I have the latest BIOS for my motherboard now version A06 for dell dimension 4300.
It doesn't matter that you have the latest version.. All that means is that it can now handle the size of processor you are trying to install..
Doesn't mean it will do this automatically.. there could be a jumper on the mobo that needs changing or a setting in BIOS that needs changing!!
Without see ing the BIOS (Setup) or a diagram of your mobo, I cannot accurately give that information!!

I found this on the net quite easily.
Here is a tech spec with diagram of mobo for dimension 4300:
If you require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact me, either via pm or on this thread.
Ya.. It takes me to the Dell - United Kingdom site.. No diagram there that I can see and, if they have a copy of your manual and BIOS settings, read it and make the change yourself !!
