Ok I just installed a new AMD Phenom ii x4 965 and my computer doesn't seem to recognize it and also when I am trying to run a MMO it keeps telling me that i dont have enough video memory and then i get an error message. I'm very new to the whole CPU install process and I dont understand how to update BIOS if thats what I need to do so sorry for my incompetence on this issue. Also when I try and run CPU-Z it crashes and send my comps screen to a gray and black line screen.
My comp setup
Windows 7 64 bit
AMD phenom ii x4 965 <--- this is what im having issues with switched from a AMD Phenom 9600
500W corsair PSU
msinfo32 shows BIOS at 7B3G1P04 which is default BIOS from my original CPU
my mobo shows AM2+ capable as well on the manufacturers website sorry i cant provide this mobo model atm since CPU-Z keeps crahing
ok guys update on mobo= RS780M03G1
