Yes, this solved the issue. Thank you.
I am a so new user of Ubuntu I still have the fresh car smell :) I am trying to install Ubuntu 12.10 on my HP Pavilion dv7 AMD quad processor laptop.
I've recently installed 12.04 on a lenovo G505 with an AMD A4-5000.
As of 3.4 the kernel will autoload the microcode module, which will attempt to load the firmware for your CPU. If the firmware is not installed you will get this error.
Since arch install the new 3.7.9 kernel my usb devices freezes random (mouse, keyboard and so on) [ 5.119718] microcode: failed to load file amd-ucode/microcode_amd.bin

I have Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS 64 bit desktop system. I recently installed microcode. Then I decided to uninstall it and went to synaptic and removed intel-microcode and microcode.ctl package.
I'm sorry, I made microcode load before coretemp:softdep coretemp pre: microcodein modprobe.confwhich seems to work, but coretemp starts at 2.8, at which time microcode is not yet updated (2.85) obviously

This flashes on screen for a couple of seconds when I boot into Ubuntu (The system boots and runs fine)

They seemed to come up with the conclusion that this was a non-issue here. Just want to be safe and ask vs not fixing a problem if it exist
I have installed a Microsoft Hotfix update from 2011 that rectifies something in mcupdate_GenuineIntel.dll.
I also checked SiSoft Sandra to ensure that supplied in BIOS is latest, from 2013.
My question is: since Microsoft microcode update loads after BIOS, is OS smart enough to let the newer microcode run, or does it fall back to 2011 microcode?
And just in case this question cannot be answere
