Checkingupdating cpu microcode failed grant gustin dating hannah douglass
...thats because the semperon processors were only manufactured from 2004 to 2009 which if i guess correctly, the most recent one WILL in all probability bork your system since to the best of my knowledge, that most recent one is only for quad core processors made after 2012 and NOT designed to be compatible with on older processor such as yours..semperon was offered in lower cost computers with more modest capabilities and should run in linux mint very well...i hope this will be of some help to you in your newfound adventures with linux which in my personal opinion is probably the finest operating system for most average users available to date... My computer appeared to work without it just fine, and now that it is installed, I DO NOT see or notice a difference whatsoever.
I have very little experience with LM, and would like to have someone help me verify if my system is working as it should.
I do have a 64bit capable AMD Sempron, but is this intended for my older processor? I suggest that you do install it, as you can always go back into the Driver Manager and un-install it if you wish.
However since I had less than 4GB of RAM, I just stuck with 32bit.
Is this due to my computer having a Sempron 2.0Ghz?
I do have 3GB of memory, but some of that may be reserved for video card.
Just a blind statement of go ahead and install away.
I would think it is obvious that I am new to LM, and I thought experienced users could explain or point me in the right direction to find info on this AMD microcode When I first encountered this mysterious "device" in the driver manager it took me two minutes to google and read all that I wanted to know. Just read the answers (yes, including richyrich's). The explanations and any documentation that I can see is very vague.
