I have just bought an upgrade for my pc. I got the i3 4150 and the h81m d2v. My pc is not booting. Do i need to update my bios?

I would do so as some of the h81 boards need a BIOS update before they work with the haswell/haswell refresh CPUs, then if that doesn't work, try other things

Yes you might need a BIOS update to the motherboard.
The CPU is a Haswell Refresh cpu.

The site does not say anything about that on the bios update to f4..
Do you really think this will solve the problem?

The Haswell Refresh cpu are part of the 4th gen cpu. Gigabyte just hasn't worded it to said Haswell Refresh. But it means that.
Yes you need to do a BIOS update.
You can skip F4 and go to F5 directly.

And the US:

What country are you in?


Israel btw what bios version does this mobo come with?


I'm not sure. You can check by download CPU-Z and look it up in the motherboard tab.

The motherboard will work with F4 or F5. But F5 is already out, you might as well use the latest one. Are you sure you can't find it, i can find it

At the moment i can't check cpu z..
So it didn't work because it came with an earlier version than f4?
I am asking because i have been thinking my cpu arrived broken and the store technician told me that the chances are very small that it came doa.

If you go into the BIOS, you can see what version you have

You need a compatible cpu before able to access the BIOS. Go into a computer repair shop and ask if they can update the motherboard BIOS for you using a Haswell cpu, not a Haswell refresh cpu.

My pc is currently at a computer technician. He is updating the bios, is that the only solution?
Did the motherboard come with f4 or did i just need the f5 update? lol i am really worried :)

Your motherboard most likely comes with an earlier bios version hence why your cpu doesn't work.

What ram did you get. Most of the time it will work. Motherboards manufacturers can't always test every ram released.
