Did you upgrade an existing home-built system, or it this a pre-built system from a PC manufacturer? Pre-built systems usually have processor-specific BIOSes in them that will only allow certain upgrades approved by the manufacturer. Home built systems where you purchase the mainboard yourself have a wider range of processor options written into the BIOS to allow for wider compatibility. The error message is saying that the BIOS does not recognize the CPU code from the specific processor you installed. It has nothing to do with the OS.
It is very likely that you simply do not have the right BIOS setup for the new processor. You will likely have to flash all your bios to get the new processor to both be recognized and to be able to recognize components on the motherboard. That is quite a jump in technology and it may be that the motherboard simply will not support the new processor period. In that case, be VERY careful buying your new board and make sure it specifically supports your processor. Sorry I could not be more help!
Install the bootable BIOS upgrade disk which you previously created
to do the original flash upgrade into drive A: and restart the system.
If the update failed because you used the wrong BIOS update you should
get the correct one and repeat this step. When the computer reboots
there will most likely be no video prompts, however you can monitor this
procedure using the floppy drive light and the PC speaker. When the PC
speaker beeps and the floppy drive light is lit it means that it is
currently copying the new BIOS onto the motherboard.
When the floppy drive light goes off and the PC speaker beeps (twice
in most cases) the recovery should be complete. During the update
procedure there might be pauses that looks like your computer is doing
nothing, if so be sure to wait at least a minute to make sure the update
is complete. When you are sure the BIOS update is complete and there is
no more activity, power off the computer.
Change the jumper you changed before back into the original position so the computer can operate normally.
When you turn your computer back on your BIOS will be functional and you should be able to use your computer normally again.
Make sure you set the primary graphics in the bios to pic-e and you will likely have to upgrade your power supply as this card requires at least a 400 watt you pc came with a 285 watt not near enough power for this video card and could be your problem
Flashing BIOS from Windows can be problematic. It's usually best to boot from a removable disk and flash from DOS. You can make a bootable floppy using Windows XP if you have a floppy disk drive. Also, your problem may not be a BIOS limitation, it may be a configuration setting in BIOS such as Clock Speed or a Multiplier. Double check those before trying to flash.
pls check the RAM try re installing the RAM or try replacing them , may be it is a co incedent u thought it as a bios update failure pls check and reply back with mother board complete model number and manufacturer with processor details
