Good day to all
I own the desktop board in caption (D945PSN), which has been "laid up" (deactivated) for some years now. It was bought as a full boxed version: Model BOXD945PSNLK, AA No. C96906-402, S/N BTSN53200901. I am trying to put it in service again, in order to build a PC, which will serve my country house needs, whenever this becomes necessary.
I intend to put an Intel Pentium D 960 (3.6 GHz) Processor on it, which also is available and idle for quite a while. By looking into Intel's List of Supported Processors for this board (http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945psn/sb/CS-026897.htm]List http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d945psn/sb/CS-026897.htm), I can see that this processor is supported with BIOS version 0096 or greater.
However, I am not sure which BIOS version exists on my own board. I need therefore, to know how I can identify the existing BIOS version and if it becomes necessary, how I can update it with the newest one.
Thank you in advance.

Good day to all, again
I have just tried to operate this motherboard temporarily with another Intel processor (a Pentium 4, 660-3.6 GHz) and during displaying the BIOS main menu, I can read tha BIOS version is the following:
Apparently, this is an older BIOS version, therefore, it has to be updated with the newer one. The second part of my question it is still valid ((how I can update it).
