I've just put a GA-7N400-L gigabyte m/b in my pc. Whin I switch on the black and white writing recognizes the processor as a athlon 1100 with the message CPUID 066> after it. Gigabytes tech. support says my PSU at 300w is not enough, and I need a 450w or 550w supply. Can this be correct? I am running Win 98 with 2 x Hard drives. 20GB primary and a 6GB on a removable caddy. 128mb DDR Geforce 3 TI200 G/card. CD drive. CD/RW drive. Front panel hub. 2 x case fans.
Is that about the DDR introduction? I am running 512mb (2 x 256)of PC2100 DDR, Although not the same brand. I bought the second module at the same time as the m/b. I am using slots 1 and 3. I changed the m/b because of similar problems to, 'Blank monitor problem' and 'PC randomly doesn't start'
Nice one ........ I think. I've had a look, and there is a switch there. Looking in the manual (p14) it does say 'set system jumper' I was looking for a little plastic thing across some pins......dohh. I'm going to try it now.
