    The bios update was recommended as a solution to resolve a defect in the board. that causes the cooling fan to operate at min. speed as well as gaming issues and Vista related problems.

    Thanks I'll keep looking.



    ps I have found a post that tells me it may be the smbios that is to blame?Looking at this now.

    Flashed Bios from dvd Worked great.My fan issue has been resolved! As a bonus my Ram was finally recognized as 667 not 533.So there have been additional benifits in overall performance!

    Thank You All

It sounds like you have a corrupt or wrong bios update version. If the bios update you are trying to flash is not to resolve a problem you are currently trying to overcome, it would be wise to leave it alone. Be careful or you may render your bios completely unusuable.

    Check to make sure the bios is not locked and set to "flashable." (only some boards)



    I would recommend using the bootable floppy or bootable cd method described in this document.



    http://downloadmirror.intel.com/14367/EN...



    Just make sure you are CERTAIN you have the CORRECT bios update for the SPECIFIC model and version of your MB.



    It has been my experience the bootable floppy or bootable cd methods are the best ways to flash any bios, because there is less going on between the bios and the flash software. Some manufacturers even recommend using a stripped down version of DOS to boot the computer, and then to run the flash utility from a separate floppy.



    http://www.biosflash.com/e/bios-boot-dis...



    Conversely, some manufacturers specify booting only from a Win98 or WinME bootable floopy so that the flash utility and bios signature can be copied to and executed from the RAM drive created by the boot disk.

Oh?

Kvpsy,

The information tells me;

1) Operating System: Windows XP Pro with Service Pack 3 (SP/3)

2) Processor: (CPU) Intel Pentium 4, 3.06GHz,
(Or also stated as 3.066MegaHertz) {3.066MHz}
Uses an LGA775 processor socket.

Front Side Bus = 133MHz.
(Intel processors are 'Quad Pumped'. 133MHz is the Internal Clock. 533MHz is the External Clock.
4 x 133 = 532. Number is rounded up to 533)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Prescott_.2890.C2.A0nm.29_2

Scroll down.
Prescott Core, 90nm architecture.
Pentium 4 HT model 524.
sSpec number on top of the Processor, (Heatsink removed), is either
SL8ZZ, or SL9CA

3) Motherboard manufacturer name, and model number:
Intel D101GGC
Version AAD357

3) Motherboard chipset:
ATI Radeon Xpress RC410 = Northbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Northbridges_2

IXP450/SB450 = Southbridge chip

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_ATI_chipsets#Comparison_of_Southbridges_2

4) GPU: (Graphics Processing Unit, or slang = graphics chipset)
Built into the motherboard chipset; ATI Radeon 200 series with 256MB's of graphics ram memory.
(? Really? I would think more like 64MB for Integrated Graphics.
Are you running a graphics card, in the PCI-Express slot on the motherboard? Got one in one of the PCI slots?)

5) Ram Memory:
2 Ram memory slots
DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz. Also known as PC3200.

Maximum TOTAL amount is 2048MB. (2GB)
Amount of ram memory that installed now, 1024MegaByte. (Or also stated as 1GigaByte)
960MB is what shows.
(64MB's of ram memory is being borrowed)

32MB DRAM modules. Memory module/s ('Stick') use 5 Volts (DC)
60nanosecond to 70ns, Cas Latency of 3. (CL3)

6) Harddrive:

8) C-Media CMI8738 audio (Sound) chipset

9) RTL 8139 Ethernet chipset

10) Basic Input/Output System (BIOS) manufacturer = Phoenix/Award.
Version = 6.00PG
Release date = 04/20/2006
BIOS String ID = GC11010N.86A.0311.2006.0420.1525

NOW, the message you received is -

SUGGESTION: Are you looking for a BIOS upgrade?

System BIOS is more than 2 years old. (WELL NO KIDDING!!)

Video BIOS is more than 2 years old. (Yeah? AND?)

A) AS SOON as you purchase a motherboard, the BIOS program is ALREADY out of date.

BIOS upgrades are made about 2 weeks, after the motherboard hits the market.

TWO WEEKS!!

What does this mean?

It means LEAVE IT ALONE.

If everything is working OK, DO NOT perform a BIOS upgrade.

Why?

Because for;
1) IF, the power goes out to your house/business, when you are downloading, the BIOS upgrade WILL NOT be completed.
What does that mean?
Take the motherboard out of your computer, and use it for a Frisbee.

2) IF, the BIOS upgrade is too new, and/or NOT compatible, AND if you do not save the old BIOS version, take the motherboard out of your computer, and use it for a Frisbee.

IS there a cure for ruining the BIOS program in your BIOS chipset, on your motherboard, and downloading, and installing the original one?

SURE!

Take it to a PRO, who will download the ORIGINAL BIOS, to a Floppy Disk, (Or disks), using an internal Floppy Disk drive, connected with a floppy disk ribbon cable, to your floppy drive connection on your motherboard, and put it on your motherboard.

MAYBE.

(Not shouting. Illustrating a point)

OR, if the BIOS chipset is removable, (It is soldered on the motherboard), perhaps another BIOS chipset is available, for a PRO to solder the good one back on the motherboard.

You HAVE been advised.

D946gzis bios.bin file i need pls help


Hi,

You need to update your bios interface and to do so, CLICK HERE. It's a PDF file and all you need to do is to click on the 3rd topic which is for the BIOS Update and what you need to do are as follows:

Updating the BIOS with the Intel® Express

BIOS Update Utility

With the Intel Express BIOS Update utility you can update the system BIOS while in

the Windows environment. The BIOS file is included in an automated update utility

that combines the functionality of the Intel® Flash Memory Update Utility and the ease

of use of Windows-based installation wizards.

To update the BIOS with the Intel Express BIOS Update utility:

1. Go to the Intel World Wide Web site:

http://support.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/

2. Navigate to the D946GZIS page, click "[view] Latest BIOS updates," and select the

Express BIOS Update utility file.

3. Download the file to your hard drive. (You can also save this file to a removable

USB device. This is useful if you are updating the BIOS for multiple identical

systems.)

4. Close all other applications. This step is required. Your system will be rebooted at

the last Express BIOS Update window.

5. Double-click the executable file from the location on your hard drive where it was

saved. This runs the update program.

6. Follow the instructions provided in the dialog boxes to complete the BIOS update.
