CPU not supported
Posted 20 August 2012 - 10:40 AM
My pc has been running fine til a hiccup came. A sudden power shortage occurred last week while I was on the PC. When I boot up, it would tell me that my CPU is not supported(this wasn't the case before the power shortage) and to check the QVL. However I am still able to boot past that by press F1. I'm using an ASUS M5A78L-M-LE and a Phenom X6 1055T. Since then I have been experiencing a stuttering frame rate while playing games, and occasionally stuttering in videos. I have tried upgrading/downgrading my drivers but it doesn't seem to fix this stutter.
I have tried to update my BIOS but I still get the CPU not supported message, and upon checking the supported CPUs list for my mobo, it lists my CPU as supported. Tried resetting CMOS, still nada.
Thanks a lot.

Did you tried to unplug all cables (power/keyboard/mouse, everything...) connected to your computer then remove the bios battery then push on power buton a few seconds and then reconnect every cable and power it then go to bios and "load setup default settings" if the option exist ?
Also, i don't see the 1055T in CPUs support list from asus.

Yes, that's true.
a 1045T and a 1065T is listed, both are rated 95W
A 1055T is marked at 125W Thermal Design Power.
The M5A78LM_LE dosn't provide 125W and seems to be broken now?
Which CPU cooler and PSU do you use?

I have the 95w version of the 1055T, and this cpu has been added support through an update that ASUS posted. I think they haven't updated the support list but here's the link to the update with the description.
I have tried removing the battery and unplugging all the cables, as well as loading setup defaults but I still get that error.
I'm using the stock cooling fan, and using a thermaltake 500W CPU.
I have been using this build for about 2 years now, and this problem suddenly pops up.

I'm not entirely sure but I suppose it was heavy rain which caused some problems for the power lines locally, I was asleep when it happened. When I booted up my PC I noticed that it said 'surge protection' was enabled so that's what I figured happened.
Makes sense, tough luck. The only one I can try would be to test it with another PSU. I'll post back about the results.
Thanks a lot for the replies.
