Hello, my computer had installed the intel core 2 E2180 and worked just fine, now i bought the intel core 2 extreme x6800 and the problem started.
1- The name of the cpu is not correct, in the POST apears like this "Genuine Intel(R) [email protected],93GHz" without the line but with the space, in the BIOS is the same, with cpu-z apears as E6800, only aida64 shows the correct name of the cpu.
2- I had installed windows 7 32bits and it started to show blue screens and rebooting.
3- I formated and intalled windows vista sp1 32bits and all updates and all drivers updates, the computer is stabel but even now and then blue screen appears, but BIOS must be with the optimal defaults settings, if i change anything in the BIOS the blue screen appears after reboot.

"Consider BIOS upgrade

Microsoft is unable to determine the exact cause of this error. However, this problem was most likely caused by an error in your computerís random access memory (RAM). RAM is the main internal storage area the computer uses to run programs and store data.
During the crash analysis, we noticed the basic input/output system (BIOS) version on this computer does not match the specifications for the central processing unit (CPU), also known as a processor, that is installed on your computer. This can occur when a newer processor is installed on an older system board or older BIOS. Using a BIOS that does not support the installed processor can result in Windows system crashes. Contact your computer manufacturer or motherboard manufacturer for an updated version of BIOS for your computer's processor."

I allredy have the updated BIOS.
Please tell me wath i should do to solve this problem.
