Looking for BIOS versions 1577 & 1698 for this mobo DG965SS. If someone has them ALL it would be a miracle after Intel decided to delete them!

Your 15-year old motherboard has no real purpose in today's world.  Do you want the bios files only for some academic satisfaction, or do you have a real problem to solve?  Besides, these files can be found on the web.

Then, look for those files on the web.

If you have a problem, provide detail.   There is no support for your board.

Searching for MQ1577P.BIO and MQ1698.BIO, I see some places where these BIOS can be downloaded. It is all a matter of whether you trust the sites that are hosting these files.

For your 2006 motherboard (read 15 years old), it is very likely you will soon experience component failure.  Backup bios files will not help you.  Keep a copy of your current bios.

Curious - what is your love affair with this board?

If i experience a component failure i ll get something else. It makes the job done for me and i dont need a new motherboard for now. As for mediocre you said i have here another pc here (brand new) with an Asus P5L-mx motherboard.  Except some features she is a bit more down compared to Dg965ss so i dont see the reason why i should switch to a newer mobo as far as it works for me. Also mine is a retail version with windows licence so maybe this another reason i keep her running. (12+ hours a day).

-I have BIOS versions 1751 installed and 1699 backed up too.
