Ok, so heres the deal. I Bought a brand new processor (3.3ghz Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition) and a new power supply (500 watts). I went home and installed my new PSU and CPU, but when I turned it on, I get this message (or something along the lines of) ERROR: Installed processor not compatible. System will shut down in 5 seconds. Yup. :smileysad: My computer is a HP p6633w, and here are the specs.
Foxconn 2ab1 motherboard
ATI Radeon HD 5770 1gb gddr5
5gb ddr3 1333 ram
640 gb hard drive
500 watt power supply
AMI bios 6.04
So, I need help to make it work. I think I have a processor with too high of a watt usage or something or my bios is outdated for the new processors. Please help.....
If you have any questions please ask. I really want this to work
Solved! Go to Solution.
