Bios Inaccurate

The pc that I have came with a Cyrix M11-350GP processor. I removed it and installed an AMD K6-2/400 processer. I ran the SiSoft Sandra diagnostic software and it told me that my SMBIOS/DMI was inaccurate. What should I do. I have been told to flashmy bios, but I don't know what the bios file name is.

Bios Inaccurate

by dmiles In reply to Bios Inaccurate

The SMBIOS/DMI -System Management or Desk Top Management Interface obtains system information
This information is reported verbatim and cannot be checked by Sandra,it is usually set by manufacturers of generic info.
Unless I know that I did not have the latest update to the BIOS,I would ignore this tip
I too get this message from running Sandra and I know for a fact that I have the latest update to my bios,even after updating the bios I still received the tip,so I would suggest this can be ajudgement to update bios
You can locate the BIOS version during startup,it will be listed in upper left corner of the screen and the manufacturer partno. will be listed in lower left corner during the post (ex.Award v2.0)
once this screen comes upyou can press the pause key and note the manufacturer and version number
