I believe that you want one of these three part numbers. I do NOT know the difference between these parts, but it's probably just revisions, but that's a pure guess on my part!

199354-001
199354-002
199354-003

HP does NOT have that part for sale! Best bet is to search on eBay and see what comes up or try the Google Products section.

Take a look at the images in this eBay listing and see if this is what you want:

P.S. Your BMW-2 motherboard is known as a "Tonka" motherboard, don't laugh it's not a joke.

Through some "hoop jumping" I found the motherboard for your Compaq Presario 5000US. It does NOT have a BMW2 motherboard! How sure are you that this is a BMW2 motherboard?

Reason I ask is that if I find a manual for either. It might lead you down the wrong path in configuring the connections. So tell me how sure you are that this is a BMW2 motherboard, please!

Bill

I've found that the motherboard for your Compaq Presario 5000US is a FIC AZ31 motherboard. Take that with a grain of salt, please!

Ok, why are you looking for an updated BIOS for this motherboard, i.e. what feature is not there that a BIOS update would hopefully fix, i.e. larger hard driver support, more cpu's supported, etc., etc?
