Hello , I just upgraded my hard drive ( samsung spinpoint 120G 5400 rpm 4mgs cache ) to a ( WD 500g 7200rpm 16 mgs of cache ) , Now , when I boot up ,I get , ( 2 ) splash screens , ( american megatrends ) and ( hp invent ) Now it even takes longer to boot up ,before I upgraded my machine ....:haha:
How do I remove these splash screens ? I went to my bios , boot to disable , But to no avail , they keep opening .

Upgraded HP a250n

3.2 intel northwood
2.ghz RAM

don't think you'll be able to, you'd need to rewrite your bios (or find a hacked one) and/or motherboard's ROM.

is it that big of a deal?

I fixed my ( The steam servers are too busy ,problem ) Left 4 dead 2 is now downloaded and working , I Booted up my original hard drive and saved all my games too my external drive ( AGAIN ) and renamed it , removed my old drive and then ,I installed my new drive . and booted up steam ( I had too upload all my games again ).. Hey , All my games work now .( no more , The steam servers are curently too busy ) ...I,m a happy camper . Oh guess what ? I even got rid of a stuck pixel ( Blue ) stuck pixel , I wrapped a micro cloth around my index finger ( Right handed ) and poked at the screen where the stuck pixel was , with hard enough force ,but not too hard , I tried poking the stuck pixel lightly and then a little harder (Nothing Happend) So ,I got a little pissed off and just poked the screen where the stuck pixel was with Micro fibre cloth wrapped around my finger ,I was so tired of looking at that stuck pixel , My eyes went directly at tha f*&^%$# thing and your pixel problem will be resolved . ( Well , I did that and my pixel problem was resolved ) I poked at the the stuck pixel with a micro cloth wrapped at my finger tip with a force well..Like throwing a dart at a dart board ,One quick hit and voila, no more stuck pixel , I hope this helps others . My monitor is a Samsung Syncmaster EX2220..... Thanks ,Hardwarecanucks.com .
