It's a brand new CPU that's only been out for a few months... over the last 5 years all AMD CPU's have had the same socket, they aren't like Intel in that respect. I understand you don't get my logic now can we please get back to the issue.
edit: the store is UMART, and in Australia and yes the staff as are just as incompetent as I am apparently smile.gif


Did you try clearing the CMOS with the CMOS jumper on the board? It's a long shot - but it may fix the restarting issue.

Yes - but if you buy a FX 6100 and you are not walking out with a "2 Year old computer" lmao. Your walking away with new computer parts but the hardware was released less than a year ago. The guy only needed a basic computer and the FX 6100 would more than fit a basic users needs.

Yeah I would have preferred a quad core. I don't think the performance is that great in these new APU's from what I've heard.

FM2 processors where just released and they have even better performance. Graphics performance got a considerable boost as well. From what i've heard these FM2 processors are built w/ Piledriver cores.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113280


FM1 processors don't have horrible performance - in fact they're more than enough for the general user. They're better than Pentium 4's and Athlon 64's tongue.gif I just build my brother's dad a FM1 A6 3650 build a couple months ago for $300 and he gave me $150 after a week of using it because it was so much faster than any computer he had ever had and it came bloatware free. He could also play games like CS:S, TF2, and even Dirt2 without issues.

FM2 will not work in FM1 boards and FM1 will not work in FM2 boards despite them both having A55 and A75 chipsets.

However, to fix your problem, you have to clean all drivers from your old motherboards. You can't just install a new mobo and expect the OS to work. You are explaining the exact thing I would expect to happen by changing mobo's and CPU without reinstalling Windows.

It might be "illegal" in your eyes, but I'm not getting paid so I say it's my "personal use"... Not that Microsoft would ever care or try to sue. Because it would be a waste of their time.

So anyway, back to the issue, how do I go about "Cleaning" the drivers, and also can I upgrade from 32bit windows 7 to 64bit windows 7?

Do I just uninstall all drivers from the Device Manager window? and can I install the new chipset drivers while plugged into the old motherboard?


While it was OK for me to reinstall windows on the accounts PC, he won't like or probably even let me do his computer because it is central to the whole operation.

Run driver sweeper to wipe the drivers then install the drivers for the new board.


Or an even better alternative would be too find his Windows 7 key, Burn a Windows 7 .ISO, reinstall Windows 7 using that key. As far as I know you can legally download the Windows 7 .ISO off of your dreamspark account and use HIS windows code for a re-install so long as he is using it. After that install the drivers for the new board. I'll take a Windows 8 64BIT code btw lol tongue.gif My Dreamspark doesn't work when I am not currently enrolled >.>

Thanks buddy. Burning a copy using his disk and Njoy Nlite nCopy or whatever it's called would still be just the same as reformatting yeah, he needs to keep all his files and installed programs. Which is why I thought if I can't upgrade then cloning the HDD might be the best bet.

Wow, some people in this thread are getting really worked up. Just calm down and try to help the guy out. I would try clean installs on all computers

I would back up all of his info and do a wipe - I'd just personally prefer this method because it ensures all old drivers are gone and only the new ones are installed. You may also inform him to run anti-virus, ccleaner and change his MSCONFIG startup items on a regular basis.

Yeah, I would as well but I'm not sure he'll go for it. I'll just try cloning it to a SSD using ghost and take out 4gb of ram and sell it on ebay or something, stick it in one of the other pc;s. Thanks everyone
