As your cpu does not support that set, you will need to find a cpu that incorporates that instruction set ,and is compatible with your motherboard

good luck

I have a compaq presario sr1230nx,it has the amd athlon XP pcu which I think is a socket 462. anyways Im trying to install an AutoCad program,but it says I need a CPU that is SSE2 compliant. is there...


Access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and search for "Everest Home" software.

Download and install this _free_ software.

When you run it, click the 'CPU' tab, and you'll get a full list of what "extensions", such as SSE or SSE2, that are supported by your CPU.

Browse the AMD web-site ( http://www.amd.com ) to look for an Athlon-series CPU that _does_ have the SSE2 extensions. Buy that CPU, and install it into your computer.

Processor doesn't support SSE instruction set,how can I fix this problem ?


There is nothing you can do.
Your CPU either does or does not have these.
I dont see what your problem is, this PC uses a pentium 4 3.4ghz CPU. and it DOES support SSE2 extensions.
Here is some information about SSE http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SSE2

I cannot install my autocad 2010 because it says that my processor is not sse2 compliant. is there a way to install it for free?


Hi

I'm sorry you can not use the program with your old computer, the requirements are.

  • Intel® Pentium® 4 or AMD Athlon® dual-core processor, 1.6 GHz or higher with SSE2 technology
  • 2 GB RAM

If your processor does not have SSe2 technology support, it is too old to run the program, buy a new machine. Or use a older version of autocad. your computer must be around 5 or 10 years old or more. SSE2 has been around since 2003.

SSE2 CPU Support Requirement for AutoCAD 2010 I will try to not geek out and confuse you on this post. With AutoCAD 2010 there is an AutoCAD 2010 System Requirement to have a CPU (essentially the computer’s brain) with SSE2 support. SSE2 is an Intel CPU instruction set (SIMD Extension 2) which is essentially technology to replace the old MMX extensions which are half as slow in many data and math operations. Most current systems will support SSE2 except an old AMD CPU system over 6 years old. AMD Opteron, Athlon 64 both support SSE2 and have since 2003.

So why SSE2 requirement in AutoCAD 2010:

In developing software there is a limit on how old of technology you can effectively support without impacting current hardware and software users. In the case of AutoCAD 2010 adding the SSE2 requirement this increases performance for customers using current hardware. Many areas improve in AutoCAD such as OSNAPs.
I said I would not geek out so I will not go into details on floats, floating point, and registers. Your experience may vary but the change was made for some performance benefit of current hardware.

Bottom Line: Increasing performance is a good thing!

End Quote.

Trying to load elements of CS3 and get error ERROR ''NEED SUPPORT FOR CPU EXTENSION SSE2''


Hi,

Unfortunately, there isn't much you can do about this. Your processor is quite old, and as a result doesn't come with SSE2 built in, which is an instruction set that helps the CPU process data at a faster rate.

Your only option is to purchase a CPU that has SSE2 built in for you to be able to use that program.

Hope I clarified things

SSE2 instruction set


Use CPUID (CPU-Z) so you'll know the specification of your cpu. This will include all the instruction set of your cpu.

Installing adobe premiere elements 7


SSE2 instruction set is a new set of instructions that has been built into the processor chips usually to enhance the performance of the computer. If you are using an older computer/processor, (possibly manufactured before 2001, when the SSE2 was introduced) you may not be able to install the applications that require the SSE2 instruction set on your computer.
