    system :

    Athlon 1800+
    Geforce2MX200 Detenator 29.20
    128MB DDR 2100
    Asus board
    winXP

    everytime i try to change the FBS even by 1Mhz above 133 or change any memory setting, my comp locks up like 10-30 seconds after boot..
    and even on default, when i run 3Dmark2k1SE it locks up after a few minutes...

    This is so frusterating..err

    please help if you can, thanks.

    That may be the problem. It sounds a little hot @60c

    I disabled the sensor in the bios cause i was told that
    if i do that the bios won't halt my system when the temp goes up.

    are you certain its the temp ?

    I wouldn't say certain. I had my athlon go up to 60 once (my error). It locked up quick. Actually, if I remember right, it shut down. There may be other opinions on your specific problem. Give it some time, someone else will post.

    sounds like a heat issue to me as well. it's just not a good idea to let your cpu temp get that high. what kind of cooling setup do you
    have?

    Dude... You need better cooling.. I have a AMD XP 1800+ overclocked to a 2000+ and my temp is around 40c.

    Get a better fan......

    Here is a link to the fan I have. It is a : DRAGON ORB 3.


    Click

    Hope this help...

    PS... Dont ever disable the heat sensor in the bios......

    You can kill a good CPU that way !!!!!

    :p

    Yeah, i saw that fan and it looks awesome, i'll check how much it cost.

    Anyway, i've noticed that my supplier brought me the wrong fan+heatsink for my cpu; he brought me the VOLCANO 5, and i read its only up to Athlon 1700+, and what i need is the VOLCANO 6Cu or the Cu+

    Currently I had to set my FBS to 100Mhz (bummer) to stop the comp from locking up on full cpu load..

    Do not get the 6+ if noise is an issue. It runs at a constant 7000 RPM. Where as the 6 without the + runs at 4550 RPM. Better yet, get a Volcano 7, variable speed, very quiet, very efficient.
