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?

You may need a bios update.

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.

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?

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

what is the model number of the board please? Numbers look like M5A88-M, M5A97 or similar and should be written on the board.
