"This Cpu is not supported by this model" Tags: CPUs Windows 7 Last response: January 26, 2013 4:58 PM in CPUs Share Pawchii January 25, 2013 3:18:25 PM Hello, I recently put together my very first PC Gaming Build & got this message when I booted it up. "This Cpu is not supported by this model" 550w Power Supply ASUS MICRO ATX Mobo & AMD Phenom II x4 CPU Windows 7 Home Premium I have run Windows 7 anyways and it is installing as I type. Just wondering does it really even matter? with all the other posts saying it works fine anyways I don't really care unless the computer just completely dies on me which i don't think will happen. But anyways, Is it really much of a deal?

The fact that you can boot means you have a good chance to flash it. The bios will be found on the Asus site and if you can flash with ez flash from within the bios it is the safest way to do it. | Report abuse Reply to nukemaster Pawchii January 25, 2013 3:48:22 PM I will check ASUS shortly once I get the network up on the system. I just go there an update from the site I assume? | Report abuse Reply to Pawchii Related ressources "This CPU is not supported by the model . - Forum Problem with mobo's and processor's watts - Forum Asus M2N-E and Phenom 9950 BE (125w) - Worth It? - Forum Pentium 4 upgrade to core 2 duo with chip - Forum Black screen - Forum Ask the community Publish nukemaster CPUs Authority Windows 7 Expert January 25, 2013 6:42:00 PM Under downloads/other they should have a bios update.

What is the exact model number of the board? I downlaoded the update for my specific motherboard but it did no good I mean this is perfectly okay i can cope with having to press f1 everytime but... This prohibits me from pressing F8 upon reboot to open the safe mode options | Report abuse Reply to Pawchii nukemaster CPUs Authority Windows 7 Expert January 26, 2013 4:58:43 PM what is the model number of the board please? Numbers look like M5A88-M, M5A97 or similar and should be written on the board. | Report abuse Reply to nukemaster Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>"This Cpu is not supported by this model"> Related ressources: ForumQ6600 and ECS 671T-M ForumWill this PSU be enough?
