I recently downgraded back to ME (kinda had it with Windows lately) and now my processor reads as unknown. When I built this computer I ran ME, so I know it is compatible. All device managers I have used, including AMD's cpuid, reads it as unknown, though cpuid's Vendor ID says "authentic AMD". I attempted to install the driver pack for ME, but it tells me I am not running anything supported by AMD. I built this thing a long time ago and believe that it is an Athlon. (though I can take the computer apart to find out exactly which, AMD drivers wont install as they read the processor as unknown and therefore claim they are incompatible; finding individual drivers for ME has been virtually impossible) My motherboard is installed properly, directly from disk, and I have not had any other issues.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get the computer to read the processor so I can install new drivers?
