No, it will look something like this: [BX97510J.86A.1487.EB.EXE
I am not sure you should be messing with your bios. Try the memory first. If it does not work, then report back.
In Al's example (which is for the Windows-based EBU installer, which you should NOT use any longer), 1487 is the BIOS version number. And, in fact, 1487 is the last BIOS that was released for this board (I can provide it if you do not have it). Also, as Al indicated, installing a newer BIOS is not going to allow you to use any additional memory; the amount of memory supported is 8GB (2GB per DIMM).
Ok, explicaré que pasa.
Quiero dar una segunda oportunidad a mi viejo PC. Quiero aumentar la RAM a 8Gb (lo cual sé que es el máximo que soporta la placa base) Pero, me dijeron que debía estar seguro que la versión de la BIOS que tenía era la última versión. Es por esto que hice la pregunta.
En información de sistema me dice lo siguiente:
Versión y fecha de BIOS Intel Corp. BX97510J.86A.1478.2007.0222.1002, 22/02/2007
Versión de SMBIOS 2.3
Al y n.scott, muchas gracias por vuestra ayuda y paciencia
Ok, you have BIOS 1478 currently, but BIOS 1487 is the latest (last) available. The attached ZIP file contains the .BIO file for BIOS 1487. Install this file using the F7 method. If this system is old enough that there is no support for BIOS installation via F7, let me know and I will try to find the iFlash tool.
Ok, you will need to do this via BIOS Recovery. Here are my step-by-step instructions for this process:
For more information on the BIOS Update process, consult Intel Desktop Boards BIOS Update Instructions and, for this case, Intel Desktop Boards Recovery BIOS Update Instructions.
You followed the instructions exactly? You reformatted the flash disk with the Quick Format option disabled? How long did the format option take to run?
Hhmmm, it should have worked. Unfortunately, I don't have anything old enough to investigate why it doesn't. If you have the capability, you could try preparing a CD, per the instructions here: Intel Desktop Boards Recovery BIOS Update Instructions.
If that doesn't work, you may need to use the Express BIOS Update installer (you are running Windows, right?). Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of the file(s) myself. I did a google using search string "intel d975xbx bios download" and got a few hits for where you can download this file. Some just link back to the Intel site, so their downloads will fail. There are a few that have their own copies of the file(s), however. The issue is whether you can trust that the file(s) haven't been modified.
@piloty8 Back to your original question, you should not need to mess with the bios if all you want to do is use 8GB of memory. With a board this old, and lack of support files, "if it isn't broke, don't fix it".
