    Hello everyone. I just upgraded the CPU listed to an Athlon 64 x2 4200+. According to the website for my motherboard, as long as I'm running BIOS revision 20, I can use this chip. I am. But my computer will not post after new CPU installation. I'm updating my BIOS to the latest revision currently in hopes that will fix things. Any suggestions on what else I can do? Thanks.

    Ah, scratch that. I updated the BIOS, cleared the CMOS, and it boots like a charm. YEEHAW, dual core. I can play games at minimum settings now..
