V2575CA laptop. Something with OC options. It would be nice to OC my ML-34 to it's max stable state, but leave the underclocking energy saver on. This laptop is about 4-5yrs old, but still decent. So I was hoping that there was some sort of hacked or generic bios that isn't locked down available for D/L.

    The last bios revision: Version F.27
    The motherboard info is:

    I don't think anyone has taken Bios Hacking that far.

    Requiers far to much work, less time consuming to do OCing on the OS Level.

    Try SetFSB.

    Some can be unlocked. The problem is that a lot of the proprietary OEM (DELL, HP, Etc.) use their own bios and the options are simply not there to unlock. If they are hidden, then they can be unlocked most times, if they are not there it becomes a very difficult operation.

    I think another resource is the new rebels haven..http://www.rebelshavenforum.com/sis-bin/ultimatebb.cgi

    They do a lot of customizations beyond my comprehension..

    Again, the chance that there are locked features in the HP board is small..they generally just remove them..:cool::cool:

    Damn, I was hoping there was something developed for these older laptops by now. :(

    Ok, I'll ask there. :) Thanks for the info! :D

    you can try by finding out what kind of board is in you laptop and getting a bios file direcly from the manufacturer... but thats a huge risk considering the fact the you might brick your mobo if a wrong bios file is installed....
