Last December obtained a very good deal on a FX-8150 processor replacing a FX-4100 and upgraded the bios. No ill effects except since then, I've been unable to listen to any on-line music stations. I know that these station connections are ok as they play on my laptop and another desktop.

Thank you

You may need to re-install a driver for the radio stations to work. These are typically on the mobo makers website. If that doesn't work I'd contact the mobo maker about the BIOS update. The CPU upgrade would not have any influence on the radio stations.

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

So, is it better to uninstall the old driver first before installing a newer one OR is it ok just to install the newer driver?

Thank you

YES remove the old driver and then install the newest.
