Gigabyte bios confussed

Hi again.

I have been checking CPU compatibility on the gigabyte website for my
GAK8NF-9 mobo to see if it will take a AMD X2 4200+ Manchester socket 939.
There is no yes or no it says instead lots of F numbers which the key says
"since Bios version" to run this CPU it looks like I need version F7 or
higher. I think I have amibios v6 or something like that but after my mobo
details on boot is shows F2.

I am confused about all this and need some advise. How do I know what bios I
have, can I flash this and is it risky?

Thanks again

Andy

Check the bottom right of your screen when you boot.
The BIOS revision is normally written there.
(For a very short time <g>.).

When the bios is displayed on the screen hit the Pause/Break key

Sometimes they neglect to update the version number. Compare the date
of the BIOS to the versions posted at the Gigabyte website.

LOL ... It will take more than speed reading to accomplish what the
OP wants.
