Hello,

So I just bought a new CPU which is an AM3+. My motherboard is an Asrock 770 extreme3 which is listed as an AM3 but can be compatible with AM3+ if I update the BIOS (the one listed for AM3+ compatibility is listed as being in beta). So I updated the BIOS and put in my new CPU but I get this error when I boot up my computer. Everything seems to run fine though once I get past that screen. I'm just curious if maybe I updated the BIOS incorrectly or if it could be a side effect of the BIOS being in beta or something? I followed the directions listed on ASRock's website so I'm a little confused.

No I didn't... but it appears to have resolved itself. After about the 3rd time I booted up my computer the message has stopped appearing. I'm not sure what I did to fix it though.
