    I recently got the AMD Phenom II X3 710 (2.6GHz) which is an AM3 processor and I'm using it on an AM2/AM2+ motherboard. I'm sure some of you who have this CPU have noticed the "AMD Processor model unknown" in system properties or in computer.

    Now it can be changed in the registry very easily, except for two sections (which is where system properties in the WEI is pulled), but all you have to do is give yourself "permissions" to modify those registry keys. However, once you reboot it reverts back to normal.

    (1) How can you prevent Vista from reverting back after reboot?

    (2) If there is no BIOS update available for a motherboard like mine (ECS GeForce 7050M-M V2.0), is there a way to change it so the PC displays "AMD Phenom II X3 710" and not "AMD Processor model unknown"?

    Any help is appreciated!

    Is that processor on your motherboards compatibility list?

    sounds like it might be BIOS update time

    I saw in another thread you were trying to unlock the 4th core, that'll do it too

    Hi

    The latest bios is 09/01/05, they didn'd say nothing about support to new CPUs.

    You should e-mail ECS and ask if they plan to give support to your CPU, or for a bios to support it.

    Now, about unlocking the extra core, only AMD boards with SB750 have the ACC, needed to activate the extra core with proper bios.

    Resuming, time to upgrate board too.:D

    Be well...

    There are some boards that are able to unlock that 4th core
    ie: Asrock

    Yeah, I've already emailed them, but am still waiting. How about the registry method? Possible to edit some registry keys without having Vista revert back to the originals?

    I'm afraid in that matter I can't help you, but it's just naming, will do nothing, performance wise.
