Lower left corner of the first info screen will be a string of characters. This is a positive ID of the board, BIOS version and creation date. Search for that info, should be some links. Best would be to go to the Intel® site, search for the motherboard model. Should be a list of drivers, CPU types and BIOS versions. Possibly the base model of your motherboard is compatible across different models. ... ard-DQ35JO
A BIOS update is needed only if a newer CPU or other features are available. Ensure you do a backup of the original BIOS program if a need to revert.

F@H.. to solve mankind's maladies.. in our lifetimes!
