An E5500 is not a supported CPU for either version of the board:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?DetailID=827&CategoryID=1&MenuID=16&LanID=0

There is a BIOS update shown there for each version of the board, and it's possible it may include E5500 support, but it seems unlikely since the Ver 1.0 update, which it seems yours probably is, lists no CPUs and the Ver 1.0A update specifically lists only E5200, 8300 & 8600.

Thankyou Platypus for your help. I updated the bios using your first link and the message is now gone, however Im getting a new message saying "CMOS Checksum Bad Error".

Seems likely you didn't set the option to reset the CMOS data after update. Clear the CMOS memory - with the system disconnected from the power, move the jumper on the CLR_CMOS pins adjacent to the CMOS backup battery on the mainboard from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds, and return it to 1-2. That should sort out the checksum error. The BIOS settings will revert to defaults and you might want to enter the BIOS setup screen when you start the system up and set the order of boot devices and any other settings you may wish to be other than the default. In many cases all the default settings are fine.

Thankyou so much Platypus :)
