cpu settings


OSNN Addict
hi all

built my first pc reccently and though it seems to be working well it seems a little slow,

athalon xp2100
firstly i have a gigabyte ga-7va mobo (amd)
256 ddr 2100

psu 350 watts
now i set the jumper on the mobo for the cpu to 133mhz
choices were 100 133,166
agp to 4 x
graphics creative mx440 ddr 64mb

did all the usual tweaks ,pagefile etc
all the updates installed
but when i installed my hd i still had the xp os in place and didnt format it ,and it took ok

some programmes a wee bit unstable now

are the above settings right

When I make major changes, I tend to do a reformat (after backing-up), and re-install XP.........erring on the cautious!


XP Abuser

yeh its like havin a new car with an old engine it seems alright but when you look closer its really ****e and doesnt let the car use its full potential. so get a new engine dammit (I Mean Windows)

ya get wat im sayin?

yeah i thought you guys would say that,did a backup before i started building the pc,was a little disappointed that the pc was slower than i expected it to be and some of the programmes are working but crashing in the middle of me working on them so i guess its format city for me
does anyone know if the settings that i gave at the start of the thread are ok for this mobo
any advice would be great:)


could be your new ram causing problem... faulty ram can crash things withou warning...
All hardware settings seem correct. You should do a reformat after any major upgrade. That way you get proper driver configuration (i.e., no driver conflicts).:D

"Tell em' the Snook said that":D :D :D

P. S. This is my 1000th post! Do I get a door-prize or something?:p
did a format with windows everything settled down ,am going to get another 256 ddr ram soon so hopefully this will help the speed as well
thanks for all the posts guys :D
