you have no need to update or upgrade your bios version anywhere if it work properly, but now if u have prob wid it,
1. try any other processor (P4, Dual Core, Core 2 Duo e.t.c)
2. reinstall any other version (0066 or 0052), just change the way of installation (this time install it from Floppy drive or other one, which is different to the 1st time u install from)
AMI beep codes of 1 long and 3 short are, in fact, correctly identified as memory errors. One thing to note is if this memory is Dual Channel, you can only install the memory in groups of two. You must first fill DIMM slot 1 and 3 before filling DIMM slots 2 and 4.
The below website has much more information about your particular motherboard and there's a note about some JEDEC setting for memory that you might want to watch out for or disable to see if it improves stability.
As for Windows XP 32-bit not recognizing more than 3.5 (at most) memory, this is unavoidable. To see all 8 GB, you would need a 64-bit version of Windows. This is something that cannot be altered by BIOS or memory choices, unfortunately. Feel lucky in the fact that you have XP Pro as XP Home will only recognize up to 2.5GB. You'll never utilize all 8GB unless you upgrade your OS, so keep that in mind!
pls check the RAM try re installing the RAM or try replacing them , may be it is a co incedent u thought it as a bios update failure pls check and reply back with mother board complete model number and manufacturer with processor details
Try to find out from manufacture which processors are supported in different bios versions. You might have to upgrade the bios with your old processor as long as the bios you are upgrading to supports the new processor. This is true even if you have to downgrade bios meaning going to an earlier bios. It might not go into bios after the first reboot with old processor because it might not be supported but your new one is. this is when you do the CPU swap.
I have to agree "...that the motherboard's bios doesn't recognize the processor and that I should upgrade the bios...". Though I think that this is only a display issue and not necessarily true CPU speed. You can check if the correct CPU is displayed inside Windows by right click on My Computer and details would be shown in the System Properties.
To upgrade the BIOS:
1. Determine/log your current BIOS and its date by pressing Pause on initial boot when motherboard details are shown;
2. Continue booting by pressing escape and run your Windows normally. Go to the website of your motherboard manufacturer and verify if they have an updated BIOS (compare date of release). If an updated BIOS is available, download. Likewise download the flashing utility. Further instructions are also available on a step by step procedure. Some newer mb versions/models have a Window based update feature. Check if you have such.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things are or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
