Ok, I just recently installed windows 7 pro on my pc. I wanted to upgrade my cpu and mother board while doing that.

Manu: Acer
Model: WMCP78M
Mobo: NVIDIA nForce 720a Rev A2
SouthB: NVIDIA ID075C Rev A2

BIOS: Pheonix Tech
Version: R01-B0 (Dated 03/31/2009 - latest I can find on Acer's site)

Socket AM2 (940)
65 nm
AMD Athlon 2650e <- POS :??:

Windows 7 Pro x64
NVIDIA GeForce 8200 (integrated)

Ive been reading and I though a AMD Athlon II X2 240e would be perfect, but its not. The cool thing is the company I ordered it from sent the wrong one and sent me the 245e the first time, so I was able to try both. If there is anything I need to do or try, please let me know. I am wanting to upgrade to 2.8mhz or better! Any other opinions on processors would be outstanding.

Forgot to include that I figured I could install the processor, then reboot using the windows 7 CD and do a "repair" to have the correct driver installed, but when I try those 2 processors i listed above, the damn screen dont even come on.
