BIOS: Pheonix Tech
Version: R01-B0 (Dated 03/31/2009 - latest I can find on Acer's site)
Socket AM2 (940)
AMD Athlon 2650e <- POS
Windows 7 Pro x64
NVIDIA GeForce 8200 (integrated)
Ive been reading and I though a AMD Athlon II X2 240e would be perfect, but its not. The cool thing is the company I ordered it from sent the wrong one and sent me the 245e the first time, so I was able to try both. If there is anything I need to do or try, please let me know. I am wanting to upgrade to 2.8mhz or better! Any other opinions on processors would be outstanding.
Forgot to include that I figured I could install the processor, then reboot using the windows 7 CD and do a "repair" to have the correct driver installed, but when I try those 2 processors i listed above, the damn screen dont even come on.
