    BIOS update for DQ965CO with strange BIOS version string


      These are the instructions at the support pages for the BIOS update (http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/CS-022312.htm):


      "To identify your current BIOS version, check the BIOS version string:

      1. During boot, enter the BIOS setup by pressing F2.
      2. Check the Main menu.
      3. The 4-digit number after the '86A' or '86I' is the current BIOS version, as in this example: KGIBX10J.86A.3822.2009.0928.1349
      4. Press Escape to exit BIOS Setup."


      I did that but my my string has no 86A or 86I, it is "CO96510J.54T.0030.2007.0530.1030".

      And the Express-BIOS-update doesn't work, it says: This program is unable to continue. The BIOS you are trying to update to is invalid for your system."

      I'm running Windows 7 x64 RC.

      Please help!
