I just got this amd barton 2500 and i'm runnin it on the asus a7n8x board.
The problem is that the damn motherboard wont recognize the cpu. It calls it Unknown CPU Type. Anyone know a way to fix that?

It may not be necessary. Is the system running stable? Does cpuid show it as barton 2500? You can try flashing your bios, but it may not do any good. I would first check asus website and see if any bios updates include the barton 2500.
