Need a replacement CPU with SSE2 instruction set

by castingman2005 / December 20, 2013 8:20 AM PST

I have an older computer with an Athlon XP +3200 (Socket A (462)) CPU in an Abit AN7 MB. The CPU has the SSE instruction set but I need the SSE2 instruction set for a program I'd like to run.

Is there a a replacement that will work in my MB?

(NT) This looks to be Socket 939 where the OP needs Socket A

You're right....my misread. Just jumped to the Atlon +3200

as I have one of the old AMD Athlon 64 4800+ (X2 Dual Core Processor) but it is indeed a socket 939. Socket 462 was before that but had a similar name Athlon +3200. Thanks for noting the error.

The think is, P4 and 939 socket machines are

Being sent to the grinders. And given how Socket A CPUs tend to go up in smoke, I was one that banned that model from being accepted for repair at the service counters. Someone must hate me but it was not an easy decision. Video follows.

Yes....I remember stories about AMD CPUs(or MBs)

without any overtemp/shutdown features....that's seems like that was a long time ago.

And CPUs with small surface areas and no heatspreaders....those were the days.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
