For the M5a97 AM3+ board. Will this recognize it in order for a bios update? Thanks. I seen someone do it for an MSI 970 and it passed, even though it wasn't listed on the their CPU specifications site.
So I'm guessing it would be the motherboard that's bad? Figures. I hear alot of reviews of people getting bad mobos with this one. Oh well. I'll just see when the CPU gets here. If it doesn't come up again, I'll just RMA everything, Including CPU to make sure.
Sosfm, I looked it up and thought I had the EVO version. And I looked it up and 0901 was the revised version. I'm guessing this board is bad. Happened to my A8n SLI board back in 2006 than I replaced that with the A8n-32 SLI. Happened to me again. Oh well. Gonna' RMA it for a replacement. Thinking about RMAing the CPU and ram as well. What do you think?
You tried and didn't work ? Or is just a gues ? I don't understand something , why you buy a 100$ mobo and a 30$ Sempron ?
Because I thought I had the EVO version of the board, but turns out it was the regular. Damn. I'm gonna' RMA the board and CPU ( FX processor ) just to make sure. I know for sure it's the mobo. I've had a mobo do this to me before. Everything was good, but once I have that mobo, It'd do the same exact thing. Argh.
Quick update. Got all the RMA parts and you know what? IT WORKS! The bad side is I don't have Windows 7 right now, because the disc I have is scuffed up. The funny thing is when I use my FX 4100 only ram dimm can be read, but when I pop in my sempron 130, ALL discs read and I get no blue screens or errors. Weird. Do you think it's because of the BIOS?
