I have a MSI K7 Master motherboard, dual MP 2000+, a little over a year old, with recently flashed bios. All was working well, but one processor got damaged (prob my fault), and I replaced it with a new one.

Doesn't work.

Either MP 2000+ may be used alone, but together I get an error message during boot that their frequency is not matched. The boot process then stops.

OPN older processor -- AMP2000DMS3C
OPN new processor -- AMSN2000DUT3C

Solvable problem? Or do I just have to toss the older processor, even though it's still perfectly good?

Thanks,
Sam George
