...first of all my regards to all people here, asking question and answering them.
I have myself a little problem. I own celsius m460, with d2608-a1 mainboard.
The machine originally came with e8300 cpu, but recently a got myself q9550 cpu.
The problem is that, upon installation of cpu (q9550-which is officially supported), on startup i get something
like "no suitable microcode" error - cant remember exactly.
System boots on, but fans are spinning like crazy, and I am forced to turn the computer of,
because i don't wont to risk damaging my PC.
I did upgrade bios to the most recent version (6.00.1.12), but the results were the same.
Q9550 cpu has the following specs:
Processor Number: Q9550
# of Cores: 4
# of Threads: 4
Clock Speed: 2.83 GHz
L2 Cache: 12 MB
Bus/Core Ratio: 8.5
FSB Speed: 1333 MHz
Instruction Set: 64-bit
Lithography: 45 nm
Max TDP: 95 W
VID Voltage Range: 0.8500V-1.3625V
Processor core: Yorkfield
SLB8V (Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550)
I`ve read that there is some "service bios" that could, maby, solve my problem, but cant find it to download.
I hope that you can help me. Thanks in advance for your time and trouble.
