Bios for ibm is at and you should never update bios if you dont know much of computers but always use software to flash bios from windows... will be good to download bios, the other part is up to you, because if you are clueless on this matter you better take your computer to an it technician before braking it down.

As I understand it, you tried to upgrade the CPU from 1.86GHz to a 3.00GHz. The error message is stating that the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) cannot recognise the CPU because it is not in the list of supported CPUs. You need to download an updated BIOS (if available) for the particular motherboard in your PC. You will need to get the model number of the motherboard which is usually written on the motherboard. Then go to this web site:

Search for an updated bios for your motherboard. There should be instructions on how to update the bios.

Sir how to update my bios. i have ibm netvista bios 4.0 bios and p4 board

I'd suggest going to the IBM website, follow links for support and downloads, entering when required details of your PC.

This should take you to the latest bios software available. It will also give you advice on how to install it. It may also be self installing.

Since you upgraded the processor now it requires BIOS (Basic Input output system) update to get it working correctly... Tell me your computer model number so that i can paste link to download BIOS update for you which you need to download and install to get your computer working !!

Thanks ..

Bios Problem

if you still can enter bios setup look for the advanced menu in the BIOS for "processor updating" or something like this and set to "disabled". Save the changes.
otherwise your motherboard perhaps is incompartible with cpu
for example cpu 133 and motherboard 100 or 66MHZ
please let me know the result.

You don't have to update your BIOS just to have it changed into English... It's all there, your problem is how to get into that change language area... Check your system manual I am sure you'll find what you need...
