BIOS update for Sempron

  pinfog1 01:34 14 Nov 2004

Previous problem was AMD 2200+ sempron showing as 900Mhz Athlon diagnosed as incompatible m/board.

The motherboard is a Mercury Kobian KOB266a FDSX. Their website (in not too accurate English)offers a BIOS update stating

"To recognize new AMD CPU still ~2600+ ( FSB: 133Mhz"
- that last line is copied & pasted - and dated 4/11/2002.

Any chance that should say "FSB 333Mhz"?
There is another BIOS update on their site for a diferent board dated Jan 2004 with the note "To recognize new AMD Duron FSB133MHz CPU".

Sorry just re read your post, misunderstood what you meant, but understand now.

I don't think you anything to loose, I went to buy an Athlon on Friday, But were told there were none instock but a sempron would do the job just as well. I'm sure if you update the bios, at the worst it will still show at 900Mhz Athlon.
