WINDOWS 7 ULTIMATE
I have an abit nf-m2 nview motherboard with a previous AMD Athlon 64 X2 5200+ which works fine and dandy. Recently I swapped out a few things including CPU to an Athlon 64 X2 5050e Brisbane, the system still runs fine, but cpu is reported as Athlon 64 X2 Unknown model. I am thinking a bios flash, but would like to get some opinions first as to what other possible reasons it could be?
Things I've tried:
1: Ran driver update from device manager, but didn't find anything. Says K8 is the best thing windows could find and is already installed.
2: Uninstalled the CPU chipset driver from device manager and restarted.
In case anyone is wondering, these are swapped items:
500W PSU -> 300W PSU
65W CPU -> 45W CPU
7200RPM HDD -> 5400RPM HDD
4x1 GB DDR2 -> 2x2 GB DDR2
