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!
