Hi all,

I'm trying to upgrade my dad's old PC, which is a Compaq machine, using a Foxconn 2AAF motherboard.

The information from the board itself, shows:

HP 616663-001
H-AIRA-RS780L-uATX Revision 1.02
Socket AM3 Motherboard

But I can't find any mention of it on Foxconn's site, or any bios updates etc.

There's an HP site for the board, but there's only driver downloads

Was wondering if anyone had any advice?

Well from personal experience HP does not offer BIOS updates (from the one HP computer I have owned previously, it was an HP P6604f). I would just contact HP if they even do BIOS updates.

Also why do you need a BIOS Update? You upgrading the CPU? I believe there are already compatible upgrades available as said in the support page.

This is what is stated on the support page:

" AMD Phenom II X4 9xx/9xxe/8xx Quad-Core (Deneb core)
AMD Phenom II X3 7xx/7xxe Triple-Core (Heka core)
AMD Phenom II X2 5xx (Callisto core)
AMD Athlon X4 6xx/6xxe (Propus)
AMD Athlon X3 4xx/4xxe (Rana)
AMD Athlon X2 2xx/2xxe (Regor)
AMD Sempron Single Core Processor 1xx (Sargas core)"

Edit: Forgot to mention, it also support CPUs up until 95 watts TDP.
