AMD Turion 64x2 Processor Upgrade Problem

\015 I'm using Acer Aspire 5052 with Turion 64x2 1.6GHz (which I Upgrade myself, before this it was single core Turion 64 2.2GHz), 4 GB Corsair For Gaming Ram, Win Vista Ultimate which i just install, before this it use XP..\015\012I'm wondering why can't I Upgrade my processor to 2.0 GHz..I've tried and install it once and when I turn my laptop on, the processor fan run and after a few seconds there's a 'beep' and it turn off.. and now I'm stuck with this only last choice which is 1.6 GHz.. I heard that there's a limit that has been set by acer for the processor.. Is it the bios?\015

Answers :

Yes it's the BIOS, which holds a list of supported CPUs (with the right min/max settings for Vcore, FSB, multiplier (or HyperTransport as it's called for AMD chips), etc.). When you put in a newer unrecognized CPU, it either runs at a failsafe (very slow) setting or won't boot at all.

\015\012The only solution is to flash a newer BIOS version which supports the CPU. I searched the Acer website and found the newest BIOS version 3315 (dated 2008-12, which is pretty new imho), which you can download (including the required flash software) here: http://global-download.acer.com/GDFiles/BIOS/BIOS/BIOS_3315.zip?acerid=633643256207419447&Step1=Notebook&Step2=Aspire&Step3=Aspire 5050&OS=V10&LC=nl&SC=EMEA_18

\015\012Perhaps you already have this BIOS version and I'm not sure wether your new CPU is supported by this BIOS, but you might give it a try.
\015\012
\015\012Please note that flashing your BIOS might fail & brick the laptop and is at your own risk, but when following the instructions carefully, it's only a very small chance things go wrong. I've done it a dozen times without any problem ...
