Asus M4A89GTD PRO. How do you get your specs to be below your posts?

Go to the CPU support page for your motherboard and see what bios is needed in order to support your Phenom CPU. If your CPU is on that page, upgrade to that bios (might as well get the latest) with your X2 installed. Then swap to the Phenom:

And go to User CP and edit your "System Specs":

Of course it could be something else, but until you update the bios you won't be able to rule it out. It was a known issue with early generations, you needed a bios update to run the X6.

I've done this already. I have BIOS 1702 (According to CPU-Z), 1090T needs 1301. But I sent it back and the CPU isn't faulty.

Try posting with just 1 stick of ram. And when you clr bios (with jumper), or remove the battery, make sure the system is not plugged into the wall. Then press the power button to discharge any residual power. Then try booting (again with just one stick, then the other if the first stick does not work).

I updated my BIOS and it works perfectly fine. I understand you guys are probably pissed I didn't do it in the first place, but the thing is I still don't understand why my BIOS couldn't understand it. Oh well, the important part is that my problem is solved and the Phenom works perfectly fine
