Updating bios with usb
After receiving the replacement processors I installed one in the test system because it does not perform any tasks critical to my network.
Upon attempting to power up the system, I received nothing but a repeating pattern of three one second beeps from the motherboard speaker.
I don't know for certain what the last field is, but I think it might be a time in 24-hour format so that the last three fields represent the date and time the BIOS was compiled.
I purchased them several years ago from the local Intrex computer store with Intel DH61BE motherboard that supports third-generation Core i3, i5, and i7 processors in the LGA1155 package at up to 3.5GHz.The motherboard documentation—yes, I download and keep it—translated that as meaning the system had a memory error.Of course, it was perfectly good memory right in the middle of the spec for the new processor.There is a Windows application that can install BIOS upgrades on modern computers while Windows is running but that is obviously not an option for me.So I need to approach BIOS upgrades a bit differently.
