Athlon 2650e is an AM2 "Lima Core" CPU 15W TDP NOT 45W

Therefore an AM2+ or AM3 CPU will not be suitable, and I doubt Acer/eMachines/Gateway have or will release a BIOS Update, as the machine is a Walmart Special.

Found this though:

"I was limited to CPU’s that produced 45W or less of power, which basically means the “e” line ( 4450e, 5050e, 4850e, BE-2400, 3250e). These types of processors had been selling for $50-60, but then I lucked out and found an an AMD Athlon X2 BE-2400 2.3 GHz Processor which I was able to get cheaper than average ($32 w/ shipping!)."
