Back again - upgraded my processor to A Quad.
Okay, here's My Story.
My Computer Is A HP a6813w. I purchased A Quad core processor "Intel Xeon X3210 @ 2.13GHz"
The motherboard supports To W, And The processor is X.
I installed it and it works fine, no issues. But i looked up A bios update And My bios was 2009(I think) and the newest was 2010.
I downloaded it, And it was a "Exe" and i ran it, It froze My computer up twice, And made me hard reset it. The third time, It worked fine, And i restarted. It said after the splash screen That it went back to default.
So i removed The quad, put the supported Dual back in, And tried it again. No luck, it still loaded The default Back.
My question is, One, Why can i not update The bios?
two, Is The update Necessary?
