Hello,
Ok... I feel like a freaking Moron!!
I can see all the info on unlocking my Sempron 140\'s 2nd core.... but everything I click on sends me to more questions!!!! UGH!!!

Can someone PLEASE tell me how to UNLOCK my AMD Sempron 140 Second Core using GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H MOTHERBOARD?

I did it myself 3 years ago when I built this computer but had to reformat and add new HD and other things and for the life of me I cant remember how I did it!! PLEASE HELP!!!

Best solution

Hi

I don't see ACC control for your motherboard. Are you sure it can unlock CPU's?

What you need to do is enter BIOS and Look for your ACC setting, change it to auto, make sure you change EC FIRMWARE to HYBRID, then reboot. If it doesn't work you may need to bump up the CPU voltage (don't go over 1.4 unless you are using an aftermarket cooler though) You can run PRIME95 for at least 10 hours to stress test your cpu and see if it is stable with two cores.

Good Luck!

Hi Fungi,

Yes, I'm sure it can unlock it because I did it 3 yrs ago but I also had CPU box and info in front of me. i built this for a friend and she has since lost that box and info...

I will give your instructions a try and we'll see what happens..??

Thanks for your quick response in this matter!! ;-)
