Hi,
Simple Tip.

To Avoid the problems in PC regarding the driver performance, accessories Malfunctions and software support always update to the latest BIOS of the Motherboard. it will help you to get the most out of ur pc.

Mostt Problems that i faced in PCs are due to the old BIOS versions that are not been updated time to time.

if you dont know what is the VERSION of your BIOS then here are the steps to know.

Go to the link http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/CPU-Z-Download-6980.html

download the software called CPU Z.
now run the software and it will provide you the details on the motherbaord in Motherboard Tab. you will find the VERSION of the BIOS as BIOS Version.

F15q and F15o are BETA versions.
Meaning in actuality, they use the consumer as a guinea pig, and see what the results are. Then they might 'tweak it', and call it good.
Becomes an Alpha version then.

['Tweak it'.
Work the bugs out that have been found by the consumer]

My bad. Let me use the 'prose' they use,

"What is BETA?
BETA describes a new version that is reliable yet may not include all the features of the final product. During this phase we are previewing new features and gathering customer input to insure our product provides the best experience possible."

Moving on....

Next, the logical thought is; to download the Latest version.
The thinking is that the latest version has all the bugs worked out.

However this may be a fallacy for your particular motherboard.
The latest version may not work.
Makes you feel all warm, and fuzzy inside, huh? (NOT)

The procedure to use when updating BIOS, and using any version; is to make sure you keep a copy of the old one.
When upgrading, you will be asked if you wish to make a copy, of the old BIOS program.

YES, is the answer.

Something happens with the new version, you have the old version to revert back to; and at least be able to use your motherboard.
No BIOS? Might as well use the mobo for a Frisbee.

So,......looking at the different versions that you see, look at each one's date.

F5 is 03/28/2012. March 28, 2012
Indicates Enhanced overclocking capability.

What does F6 do, that came out April 26, 2012?
1) Improved Processor overclocking, using a processor based on the Sandy Bridge Core,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sandy_Bridge

2) Brings support for using an Intel Xeon processor.

Now look at the next version, F7.

All the improvements you see listed for each version, are culminated in the newest version,

F14.

That is, the newest version that has proved to be stable.
Supposedly the 'bugs' are worked out.

The other two versions F15o and F15q, again; are BETA versions.
Should ONLY be used by those who have a lot of experience, and know what to do if it fails.

So this leaves us with F14.
HOWEVER again, make SURE you make a copy of the old BIOS version.
When updating you will be asked.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(ALSO, if your power goes out in the middle of a BIOS update, kiss the motherboard goodbye; unless you made a copy of the existing BIOS version.

This is why I, and others state; that unless there is a definite reason to upgrade the BIOS program on your computer -> DON'T)

For save old bios and install new bios Dell OptiPlex gx620 (from version A05 to A011)


If you are looking to update your BIOS then you can obtain the latest version from Dell. There should also be a step by step guide on how to correctly perform the upgrade. However, unless there is a real need to upgrade your BIOS then you should not have to do this. I have worked on and custom built several PC's and have never had to update the BIOS.

Panasonic CF-E1 Bios Update


Thats an old pc and flashing the bios (if not done right) could kill your pc..... with it bein so old and computers now being so cheap your best bet is to invest in a new computer. I have looked for your bios update with no luck either.
