If you look under cpu support list on the asus site (across the right of downloads)you will see your processor is supported by a minimum of bios v 0407 or v 0701 - im not sure which one yours ( there are 2 diff 6000+ cpus) - its up to you whether you want to update it - you need to open system information and scroll down to bios version, and check what version you already have - to do this go to start and click - in the seach at the bottom type "system information" in the results select system information, and click, and in the window scroll down to bios version/date.

If your not comfortable updating the bios your self leave it as a last resort, or get someone else to do it.
Thank You for helping! One question, is this all needed to be done, because this windows 7 has just been installed and is totally new and everything
