Can I use an Asus provided bios in an HP re-stamped Asus motherboard?

I recently received an HP DX2450 Micro tower pc. It has an Asus M2N68-LA motherboard. I understand that HP re-stamps Asus motherboards, so they have small differences and different model numbers. I noticed that a M2N68-AM motherboard looks extremely similar to mine, so I was wondering if it would be safe to try the M2N68-AM bios on my motherboard. If not, would it be possible to use the following processor in my motherboard?

  1. It has an AM2 socket, which means that that CPU will not work because it is an AM3 socket. As for the BIOS, I would think it would work, but if you mess something up in the BIOS, it can make your whole machine bad. I am not 100% sure you can, so I wouldn't.
