Do you have an Athlon XP with Palomino or T-Bred core?

T-Bred isn't working on your mainboard.

I've seen that happen if you are trying to use changed mobo CPU multiplier settings with a normal "locked" CPU. If your board has these settings, make sure thay are set to "auto" or "default".

I would then check which CPU core you are using (Palomino, T-bred) like UltraBeamer said. You can tell by the numbers on the CPU. Plug the letters that appear after the "2100" on the CPU in a search engine and there will surely be a page that will help. Maybe someone here knows of a site that has the letter codes already deciphered?

If you find out the core is Palomino and are sure the mobo supoprts it, maybe the CPU is bad I guess.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
