BIOS update HP Pavilion 8480Z


Jul 24, 2002
Does anyone have a BIOS update for the HP Pavilion 8480Z?
I cant seem to access the HP website and i couldn't find it anywhere else.

btw, can anyone else access or is it just me? Cuz its been on and off for me for awile (on for a week, off for a year :/ )

Down with Microsoft, long live Linux, or I HATE WINDOWS, OPEN SOURCE FOREVER!!!!!


Your system uses the Asus P2B-VE motherboard. Go to Asus's site and compare your board to the retail version to make sure it has exactly the same features, if it does try the Asus BIOS. HP often used Pheonix BIOS which is not compatable with Award BIOS flashers from Asus, but you can download a universal flash utility called Uniflash from <A HREF="" target="_new"></A>. Proof that this is your board can be found at <A HREF="" target="_new"></A>

Your board appears to be a weird animal as it has the "P2B" name normally reserved for BX chipset boards, but has the ZX chipset (BIOS between both is compatable because the ZX is the BX with a 512MB memory cap added). You can get the latest P2B Beta BIOS which supports the Celeron 1400 from <A HREF="" target="_new"></A>, but you'll need a Powerleap IP3/T adapter for any Tualatin core CPU's. I can sell you the adapter for $60.
