I'm desperate. I've tried everything. wifi card doesn't work whatsoever. a bios message appears saying it's not supported Tried several wifi cards and all did the same.

It's RSA signed and I take full responsibility for all risks.

Model: Probook 4330s
Latest Bios Revision: 68SRR Ver. F.41

thank you so much.
please let me know if you need anykind of additional information or if you need me to do something. I'll do anything to help. Thank you.
Unfortunately you bios, like all new HP bios, have a signature check on startup which prevents the rom from being modified. Until we isolate the check(s), then these kind of bios are currently unmoddable. Sorry.
Hello people !!!
I'm a proud but also very sad owner of a HP Probook 4330s. The little fellar supported a great deal of change through the years, from I3 to I7 cpu, from 2 to 8 gb of ram, new SSHD, bluray drive, usb 3.0 card but now, I want to change the wireless module in order to have a high bandwidth AC connection and Widi to my smart TV. So I purchased an Intel dual-band 7260 ac module to change the old Atheros card ... and is not recognized. To me it was a horrific surprise to find out from your forums that HP has locked this feature into recognizing a handful of adapters which are all wireless N and not to be found in my country.
I'm not sure if anyone else has asked for this...but if you are able to give me an answer or a solution ... you'll be forever in my prayers.
That said:
HP Probook 4330s
Product: xx945EA#ABB
Bios version: latest F.50 (sp68040.exe)
wireless adapter model: 7260HMW
FCC ID: PD97260H
IC: 1000M-7260H

I'm not sure what other information is required... Thanks in advance to all who read this !!!
you can visit
Not Moddable only and not all sp5xxxx.exe can be modded !
After this date 11-2011 all HP Bioses are RSA Internal Signed so only using an SPI Programmer
can be rewrite back !

Your Brain . . . . It's the best tool U can use ! Wink
Don't FLASH the Bios Mod if You get a Size Alert, You risk a Brick !!!
