I keep getting a message that my AMD processor is not licensed, ???

All of a sudden I now get a message at the start up of my computer that the AMD processor is not Licensed??  This is not correct and being there is no customer service number to call for support, this is the method AMD uses to answer questions.  This is my first unit with the AMD processor, which I was told to not buy, it is might be my fault to have bought a unit with this competitive@ processor.

Re: I keep getting a message that my AMD processor is not licensed, ???

We need more info. about your PC to try and help you. Is your PC a store bought model that you upgraded? If so then the maker of the PC might have this automated message in the BIOS as the PC was not available with the CPU model that you currently have installed. This would have nothing to do with AMD or the processor itself.

Purchased it new from Staples last year. The only change in the system was

the upgrade to window 10

Some people complained that W10 didnt like CPU cache overclock, try to place at stock settings and confirm if it still makes the same.
