hey all, was wondering if some wizard might be willing to mod some ivybridge micro code into the dell inspiron 620 a10 bios. everything i read says dell never added it. and i got a coworker with a 10 year old that wants a gaming pc. i got an ivy bridge i5.... and that [censored] inspiron 620 with a pentium cpu. and if im completely ignorant will someone explain to me if this is not possible why?

thank you

Find BIOS chip on your motherboard and write down information from it.

Hello again!
Hopefully this is what you're asking for, i tried to get it as clear as possible!
it's MXIC MX 25L3206E M2I-12G.
This is 4MB BIOS chip, but compatible BIOS for your motherboard (with Ivy Bridge support) requires 8MB BIOS chip.
