GA-M57SLI-S4 (rev. 2.0) with FHk BIOS and a X4 945
« on: January 28, 2010, 04:01:08 pm »
New to the forum but not new to Gigabyte at all.

I have a GA-M57SLI-S4 (rev. 2.0) with BIOS FHk and it runs fine with my old 6000+ DC installed. But I just got my new CPU the Phenom II X4 945 Quad and tried to install that and well all I get is a black screen at boot. Per the CPU support list on Gigabytes web site I should be able to run the 945 95W CPU.

Steps I have taken
1. Clear CMOS
2. Set the BIOS to default
3. Verified that it’s the 95 watt CPU via the box and cross checked it with AMD website.
4. to make sure my motherboard is not damages I popped in the old 6000+ and it boots up without a problem. And that is what I am using right now.

Phenom II X4 945 is the 95w C2 version. HDX945WFGIBOX

Any help is appreciated. Or any suggestions? TIA for any help.
