Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard

1 Answer

AMD Athlon 64x2 can't install, help!

Hi everyone, I have a problem which may or may not be solvable but I thought it'd be worth asking here.
I am totally new to this so please be as simple as you can in any replies and if need be talk to me like a complete idiot.

I've been given a AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core 6000+ AM2 blah blah blah processor and wanted to stick it in my setup if possible which on inspection has a M2N-MX motherboard. Now I thought It'd be simple just taking out the old CPU and putting in the new one but alas - it didn't work, instead I just got a message on boot up saying "NO SUPPORT CPU" and then it turned itself off after 15 seconds, after a bit of investigating on ASUS's website I found I could upgrade the BIOS that would solve this problem, I did - and still the same result.

So does anyone know a way around this? Or are they just not going to work together?
I don't know enough about these things to go any further and was wondering if anyone could help please?

Any help would make me very happy,
thanks in advance folks,

Re: AMD Athlon 64x2 can't install, help!

Which version update did you do?
only after 0804 will work


My system may refuse to boot under AMD Althon64 x2 6000+ CPU (OPN :ADX6000IAA6CZ) with 2x DDRII-800 memory combination.
The same problem does not happen with other CPUs, nor would it happen with memory modules of any lower specifications.
How can I solve this problem?
Please kindly update motherboard BIOS to version 0406 or later to resolve this problem.
BIOS 0406 can be downloaded form the link below:

I'm afraid not. Foxconn 6100M2MA-RS2H has an AM2 Socket that only supports the following processors: AMD Sempron, Athlon 64,Athlon 64x2,Athlon 64FX. Phenom processors support AM2+ and AM3 socket motherboards. Hope this helps. Any vote will be appreciated. Thank you :)

I have a Lenovo 3000I have a Lenovo 3000 J115 7387-A32, I replaced the AMD athlon 64x2 Dual-Core 3600+ with a AMD Athlon X2 5000+ 3200mhz Scoket AM2+ CPU, when I turn on the computer the fan in the power...

I think the first thing to do is go back to the cpu Fan and check the plug and make sure you are on the pins as should be make sure that there isn't any Bent pins . Continue on to the next fan in question.If not then I would not continue Running this machine Until I had the fan problem fixed. It doesn't take long to mess things up. I am surprised that it will run . I would like to have faith in the hardware monitor to propely shut it down.then I would go to the power source Plug on the motherBoard . Check that it is connected good and try it for a short run on then off to make sure that the fans are running like they are supposed to.

If he has changed motherboard then he will most likely need to reinstall xp/vista as the chipset drivers will be different for it.

What mb/cpu did he have before?
