hi there i just installed a new chip and never had any problems before like this. I did do some research and all i kept finding the same thing its your videocard, but I also noticed that everyone that had the same chip as me or an x2 was having the same problems with out any answers. Here is my lay out i know its not the greats but it works for me since all i use it for is to play world of warcraft and Counter-strike source.

not sure what to do but im going to place my old chip in for the time i guess until i can figure something out, oh btw i updated the bios of my motherboard to the newest one also and no changes. Also the temp os fine its running at 46c/114.5f and the motherboard is running at 41c/105.5f so i know its not over heating. PLEASE HELP lol

What did you uprgrade from? Did you clear the Bios? Do have the AMD dual core patch driver running? Is everything running at the right specs? Did you try with and without cool and quiet? Did you try a fresh install of windows?

November 5, 2008 4:19:17 AM

well i upgraded from Sempron 3800+, and yes i cleared it (bios), i just got the patch for the AMD dual core. As far as specs i believe i have them right, and the cool and quiet i took off only thing i haven't done is a fresh install of windows. As far as right specs what am i looking for, the voltage per is 1.400v with a frequency of 3200MHz each. And im still having the same problem, im going to try a fresh install tomorrow of windows but i don't see that being the problem.

Install Speedfan and check core temp idle and under load. What PSU, make/model?

Windows fresh installs cure many things.
November 5, 2008 10:23:18 AM

a reinstall is likely needed to make the second core operate in windows.

+1 for a new fresh install of OS, especially going from single to dual core.

Oh wasn't there some article i seem to recall a week or two ago about some hyperthreading or something being removed from new BIOS's etc due to IP being used without permission. Just a stab in the dark on this though and i forget what was being removed. Maybe someone else can remember and say if it's relevant.

k re-installed winxp, repatched it, and some programs work fine while others still don't as far as games, the internet has it times were it takes forever but that natural i would think, and as far world or warcraft it still spikes which kills my frame rate, going to be installing my old chip until things are more stable i guess or until i can figure it out with the help of others what the problem is.

update your bios
November 6, 2008 12:49:34 AM

lol badtrip i did update it if you would have read the post lol.
November 6, 2008 11:23:32 AM

Did you check core temps under load? If it works with old CPU, either new CPU has a defect, or it could be your PSU as new CPU uses more power than the old. If still faulty with old CPU, could be HD giving read errors and making Windows 'hang'.

hmm if your net is acting wierd, why would you test gaming performance with wow??

run 3dmark06 or something and compare the cpu score with other 6400+ owners....
