Ecs mcp61pm am dual core am2 motherboard compatible CPUs

Hello,

I have a ECS MCP61PM-AM AM2 Motherboard. I currenty have a AMD 64X2 4000+ 2.1Ghz CPU installed. I just tried to install an AMD 64X2 5600+ 2.9 Ghz and my system went nuts.

Now, after VERY EXTENSIVE research, I've discovered that the 5600+, although advertised as an AM2 socket, is actually an "AM2+" socket.
Grrrrrrrrrrrrr...!!!

Which "AVAILABLE" AMD 64 X2 CPU's are compatible with my motherboard?

  1. Thats weird because according to the specs for the board it should work did you try updating the bios if there is one.
  2. Theoretically AM2+ and AM3 processors are compatible with AM2 socket. But there are other limitations like bios support and chipset support. Like SAAIELLO said, update your bios.
  3. I updated my BIOS and I'm still getting a system freeze, but only with the new CPU, after boot, after windows vista loads.

    Is this related to a Media Center problem?
    IF so, what's the fix?
