Hey there, I got a K8NXP SLi MoBo @ an AMD 4400 x2 the bios is version f6 and i've downloaded the f11 patch and run the autoexec and then restarded and loaded optimised defaults but it still says that the CPU is a an AMD hammer family processor - model unknown.

Am I doing something wrong.... I really dont think I updated correctly... does anyone have idiot proof instructions? .... Or another option?

Appreciate any help

It means his mainboard does not support ACPI power features, or that person did not install their chipset drivers correctly for whicher mainboard they have their CPU installed on.

It has nothing to do with BIOS updates in their case (excluding that their BIOS shows the CPU model incorrectly)... the shutdown thing is something else entirely unrelated.

Do you need to jumper or disable a BIOS write protect to update the BIOS ?
Did you run the FLASH tool ?

Try a "DIR /A/S" from the C:> prompt.
Find the COM / EXE file, then run it, with "<name of exe.exe> -?" with the [space][minus][questionmark] after the name.

Most console applications give a help screen if you do this.
