BIOS updates oftentimes add support for new CPUs. Wherever you found the BIOS download page, the CPU support list shouldn't be too far away.

I messed up earlier, the Q6600 actually came out before the E5200.

If it's any help, here's the CPU support page for a Gigabyte G41 board which includes both the E5200 and Q6600, but that's not necessarily indicative of your particular board.

Kindof makes me wonder if the [purported] DDR3 is perhaps the reason the older Q6600 isn't working....
