Well, it's an Intel D815EEA according to my OEM and a couple freeware programs. I guess what I said about upgrading to version 9 before 11 on some boards is irrelevant, my board (dependant upon production date) was not included in what I was reading.
I downloaded the express installer from intel for version 11 and it says "This program is unable to continue. The BIOS you are trying to update to is invalid for your system." This is quite frustrating as this file is a dl directly from intel directly for this board...
And as for the other method of install working if it says it did...The BIOS still identified itself as version 3 instead of 11 after that so called update.
I've experimented and removed a jumper near the CMOS battery ( i think thats what u call it) and the battery itself, but all it seemed to do is mess with the clock and some other stuff. Oddly enough my AOL Welcome screen is now configured differently.... It still has me at version 3 though, which is what has been on the comp for like 4-5 years.
Yes, but no sprinkles. For every sprinkle i find, i shall KILL you.
