Upgrading AM2+ CPU to AM3 on AM2+ motherboard Tags: Gigabyte Sempron CPUs Motherboards Last response: December 25, 2009 11:26 PM in Motherboards Share nikiakbar December 25, 2009 10:20:45 PM Hi guys, I'm having problem with CPU upgrade. Upgrading from Sempron (AM2+) to Phenom II X2 545 (AM3). This should work but It won't work on me. Then I updated the BIOS to version 9 (F9) from version 7. And still won't work. Did i missed something? Thank you.
