Hi,

I've tried express install of BIOS update. but even after half an hour the its kind of idle. Blank screen.

So i had to interrupt it. As i've read that it doesn't take that long to update BIOS. after interruption. when the computer boots up. I get the message BIOS updated successfully. but when i check the version its still the same. I dunno how to do the other methods of BIOS installation and I'm kind of hesitant to do it.
Would appreciate any other solutions. I've googled those threads already. all in vain.

Plus I've also read that even BIOS update wouldn't fix the issue in many cases.

Well.. I'm guessing since the mobo name is not being identified properly it doesn't update.

Wait for some hardware expertise.

Have you also posted at Intel's Support site? Is the mobo still covered under the 1 year hardware warranty?

No, Its kind of an old mobo. Intel has ended the interactive support for this model.

Your motherboard might be a altered motherboard by the manufacture of the computer according to the information that I have found.
What is the brand name of the computer and does it have the motherboard that the computer came with?

Error messages that an AA (or Altered Assembly) number is not programmed on the system indicate the motherboard has been altered by the OEM

This might help finding out what your system specs are.

This might not help, but have you tried clearing the cmos battery?

BEFORE updating BIOS - verify that DG33FB is your Mobo.

I searched Intel for DG33FB (from your system specs) and found the following BIOS update (07/15/2009):
https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Det...g33fb&lang=eng

I suggest using Recovery BIOS Update [DP0572P.BIO] or ISO Image BIOS Update [DP0572P.ISO]
See (Which file should I download?)

A small barcode label, like the image shown here, is found on the Intel® Desktop Board. The numbers following the letters AA can help identify the model and version of your Intel Desktop Board.



This image shows an example of the label placement on a board.
