Hi

Asus told me that if there A7N8X hasn't got the bios version for sempron support it will simply not boot. Does anyone know if this is the case? I always thought it would boot just report the wrong processor, but if it wont boot it means placing an athlon XP on to install the latest bios before using the sempron. Anyone think it will be unbootable?

Thanks

Hi Dave89,

I just bought an ASUS A7N8X-X and Sempron 2400+

the computer will boot. I also updated the bios and now it shows the cpu as a sempron processor.
