go to webpage for the M2N-E and check the CPU support for bios version needed for your 5200, there are 5 listings so you need the exact revision and wattage listed on your CPU. the bios currently installed on your mobo must be a higher number than the one listed else you will have to upgrade the bios (as per the asus instruction manual).
