I have a Compaq 500B mini tower desktop PC with 2GB or RAM and E5300 CPU. it's motherboard says : H-IG41-uATX, REV:1.0, which I think is a product of Foxconn, which they have no information of. I seem to hit a dead end. I've looked for the HP products which might have the same mobo without any luck.
So; is there a way to fix this issue? If a bios update can really fix it; can any one point out the bios update file to download?
BIOS Revision : 5.05 09/25/09
Core version : 08.00.15
If it's possible to dump bios(not sure if hp/foxconn allow this); some one with the same bios could be of help as well.

it could be a power-problem
(HP office desktops have 180W PSU; tower maybe 300W)
From the AMIBIOS manual
