Hey guys and gals, ill round this up as fast as possible, but ive got a big problem, i have a feeling my CPU fried its self.
Easy way to explain is this, the other day i started playing GTA off steam, "all games and that ran fine" couples days later i woke up started playing all was well no problems, but that same morning i had a power outage electric went basicly. I started the PC up again, and went back into GTA, it was laggy.. real laggy, then i tested my other games, same thing massive FPS drops, its hit hard. At first i didnt know the problem, but after a day of fiddling around with my softwares and such, i found that i had a weird CPU instead of what it was meant to be, my CPU is supposed to be named "AMD athlon II x2 260", but now its a AMD engineering sample 1.6ghz. "This is checked via properties on the computer" *Hit start right click computer and hit properties", i also belarc checked, and SIW checked, and also BIOS checked, all showing the same thing. Anyone know what i should do? ive contacted support of the store i bought the pc from, they want me to take it in for repair. Basicly i want to know, whats this AMD engineering sample, ive heard rumors their faulty, supposed to be "retail" only, what should i do?, send it in for repairs?.
