Ok, slightly odd problem, have a mobo bought last year, cpu bought this year ( old cpu now defunct ), old mobo is abit IC7G, new cpu is a prescott 3.2ghz.

Apparently I have to update the BIOS to enable the new CPU to work, does the CPU need to be removed to do this? ( its currently installed ), and if attempted to start just gets to the CPU detect section of the BIOS boot and just bugs out.

I havn't messed with BIOS updates much at all, just wondering how do I actually go about it?
Not my comp, but any help would be appreciated.

Hi ECA

The CPU doesn't need to be removed. The easiest way to perform a BIOS update is to use a Windows-based system, but as this isn't an option your best bet may be to use another computer and create a book disk with the BIOS update on. The instructions provided with the BIOS download should detail how to make the disk and perform the update.

Kind Regards

P.S. ABIT have a guide on how to do everything.
