So I wanted to upgrade my processor because when I watched 1080P movies, sometimes they would be choppy and that is because my old cpu was only 1.8ghz. I bought a "Intel Pentium E5700 Wolfdale 3.0GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor BX80571E5700" for my "Intel DG965RY LGA 775 Intel G965 Express ATX Intel Motherboard. For some reason the computer is not using the full 3.0 speed and when I checked the bios it said that it is only using .4ghz. Now my computer is running super slow. What can I do to fix this problem? Would I be able to get a refund from newegg or am I just screwed and have to purchase a new Mobo/cpu/ram?

Well, I cant find a full list of compatible CPUs, but the list I did find does not have that CPU on it. Looking at the specs, it looks like it should work-but thats not always the case. a BIOS update might fix the problem but I can't make any garentees.

Thanks for responding so fast. About updating the bios, I tried doing it through a memory stick and with a exe updater but neither one worked.

consult your motherboard manual for proper instructions on how to do it-normally, they require a diskette drive.

my computer doesnt have a diskette drive and I did check the manual and it says that there are other ways to update the bios via USB drive, CD, exe file and diskette. My CD drive died on me and no diskette drive which leaves me with the other 2 options.

when you updated via USB, what did it do? did it give any error messages-exactly how do you know the BIOS update didnt work? did it not update, or did the update not help the problem?

No error messages, I entered the command at the DOS prompt "IFLASH2 /PF XXX.BIO /RB" of course I put the actual name of the BIO file. It then started the update process but then the screen goes black and even after hours of leaving it like that it still doesn't restart. I then have to do a hard boot plus a restart in order to get back to windows. Same thing happens when trying to update using the EXE. The EXE even says that it completed the update but when I go back to the Bios it is still the old version. I am basically out of options and might have to settle buying a new mobo that is known to be compatible with a Intel Pentium Dual Core E5700 3.0ghz processor. I am retarded because I thought I was getting a core 2 duo, but either way, the Intel website says this mobo is only compatible up to 2.6ghz.

If u go for the new motherboard you may be better off saving your pennies and go with something a little more up todate as well as a memory/cpu update
