Hey everybody!

I bought a computer a few weeks ago and it has an Athlon XP 2400+ in a ASUS motherboard. I use Windows XP Home Edition. I had to reinstall the OS a few days ago because I was having problems with Windows . After this, when I open the Device Manager, it shows "AMD Athlon(XP) 2400+" with a exclamation in its icon. I think it happens because there's no driver installed to this processor. But I'm not sure about it. And there is a update called "Advanced Micro Devices Processor Update" in I couldn't install this. I think I have to install the driver to do it. I searched at Google and about a "Athlon XP driver", but I couldn't find. Anyone could help me?

Installing a processor-driver is NOT required(nor does it do anything) unless you have a mobile processor(and you're running it in a Laptop) or an Athlon 64

Ivan - had the exact same problem in an asus a7n8x-e deluxe board.... turned out after running CPUID software I found that my L2 cache was registering as only 128 instead of the normal barton L2 of 512 - chek that out and let us know if that's the problem
