hey another prob, my Mobo wont read my CPU as a AMD Sempron 3100+ which it is, i have had the bios updated and everything, even AMD could help me on this one, any advice??? cos it is really getting on my nerves!
it says Model-Unknown, and not only in CPU-Z but in everything i try, the only thing is that Windows game advisor reads it as a AMD Athlon not sempron, but everything else says Model-Unknown. It says my speed is 1800 MHz, i used to have a Pentium 4 2.6 GHZ, but i have checked benchmarking and they say my 3100+ is slightly faster than my original pentium 4.
1800mhz sounds about right for your Sempron. AMD procs have low clock speeds it's just the way they are. This guy should be a little faster than your old Pentium. I wouldn't worry about it too much, I personally wouldn't care as long as games play as they should.
What version of Windows are you using, it's XP right? DO you have all the updates installed for it?
