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
That is because the E8500 is not compatible with your board:
Okay thanks, Just wanna clarify
Does > E6600 Intel Core Duo E6600 2.4G LGA 775 support this bios update or my
current bios 1676.
1719 or greater, does it mean i need to update my current bios 1676, to the latest available 1754?
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).
You are making this difficult on yourself.
Your current bios is 1676
Your current processor is NOT the E6600
I gave you.bio
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
I'm Sorry But I never said this is my process "E6600", I WAS just asking,
even tho you gave me "MQ1754P.bio" still not clear how to make it (sorrybeginnerhere) even with this guide https://web.archive.org/web/20191120134704/https://downloadmirror.intel.com/17520/eng/BIOS%20Update%...
thank you for your effort anyways ^_
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 " MQ1754P.zip ", 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 ( https://web.archive.org/web/20191120134704/https://downloadmirror.intel.com/17520/eng/BIOS%20Update%...)
BUT i could find this file .exe ( first when i open this file " MQ1754P.zip ", 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 > https://drive.google.com/file/d/1d5leeHPsrgwH1sf4NDmdot4VIHaF5CRP/view?usp=sharing
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) >firstname.lastname@example.org
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:
Again, follow this process exactly. Doing anything wrong could brick the board permanently, so be careful.
