amd athlon 4850e driver
« on: September 19, 2013, 09:22:57 pm »
anyone know where to get drivers for a amd athlon 4850e processor? only reason i ask is i upgraded the processor in my old desktop pc with a processors that i pull out of a pc and it has worked good when i have needed it for years but it has been using the wrong driver. i kind of gave the computer to my mom to use and lately she has been complaining that it is slow. i know that sometimes having the right drivers can speed things up but i am having difficulties tracking down the right drivers.

    thanks but that is one of those download and buy our software things. i think if i installed a new up to date operating system on it or maybe re-installed the current operating system it might recognize the processor but i don't want to re-install everything. i know last time i did a re-install using the operating i had issues with licensing and what not.

    i was also told that the drivers for the processor are not really important as long as the bios have no issue with the processor. i am not sure how much i trust that info but i guess it could be right. the computer has run pretty good with the dual core processor.

    All the more reason I went to Linux. Free is an awesome thing. As far as drivers, Linux recognized my hardware and found drivers to work. That isn't always the case, but later style processors and other hardware are usually supported.

    ya. i have played around with Ubuntu and it is pretty good but i don't think i could make the switch. i am too use to windows. i have tried playing with very old copies of linux and was never able to even get it installed on my 286

    If you like the windows look and feel, I recommend zorin 6. I run it and mint 13 on my computer. And the old stuff is archaic compared to how the new stuff is. I have had trouble with really old stuff accepting the linux stuff, but anything made within the last 5-10 years has accepted it for me. It is a learning curve and a deviation from the windows mindset, though.
