Have you tried updating motherboard bios?its not a good idea to buy prebuild system and then upgrade it,manufacturers dont give upgrade freedom mostly so that just sux..

yes I have am having some difficulties due to HP bios lock I concur on the prebuilt being a poor idea but I am poor so it was my best buy for the price range I have managed to clear up most my probs however now I am trying to get to my clock settings, Thank you very much for you're reply :hello:

can you disable onboard graphics in BIOS?
or clearly remove the ATI driver by using Driver Sweeper

I have tried all of that but as I am locked out of most of my bios about all I am capable of doing is to change my boot order The only way to fix the prob is to reflash bios so of coarse ami has collaborated with hp not to allow bios flash for hp computers unless it is a new hp bios thanks for the thoughts but the only way to beat this kind of prob is to get rid of corporate America power to the people
