Urgent help needed!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I am building an older rih for a friend using some old parts of mine out of my pc as I am upgrading soon. It is all set up and boots fine.

The issue is that the bios on the mobo doesnt recognise the E8400 cpu. It needs a bios update to run it properly. However it does run at a reduced speed. Fine. No worries. Apart from it will crash half way into installing windows.

Will this purely be a cpu/bios issue or something else. I will be flashing the bios but if it still crashes after that I will be at a loss as to what this could be.

Cheers!

just update the bios and see how it goes. if it still doesnt work then it might be that the motherboard simply doesnt support that CPU
