MB/CPU incompatibility due to bios discrepancy? Tags: Chipsets BIOS Compatibility CPUs Motherboards Last response: August 29, 2009 8:39 PM in Motherboards Share docfeelgood August 29, 2009 8:07:02 PM Hey guys, I currently have an Asrock Alive Nf6G-Vsta mobo with an athlon64 3800. http://www.asrock.com/MB/overview.asp?Model=ALiveNF6G-V... I purchased an Athlon II x2 245 today thinking it was compatible, somewhere along the line i thought i had this board which is almost spot on identical. Alive Nf6G -GLan http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=ALiveNF6G-G... However, the latter board is AM3 compatible while the one i have (VSTA) isnt. Given the very close resemblance, would there be an aftermarket bios solution for this...is there ANYTHING i can do to make my new, more powerful CPU run on my mb?
