EDIT i had a look on the HP website and after reading all the online manuals, i found nothing on the bios, then i went to the 'how to' section and found my way through to the bios setup, if your pc is the one in your specs, SR5060AN, all it has is the main screen, advanced (nothing useful) and power options. if i were you, the next step is to upgrade to anything apart from a HP motherboard. I personally like EVGA motherboards, Asus are good but expensive for that brand name. the reason i say this is you cannot control anything but shared graphics with that HP board.
It's some Pheonix Technologies or something, I'm fine for now, I can run Bf2 and some other powerful games, I'll get a couple of books on computers and probably in 6 to 12 months I'll look into building a decent PC.
Pheonix Tech is just the maker of the BIOS chip. they have been the I.T. industry standard for decades.

Like Torrentg posted before, there maybe a bios 'hack' for that mobo, but the risk of doing things like that can cause the mobo to become 'bricked' (unusable to the point when you will turn it on and it wont beep or anything) and the only way around that that i know of is to get a replacement BIOS chip (thats if its on a removable socket), so like Torrentg said, it is risky, but if it was me in your position, i like to tinker and would try and find it. you just have to be 100% sure its made for your mobo and it actually works.

good thinking Torrentg! just like the firmware hacks for modems and routers. i just never thought they would make them for mobo bios's, and after all, why not, a company that restricts you from taking full advantage of your own hardware should be a crime!.
I think i'll be alright for now, when I do learn more about computers and have a decent amount of money to save up then, I'll shop around for components and add them to a wishlist type thing, then I'll mess around with the motherboard and from there I'll see what upgrades, if any I could do the the HP machine, and if it stuffs up then I can go a month on the laptop.

you can alter the HP machine, its just once you change the mobo to something else, all thats HP is the box.lol. i know what you mean by a wish list. mine has an i7 on it.lol. i just ordered some upgrades (cooling parts) as its been a while since i done something with it.

no that is a test of the memory transfer bandwidth of your ram, it is testing how fast it can transfer/read at in megabytes per second. 1600mhz is the frequency speed of the chips on the ram. when you go into the BIOS does it say your ram is running at 1600mhz? or have you got CPU-Z? that will tell you the speed your system is running at.

and that picture you posted is a good speed!

your ram is actually running at 1066mhz, its 533x2 (double data rate). so you will have to manually set it in the bios, make sure your voltage is set at the proper setting that OCZ state first, then adjust the ram to 1600mhz. let me know how you get on.

EDIT: IF your ram has major issues running at 1600mhz, then consider taking a look at this forum thread i just found through googling your ram model number. NOTE that an RMA is always the last resort, but hopefully not for you

http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...ad.php?t=52572

OH and when you adjust the ram speed to 1600mhz, make sure you set all the timings onto AUTO first, that way it has the best chance of booting at 1600mhz.

your ram volt should be at 1.65v

this is the specs on them

quick question you sure its not by 3??? since its tripple channel?

well i got it thank you. If i never posted i would of never found out my ish was running low, always thought it was x3.

I also updated my bios cause it said improved memory capability.

and improved my score
