    Hello

    I don't know if i'm posting this on the right place, but please warm me if i am!

    So here is my problem, a couple of months i got a motherboard to do a upgrade on my system but the processor that i currently got isn't fully supported by the motherboard. My current specs are:

    Gigabyte - GA-G41MT-S2PT
    Pentium D 830 3.00Ghz


    The computer runs fine, until i try to use about 80% of the 2ยบ core of the processor, then it locks up until i restart it!!

    I did a little research on the subject and i found that it's possible to add intructions to the motherboard so that it can run properly.I found a program CBROM that can edit and add CPUCODE on my bios to add support for the cpu, but when i try to run it on my bios file by running "CBROM32_198.exe 41MTS2PT.bin /d" it outputs only this:


    ******** 41MTS2PT.BIN BIOS component ********

    No. Item-Name Original-Size Compressed-Size Original-File-Name
    ================================================================================
    0. System BIOS 400040h(4096.06K)100136h(1024.30K)

    Total compress code space = 100136h(1152.30K)
    Total compressed code size = 100136h(1024.30K)
    Remain compress code space = 00000h(0.00K)

    ** Micro Code Information **
    Update ID CPUID | Update ID CPUID | Update ID CPUID | Update ID CPUID

    ------------------+--------------------+--------------------+-------------------

    I know when searching for the problem i mostly found topics dated back to 2007/2008/2009, so i hope i can get a few advice from you guys!
    I need help to find another method or program to solve this problem so if you could help me i would be greatly apreeciated!

    Any link or information you guys might need just ask!

    Thanks

    If you check the CPU support list, you can see the cpu is not supported, but all the others Pentiums D are, so i think that it's possible to add support for the cpu in this motherboard.

    I didn't already bought a processor because 775 are really hard to find where i live, and are too expensive, it's better to just upgrade motherboard+processor+memory. But right now i don't have the money :S

    800 mhz!

    I don't think that is a bad contact, because the cpu is not listed in the compability list, and also it works at 130w when it is in full load, and maybe the motherboard can't go that high because the bios doesn't have instructions to do so!
    If you check the compability list there isn't a single cpu there that needs this much power, it only goes has high has 95W.

    Btw can you tell me how do you clean the cpu gold dots? I might do it just to see what happens!

    think your power rating is issue
