Super User

Your current bios is 1676.  The latest. I can find is 1754.

Here are the release notes.






thanks, but how can i update it?

i was having a problem when i inserted my new processor (Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E8500 Processor SLB9K 3.16 GHz 6MB 1333MHz Socket 775 Cpu) , the pc is running but it wont show anything on the screen,  I can only think of updating my bios will fix this, hope it will

Super User

Okay thanks, Just wanna clarify



Does  > E6600 Intel Core Duo E6600 2.4G LGA 775  support this bios update or my 

current bios 1676.

its says here >

1719 or greater, does it mean i need to update my current bios 1676, to the latest available 1754?

It means that, before you power on with a particular processor installed, you must have the necessary minimum BIOS version required to support that processor (or later) already installed.

Yea ty, BUT my question is > can  this processor ( E6600 Intel Core Duo E6600 2.4G LGA 775  ) support my current bios ??



Look the Info>

It is on the supported list.

But, you will need to update your bios with the old processor first.




My current bios is 1676, The REQUIREMENT for this process is 1719 Isn't I should update is to the newer version? >

Processor Number Processor Speed L2 Cache Size BIOS Version

E6600 2.40 GHz 4 MB 1719 or greater


Anyways how would i update my bios to the Old? Can someone List in depth instructions on how to do that (newbiehere).


Super User

You are making this difficult on yourself.

Your current bios is 1676

Your current processor is NOT the E6600

I gave you

Upgrade from 1676 to 1754

AFTER SUCCESSFUL UPGRADE, install the E6600 (as long as it is a good processor).


CAREFUL - there are TWO E6600.  Make sure you get the Core 2 Duo version,42807






I'm Sorry But I never said this is my process "E6600", I WAS just asking,

even tho you gave me "" still not clear how to make it (sorrybeginnerhere) even with this guide

thank you for your effort anyways ^_

Super User

ok, let us get this clear:

what processor is currently installed and running?

what bios do  you currently have?

what processor are you going to get?


When you have that sorted out, let us know.

Until then, you should reconsider spending any money on this questionable project.   This PC (from 2006) is 14-years old, and really not worth any effort and expenditure (in my opinion).

Also, you have been provided a list of compatible processors, and a document on how to update the bios, and the latest bios I can find.  Perhaps you should consider taking your PC to a repair shop for support.





current processor:"Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU 6300 @ 1.86GHz

current bios: "Intel Corp. MQ96510J.86A.1676.2007.0413.0149

processor going to get: E6600 Intel Core Duo E6600 2.4G LGA 775

first when i open this file " ", it SHOWS this file " MQ1754P.BIO "

so what will be the NEXT step of doing to update my BIOS?


i can only do iFlash Update with Bootable USB Device (

BUT i could find this file .exe ( first when i open this file " ", it SHOWS this file " MQ1754P.BIO " )

1. Save the iFlash BIOS update file to a temporary directory.
2. Double-click the *.EXE to extract necessary files. <<<<<

so i cant proceed to next step


when i opened MQ1754P.BIO >

And i dunno what to do next and thats my problem

















 if you wanna know why im saving (oratleastimproving) this 14 years old pc, YOU can email (itspersonal) >

First of all, delete that P.S. -- unless you really want the SPAM.

With your old processor in place, you need to install the latest BIOS using the BIOS Recovery process. Then you can look at replacing the processor with this new one.

To help you better, here are my step-by-step instructions for BIOS Recovery:

  1. NOTE: Read these instructions completely before starting and follow all instructions EXACTLY. Do not skip anything and do not alter how things are done.
  2. On a Windows-based PC, make sure that you have the .BIO file for the BIOS release that you wish to install. Do not use machine running any form of Linux or macOS!
  3. Insert a 32GB or smaller USB 2.0 flash drive into the PC. Do not use USB 3.0 flash drives!
  4. Format this USB flash drive using the Windows Format applet. Select to install the FAT32 file system (NOT vFAT, NOT exFAT; FAT32 only). Very important: You must also specify that the Quick Format option be Disabled (unchecked).
  5. NOTE: If FAT32 is not offered as a choice by the Format applet, your USB flash drive is too big; start over with another smaller one.
  6. Copy the .BIO file into the root folder of this USB flash drive. This should be the only .BIO file in the root folder of the USB flash drive.
  7. Properly eject the USB flash drive. Do not just yank it out! Do this from File Explorer or using the Safely Remove Hardware and Eject Media System Tray applet.
  8. Power off the Desktop Board system.
  9. Remove the yellow BIOS Configuration jumper from the board. It will be the only yellow jumper on the board; the rest will usually be black.
  10. NOTE: Remember the pins that this jumper was plugged onto; you will need this information later.
  11. Plug the USB flash drive into one of the black USB 2.0 ports on the back panel of the board. Do not use blue or yellow USB 3.0 port. Do not use any front panel USB ports.
  12. Power on the system.
  13. The BIOS Recovery process should start automatically. You should see a progress report on your main monitor.
  14. NOTE: If you do not see a progress report displayed on a monitor, do not power off the system for at least 15 minutes! While it is rare, it is possible for the process to proceed without an onscreen display; you must give it ample time to complete, just in case.
  15. When the BIOS Recovery process is complete, you will be asked to power off the system. Do so. This includes unplugging it from AC power!
  16. Restore the yellow BIOS Configuration jumper to the pins it was on previously. This should be across pins 1 and 2 of this (three pin) header.
  17. Remove the USB flash drive from the back panel of the board.
  18. Plug the power supply back into AC power and then Power on the board.
  19. Immediately begin pressing the F2 key, over and over and over (approx. once per second) until you see the BIOS Setup (or Visual BIOS) screen displayed.
  20. Verify, using the BIOS version string, that the BIOS installed properly. Stop if it isn't.
  21. Press the F9 key (followed by the Y key) to reset of the BIOS configuration.
  22. Press the F10 key (followed by the Y key) to save the BIOS Configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
  23. Once screen is cleared (goes black), begin pressing the F2 key, over and over, until you see the BIOS Setup screen displayed.
  24. Make any changes to the BIOS configuration that you desire (for example, disabling NUMLOCK) or that you require (for example, setting Boot Order, enabling UEFI, etc.).
  25. Press the F10 key (followed by the Y key) to save the BIOS Configuration and exit BIOS Setup.
  26. Test.

Again, follow this process exactly. Doing anything wrong could brick the board permanently, so be careful.

Good Luck.
