I have a Compaq Presario 5838 with an AMD Athlon and a Phoenix BIOS.

After a Compaq flash 'upgrade' my hard disk physical throughput went from 9MB to 5MB.

The people at Compaq were absolutely no help, they refused to acknoledge that this was even a problem (on a WD PCI bus master drive that is good for about 13MB).

Has anyone come across a third party BIOS setup utility for this machine? I would like to be able to set my own wait states and such. The stock Compaq setup utility does not allow this.

Any help will be appreciated.


PS I heartily everyone not to but Compaq products. Service after the sell is a bit of a myth.
