Does the system not work with the existing bios?

Generally considered wise(r) to leave bios updates alone - unless absolutely essential; and you know the update is sound?

Which having said... if you use:

phoenixBIOS 4.0 release 6.0.D

as the string/search term in duckduckgo or google etc.

you'll get several hits indicating a later version; one from Dell and several other sources as well.

No idea of the current reliability of any of those listed; but at least you can browse and see what?

✔ Best Answer
What do you hope to gain by updating the BIOS? PhoenixBIOS 4.0 release 6.0.D is generic. You need the BIOS version from HP/Compaq that's based on PhoenixBIOS 4.0.

The board part number is 304285-001.

Try searching for Compaq Presario 4504 ROMPaq. SP6360.exe is what you're looking for.
