Hello, i have a newly built core i3 machine with a h55 gagbyte mb and it does not recognize the processor under the hardware devices menu. I am getting yellow ?s. No driver loaded. I tried to load the gagabyte drivers and that did not help.

I reloaded an old version of XP to start with then updated two or three times after reboots each time, to SP3. I did not do the INF Update.

Let me know if the INF update does the trick.

No that didn't seem to do it. Let me back up a little. Under device manager, unknown devices, details, i am seeing: ACPI\Genuineintel_-_x86_Family_6_Model_37\_0 and then the exact same thing for three other devices ending in \_1,\_2, and \_3. Is that my processor it can't identify? I don't see a processor anywhere on the list. Sorry, obviously my 1st time at this.

Does your motherboard properly identify the processor?
