    If you are referring to the Compaq splash screen, you cannot remove it. It
    is in the BIOS EEPROM and is non-removeable. Dunno about the other.

    Sure, you can use a BIOS from Intel, or any other motherboard mfgr *IF* you
    are willing to risk turning thre PC into an unbootable doorstop. The only
    safe BIOS flash is one from Compaq listed for your specific model.

    It's very doubtful that the DeskPro EN 6400 motherboard was made by Intel.
    AFAIK, Compaq has relied on 3rd party contract electronics manufacturers like
    Mitac to fabricate motherboards and assemble systems. Flashing the motherboard
    with an Intel BIOS, if successfully completed, would very likely turn the board
    into a useless hunk of electronic scrap. The motherboard very likely uses an
    Intel chipset, typical of higher end Compaq DeskPros (compared to the low-end
    consumer grade Presario electro-trash)... Ben Myers

    You should be able to remove the 'system tag string' in F10 setup. The
    splash is permanent.
