1. The string with error about unsupported CPU has id = 6A
2. The function printing strings on the screen has address = 7675 in RUN_CSEG module.
3. The function printing this error has address = 1C92 in HPDBOARD_CSEG module:
Code:
1C92 pushad
1C94 call POST_CSEG:0AB2Eh
1C99 jnb short 1CB2h
1C9B call POST_CSEG:4986h
1CA0 call RUN_CSEG:76A9h
1CA5 mov bx, 6Ah
1CA8 call RUN_CSEG:7675h
1CAD mov al, 1
1CAF call HPDBOARD_CSEG:191h
1CB2 popad
1CB4 retf
I've made one byte patch.
Code:
1C99 jmp short 1CB2h
Please verify my BIOS mod2.

DeathBringer you are a Lifesaver!! You are the biggest AND greatest help I have ever gotten on Forums.  It Worked, whatever you did worked and now the 615e works on my Touchsmart. Finally after almost 2 years of waiting. Here are some screenshots of 615e . The processor rating dropped from 6.3 to 6.1 but I guess that is normal because the 615e has lower clock speed at 2.5ghz vs 2.8ghz on 240e. In Theory the 615e should be much faster than 240e because of more cores.

It isn't normal. Passmark rating:
AMD Athlon II X2 240e - 1,720
AMD Athlon II X4 615e - 2,876
I think only two cores are working.
Can you take screenshots of CPU-Z, Task manager and Device manager with expanded node with CPU?
And I need a foto of page in BIOS with CPU information.

When I exited out of bios windows would not start. Weird Issue to say the least.

I see only two cores in CPU-Z!
Run msconfig and go to Boot tab.
[Image: 3882d1210658119-boot-advanced-options-nu...-step1-jpg]
Press Advanced options and then uncheck Number of Processors.
[Image: 3883d1210658124-boot-advanced-options-nu...step2a-jpg]
Press OK and reboot.
After all create new screenshots of CPU-Z and Resource Monitor (CPU tab):

Great news! Add [Solved] to header of this topic.
And please post new topic in Confirmed CPU Support Upgrades with attached BIOS mod.

Reason of it is old AGESA in BIOS. It has version 6.1.5.0 without support C3 stepping.

DeathBringer there is a slight problem. Remember I said in my earlier post about the infamous blue screen error. I keep getting unexpected shutdowns windows says and I keep getting blue screen errors. Why is the bios mod causing blue screen errors? Please fix this blue screen error issue, other than that DeathBringer the bios mod is really great at least the 615e is working now Smile

I need additional info:
1. Screenshots of Memory & SPD tabs of CPU-Z.
2. The screenshot of AIDA with expanded node CPUID.
3. The screenshot of regedit with expanded key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0

Well deathbringer another slight problem. Now I can't even get on computer right now because windows keeps crashing with infamous blue screen error as soon as I log into windows. But I was lucky at the very last minute before the infamous blue screen errors got worse I could only get one screenshot.
