    Hope someone out ther can help,

    Since March this year I have been running an Athlon XP 1800 on an Epox 8K7A+ Motherboard.

    Initially started of with W2K which runs fine I decided to switch to WXP.

    Since then I have moved between the two and again settle for W2K.

    The reason being is that when I have XP installed I get the Inaccesible Boot Device blue screen when my CPU is set to its correct clock speed of 1.53mhz when I knock it down to a 1.1Mhz it works fine.

    I would really love to run XP but I don't really want to miss out on all my paid for processing power lol!

    Anyone got any ideas?

    Thanks In Advance

    The multiplier on you rXP Processor is 11.5
    If you set your system bios to 133 Mhz you will get 1.53 Ghz processor output.

    If you have set to 100mhz you will get 1.15Mhz output.
    Try to crank up a 100 Mhz system to 1.53 Ghz without changing bios will produce problems as you mentioned.
