Default Re: need help with new opty 165

i just contacted AMD Support and they suggested me to reformat my computer since im upgrading from a singlecore processor to a double.
I need to know if this is will fix the problem for sure.
Unless their is another option available...

Ill wait for a reply for some time, if not ill just reformat and post results if any.

Download and install Service Pack 2 for XP. That should fix the problem.

i just re formatted my whole pc.
I did windows update and im up to date now.
Im pretty sure i have sp2...i think

And still no results.
The xp cd i have is a restore cd for emachines t6420. I got it from Best Buy.
I did full restore...it wiped out everything. I though it would work but nothing.

In device manager it shows both the opterons,but under computer it shows ACPI.

would you know if my motherboard is incompatible?

Are you sure? check task manager again, and see if there are two CPU graphs.

You could try slipstreaming SP2 onto another CD. This is legal (provided you already have XP)
