Hi,
A problem with my PC, When I set the FSB to the correct setting i.e registers as a 1900+ in bios my pc freezes, even when on bios boot up!

But when I drop the FSB speed back down so the processor registers as 1200+ in bios my pc works Great!

Spec;
ASROCK Motherboard
512MB DDR PC 2100 Ram
AMD 1900+ Processor
80Gig & 120 Gig Hd.

Any ideas?

Have you checked to see if there are any BIOS updates that could cure your problem?

What model of motherboard are you using?

If you have Motherboard Jumpers check they are where they should be, for CPU

The bios update could be it, but cant download the bios of asrock.com. The Fsb jumpers are correct.

Am I correct in stating that an AMD 1900 does not mean it is running at 1900 khz but in fact more like 1400 khz (sorry that figure may not be stated correctly)
I just wondered if you were overclocking it and causing the lock up by maybe overheating.

maybe that should have read Gighz

My understanding is;- yes a AMD 1900+ runs at about 1400mhz. No its not over clocked. When the bios boots up it says processor AMD 1200+ but it should say AMD 1900+

The FSB is now set to 100mhz but it should be 133mhz, BUT when its on 133MHZ computer does not get past the bios

I have managed to download the 1.7 version of the bios. If you send me a message I can email it too you. Don't worry it's only 192 kb in size.
