    Back in the day, several years ago, I happened upon someone online that had a modified BIOS for my (old) DFI motherboard, and the difference was astounding. So many features and options had been "locked" by the manufacturer.

    Now I have this HP Pavillion d4990y, given to me as a gift (I would never have paid money for it) and I've managed to upgrade the memory to 8 Gbytes of DDR800, it's RUNNING at DDR800 :yeahyeah:, I'm upgraded it from the Vista 32-bit it shipped with to Win7 64-bit and it's RUNNING :yeahyeah: at 64-bit, and there's a part of me that should be happy I've got it to go this far away from what HP intended, but I still want more.

    More, I tell you. MORE.

    Please Sir, may I have some more?

    So what I'd like to know is if there's anything "more" that can be done. I hate the stupid HP OEM Bios. I'd be happy just to erase any trace of HP from the thing.
