I've got a new Asus A7V333 motherboard with a Athlon 1600XP chip installed. This is my first experience with a Asus board. As best I can tell all the jumpers are in their default settings and the "jumper free mode" is active. Upon bootup I get the error "CPU failed system test". I'm looking just to make sure that its not a configuration problem that I've "man made" but really is a bad CPU before I go through all the headache of getting a RA and pull it out and send it back. Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks in advance for ANYTHING you guys (and gals) can send me!!:)

You may have fried your CPU if you didn't install the heatsink right...so you might send it back, but keep in mind, it may be your fault...which means, you voided the warranty

I meant he didn't install it correctly...if it isn't seated right, it can overheat..

I am using A7V333 mobo as well, and i accidentally installed my hsf the other way round on my XP 1800+. I dun think u can fry ur cpu that easily as A7V333 comes with cpu overheating protection.

My previous experience (the wrong direction of HSF installation) enabled me to boot up at 1150MHz only however, not at stock of 1553MHz.

So, just double check everything and hope it works for u.

Uhmm...well I think I read something about this earlier today at sharkyextreme...try looking inside the socket...is the thermosistor thingy sticking up and keeping the processor from sitting like it's supposed to?

If not, take your finger or another blunt object if u prefer (make sure you're grounded) and push it down, (not very far, just far enough so that the socket edges clear it.)

Deja, the A7V333 reads the internal diode. In regards to CPU overheating protection, it needs to be enabled in BIOS, so it may or may not be...and it's not foolproof. So yes, you can easily fry your CPU, even with COP.

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
