Faulty Motherboard Recognition of my CPU (XP-3200)
Posted on 2004-09-04
I recently intalled my brand-new processor (XP-3200, 400FSB) on my motherboard.
After installing the processor, my MB recognizes the processor as "Unknown Processor, 1.2 Ghz." What? Why is there such faulty hardware recognition?
There are a few potential problems. The most obvious one is that the processor is 400FSB while the Motherboard only has native support for 333FSB, I'm having a lot of difficulty installing the required BIOS drivers in order to set the MotherBoard to the right Bios Version. However, even if that is the problem, why won't the computer recognize the processor as an XP-3200 333FSB? Why is it seen as "Unknown, 1.2 Ghz"?
Help needed. ASAP.
