[REQUEST] AMD Athlon 64 X2 3250e on Asus M4A78L-M LE
#1
Hello all,

Sitting at home recently (like a lot of people) and decided to pick up some hobby projects. So I have a low power cpu (salvaged from a laptop), the AMD X2 3250e which I have been hoping to get working on a ASUS M4A78L-M LE for a NAS build.

So it boots and the motherboard recognizes the CPU correctly, however when I boot in Openmediavault (based on debian) the kernel gives a warning that no ACPI _PSS objects were received. As a result Cool n Quiet is not working.

So I have not found a bios from exactly the same chipset which does officially support this CPU but there are motherboards out there which officially support this CPU with similar chipset (e.g. 780G, whereas this the 780L)

original Backup bios

latest bios from asus website

780G chipset motherboard bios that officially supports this CPU: link

Would be really grateful if somebody can help with this (or point me in the right direction how to do it myself)

Thanks!

Did you do Load Setup Defaults in BIOS?

I just did, gives the same error. Only difference, far as I can see, is that setup defaults disables C1E, qfan and treats disks as IDE (instead of raid or ahci).

Current BIOS has suitable AGESA and microcode for Athlon 64 X2 3250e.

Seems so since it recognizes the CPU correctly, it's just that Cool N Quiet doesnt work. Perhaps because there is no entry for this in the ACPI table since this motherboard doesnt offically support this CPU.

Boot in Windows (or Live DVD/USB) and run RWEverything. Try portable version.
Press ACPI Tables button, maximize appeared window and make a screenshot.

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, it seems installing the latest version of W10 is a hassle on older hardware (the latest versions of W10 install disks just gives errors).

Anyway here are some of the tabs of RWeverything:

RSDP

FACP 1, FACP 2

Was this what you were looking for?

Now I need DSDT from this system but with another CPU, that starts without powernow_k8 error.
