I just bought a motherboard(used) for my 5150 Inspiron. It was apparently from a 1100 series unit. It will not boot with the CPU (3.86GHz IntelP4) from the 5150 nor will allow me to use the Video card from the 5150. Is there some way to flash the BIOS so that the MB will recognize and use the new parts from the 5150?
The MB is a Dell Inspiron 1100 1150 5100 5150 Motherboard 2.4GHZ @BIOS rev A29.
Is it possible to flash a 1100 MB with a 5150 BIOS update?
Thanx in advance.
