Did you update the motherboard BIOS before you changed the processors?

You need BIOS version 1401 or higher for the Athlon processor.

If you do have the correct BIOS installed, did you clear the CMOS when you switched the processors?

yes I updated the bios. I didn't clear the cmos.
Can it be a windows problem? win 10 have some problems with amd. My windows is build 1803.


This is the latest Quadro P600 Nvidia Graphics Driver from Nvidia Support : NVIDIA DRIVERS Quadro Desktop/Quadro Notebook Driver Release 390 WHQL .

Update the Graphics driver and see if it helps any.

I would also install, if you haven't yet, the last AMD CHIPSET from Asus Support: A68HM-K Driver & Tools | Motherboards | ASUS USA


Version GBytes

AMD Chipset Driver
AMD Chipset driver version 17.10.2001) support win10 64bit

I cleaned cmos. The same problem occured again. I installed only 4gb ram and successfully installed win 10. As soon as I installed second ram same problem occured. I searched on internet and set my ddr3 rams voltage to 1.65 than problem vanished. now everything is ok swimmingly well. Thank you for your help.
