how do you get the cpu to recognize a new processor thru BIOS?

Either one of two ways

1. Newer motherboards will auto detect the processor and set it up accordingly.

2. some newer and most older motherboards have jumper switches located on the board that must be set to install a new processor.

Check with the motherboard manufacturer or system builder for details on your specific system

most modern boards will reconize the new cpu assuming your new cpu is compatable with the motherboard. You do however have to set jumpers on the motherboard for the cpu clock speed, another jumper for single (non-mmx) or duel (mmx) voltage, and some motherboards need to haev bus speed set.
Read your motherboard manuel, if you don;t have one, then go to the motherboards manufacturers web site and get the jumper settings there. Check the website:

they will provide info or links for most motherboards.
