Intel Core 2 duo e4500 dual core process...

Specs: Windows 7, E4500/2Gb
Abit IP-35e + Intel e4500 2,2

I've updated bios in order to solve the dual boot problem, but instead another problem occured. The bios update went well but after restart i can see the message 'cpu is unworkable or has been changed'. I can continue pressing F1 (every time i turn on pc) or go to menu. How to deal with this ? CPUZ shows core frequency 1,2~, shouldn't it be like 2.2 ? Here are screens



I've just checked it in cpu-z and the multiplier is 6x but bios shows 11. something's wrong here.

It is common practice to reset the BIOS to default values after a BIOS flash. Did you do this?

Solved, I turned off the C1E ( or something like that) option in BIOS which is responsible for saving energy when cpu is not stressed. In fact the cpu was all the time low freq.

If you are not overclocking your CPU you can usually leave on the energy saving features. To test if they are working correctly you would keep open CPU-Z and open a program in a window (still showing CPU-Z on the side) that will stress the CPU and you should see the CPU speed increase to 'normal' or maximum value. If this happens, then all is working correctly. the processor will just drop to a lower state during idle times to save energy and cool itself off. Your choice of course.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

That was the issue - under stress it didn't really return to the default 2,2GHz frequency.
