Hi,

My first reaction is that the BIOS cannot match the id of the chip to its known table. Device Manager in Windows actually queires the chip directly instead of using the BIOS tables.

Have you run the latest firmware update CD? This usually updates the microcodes and then it will find a match.

Hope this helps,

Will

Last thing to do is to write down the prodcut number and model of the chip and check the processor compatiblity list for that machine. It could be newer than what the machine can see.

Was this an upgrade from a previous processor?
