Laptop CPU "unknown"

Last response: in CPUs

Hey guys, so I've a rather small question today.

I recently upgraded my laptop from an AMD V140 to an AMD P650. It's running great, no problems whatsoever.

But when I load CPU-Z, it can't recognize the CPU. It just says processor name unknown. All other information is correct, including clock speed, TDP, cores, etc...

Is this a problem that I do not know of? And how can I fix it?

It's actually posing some problems as the softwares that analyze my PC before I install some programs can't recognize/name the CPU, therefore I'll have to install and just test the programs myself to see if it runs, and this is very problematic, if not wasteful if I cannot use the programs I buy.

Any clue is appreciated, thanks!

Is there a BIOS you can update?

Already at my max. The CPU works fine, the laptop just can't name it :(

Not a lot you can do, if the BIOS does not have up to date CPU ID codes.
