  1. Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

    If your mobo is this version, sorry, but the processor that you have isn't supported.

    Next time, check 1st the CPU supported list of the mobo.

    SO, What version do you have?
  2. i have ver 1.0
  3. GA-MA74GM-S2 (rev. 1.x)
    AMD 740G + SB700 Chipset
    Supports AMD Phenom X4/ Athlon X2 processors*
    Solid capacitors design in CPU VRM

  5. This gets a bit dicey - there are five revisions of that board available, and all different results (but the good news is that four of the five do offer support!) - here's where to find your rev#:

    Rev 1.x doesnt support it; support list here:

    Rev 2.0 needs BIOS 'FC'; support list here:
    BIOS available here:

    Rev 3.0 needs BIOS F3; support list here:
    BIOS here:

    Rev 4.0 needs BIOS FA; support list here:
    BIOS here:

    and Rev 4.1 needs BIOS FB; support list here:
    BIOS here:
    (FB should have been the 'as shipped' BIOS, as it's the only one...)
  6. Hi again. Like I said in the 1st reply the version 1.X don't support the X2 II 550. Sorry, but always you need check the CPU supported list before buy the processor.
  7. You can pick up a current replacement for $55USD:
    Or, even cheaper ($48USD), a GA-M61PME-S2P, which also supports the 550:
  8. ^+1, yea. You can re-sell your current mobo an get a new mobo that support your new X2 II 550 processor.
