BSOD Erros - The current system does not support the cpu FX 8120

I have this PC:

Motherboard Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2

Processor AMD FX-8120


NVIDIA GeForce 210

Windows 10 64 bits (clean and updated installation).


I am having random error blue screens, the event visor shows "Performance power management features on processor are disabled due to a firmware problem. Check with the computer manufacturer for updated firmware."

On windows boot I get a message "The current system does not support the cpu. If you wish to continue, the cpu will be underclocked to maintain system stability".


I changed the power source for a new one, upgraded from BIOS F4 to the last one (F6) in gygabyte site, updated all possible drivers and the problem remains.


Can it be something about the AHCI mode ? (which I have disabled)

...speedstep ? (which it is not in AMD BIOS)

...processor speed ? (automatic to 7X, reaching a max of 60°C)

...compatibility issues between motherboard, processor, graphics, SSD and Windows 10 or 64 bits?


Thanks a lot for your time !!
