Are you sure that the CPU artitucture is correct for the motherboard that your putting the processor into?, just because it fits doesn't always mean it will work,

I want to update my bios


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:
IDE
Western Digital WD1600AABS
150GB

7) Optical Drive:
IDE (EIDE really)
Manufacturer = LG Electronics
Model number = GH22NP21
DVD burner drive

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.

Upgrade the processor.


More important is the question of what processors can your motherboard handle. Certain motherboards accept certain sockets and speeds of processor, so you can choose from that to decide what you want to upgrade it with.

See page 8 of this manual. Your compuer has a Socket 370 processor, an Intel Pentium II. You can upgrade it with another one of those. Here's the manual listing the specs of the processor the motherboard can take:
http://bizsupport.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpv06683/lpv06683.pdf

Yikes, a Pentium II?? Unfortunately it will definately be more economical to just replace the whole motherboard, or the whole computer! This motherboard will only support a range of P2 processors, an upgrade will cost several hundred dollars, close to the price of a brand new computer with a P4 in it.
