recently put new motherboard and cpu in daughters pc.just stop gap until new one.the problem is very small but annoying the motherboard msi k7n2gm2 detects processor as sempron 2500+ but device manager detects it as an athlon.the chip actually is a sempron why does windows see it as an athlon and will it effect the performance in any way.many thanks darren

Dont worry about it the semperon is a cut down Athlon and as long as the clock speed is correct it will not affect the performance.
