Gateway BENGAL motherboard:

That is the latest bios ever released.
This board with this bios does not support the newer 45nm generation CPUs, get one that is supported (Phenom 8xxx/9xxx series).
Alternative is getting a commercial bios upgrade that may or may not give you support for this CPU. http://www.esupport.com
