last time... what amd cpu did u use?? and btw it will be alot more easier to help if u can let me know the board!

The manufacture's name and motherboard model might be displayed as the BIOS goes through its post routine. use pause!

Check if that FSB jumper change also changed the memory speed setting.

What memory type are you using?

DDR should be 266Mhz or higher with a 133 MhZ FSB.
SDRAM should be 133 Mhz memory not 100 Mhz.

If you haven't changed the BIOS it should have the timing set for CL2.5 which is fine for any memory. If you set the memory to high performance it could have set CL 2.0 which requires better grade memory to be stable. Check the memory timings.

no offense but wouldn't it be an idea, next time, to learn a bit about hardware before building a PC? :confused:

no offense either, but isn't that what he's doing THIS time (learning more about hardware)? Hey, you gotta start somewhere.


Anyway good luck with the k7vt2. A good basic cheap board to learn the ropes on!!! I had some troubles trying to push the memory too far, so definitely set the mem settings back to cas 2.5 and see if that helps. If I remember there's a bios setting to reset everything back to basic default that you might want to try if you've been mucking about and don't remember exactly what you played with.

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
