Is the PC a OEM (HP-Dell-etc.) or a custom build?
Are you certain that CPU is compatible with that Mobo/Bios?
Can you get to the Bios when the old CPU is installed?
That Mobo is made by Foxconn but there "network is busy".

If you're referring to OC'ing the CPU: https://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...rs-232382.html

hi read your link, i understand you need to be carefull but its an old computer and i only need it to stream movies to the tv, that sound like a long winded affair i was hoping to change a couple of setting/mhz, volts for the cpu, just to get a bit more umph ...dont need a mad oc just a couple of hundred mhz, cpu is a single core amd athlon 64 running at 2.2meg was hoping to take it to 2.4/5 ...also it will be my first oc as all other comps are oem and cant be done..bit of practise really

Small increments of OC'ing won't show any improvement.
Try it as is and see how it goes.
