Dell Vostros 400
#1
Hey Guys,

I've got an Dell Vostros 400 and wanted to upgrade the CPU to the highest supporten and bought an Q9550 (SLB8V), flashed the newest BIOS (1.0.15) and changed the CPU. The PC starts fine but Windows wont start and the BIOS wont show the CPU name only the 12MB cache. So maybe the newest E0 stepping is not supported ? Could someone please investigate this and maybe add support ? (Maybe unlock the secrets hidden in this BIOS too Cool )

thanks in advanced and I hope you can help me
Selisho

P.S Yes its the DG33M03 Mainboard which supports quad cores
