Hi,My motherboard is a Asus A7V8X-X,My processor is AMD Athalon 2800xp barton.I have downloaded and flashed latest bios to support newer cpus.However I have to enter the following info manually I dont know what to key. (1)I need to know the CPU Frequency multiplier(Mhz)and (2)CPU External frequency .I have Pc3200 DDRam installed .On the advanced bios board the choice of cpu starts at manual up to 2500, so i have to enter the above 2 parameters manually and i am stuck. Any ideas , thanks Vinny
Well this is very confusing ,The manual says it supports both amd 2800xp and pc32000, but obviously there is a problem.To avoid system hangs could you tell me what the bios settings would be best set at. I have also included this link to amd for others who are getting confused or seeking info:-
Well ,seems like I have a learning curve to conquer.i have studied what you have said and read my motherboard manual this time more closely.Yes your right it supports both, but only in a certain combination.But if for now i have to run at the lower speeds could you please tell me what i should set cpu settings to in bios.Thankyou vinny
The link doesnt work but I guess you are refering to the 2800+ 266fsb MP cpu. This WILL work with pc3200 ( 400Mhz ) ram. That is because it is not a 333Mhz barton cpu.
Here are the bios settings for a barton cpu click here. Then F10 to save and exit. You will find that every time you try to re-boot with those settings, it will fail. It will take you back to the bios and reset the cpu speed.
