i just upgraded from a 2.8 celeron to 3.0 pentium R cpu. running xpsp3.
when the system boots it halts and shows " cpu overclock error and indicates that it supports C1E Bios"
my motherboard is P4M890-M7 SE
i normally just restore everything to defaults and disable boot floppy.
is there any other setting i need to adjust?
quite correct.it doesn't show cpu info post bootup.
i have checked system property and even run dxdiag
its still void.
That would confirm that your BIOS revision is too old for the CPU you have installed and support for it is not built in yet, or if you have the latest BIOS available already, the board simply may not support your new CPU. I would check for a BIOS update first though.
