j5689 Posted December 29, 2008 Share Posted December 29, 2008 (edited) Sorry to revive, but I got the 570J for Christmas and it didn't work. But at least it gave me a message:Incompatible processor found. Processing haltedor something like that. So what can I possibly upgrade this thing with, if anything?Hmmm, I wonder if you have the latest BIOS for your computer flashed? Is your computera dell gx280 computer? The A04 and A07 BIOS updates updated for newer processors. I have theA08 which was just a fix release.Here's what I read on the net.http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/218957-2...lder-dell-gx280heatsink too.http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/219099-2...el-570j-coolingwhich points to this article although they mention the intel 570 P4 and not the intel 570J P4.http://www.hardwarecentral.com/hardwarecen...cle.php/3486711So it could be that the BIOS doesn't support the no-execute bit????There are references on the net that the 570J is used in Dimensions and XPS dell computers.I have the A08 BIOS. Do you know of any that are later than that?Do I have to apply A04 and/or A07 first and then apply A08? Edited December 30, 2008 by j5689 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
