New build Jetway motherboard and setup problems

  Cam-330894 10:51 25 Jan 2003

I hope someone can help. The time came for a new computer. I read the reviews and chose the parts, collected them last saturday and finished putting it together on monday.
CPU= Athlon XP+ 2001 MB=Jetway V333u 128Mb of 266 DDR ram PSU rated at 350W. Everything went well at the default setings except the PCU was shown as an XP 1500. Dived into the case and reset the FSB to 133, this gave the right description for the chip but system now halts and bleeps continuously.
This was not my first choice MB - can't find anything useful on the web.
I hope someone out there has some ideas.

Have you tried taking everything out and starting again, leave the FSB at 133 then put your components back one at a time and this might help to identify the problem, a bit painstaking I know but if it works it will be worth it.

The system runs with the FSB set at 100, the default. It needs to be 133 for the chip to respond as a 2100.
Bearing in mind what Legolas says I will swap out the components and try again.

I have stripped out any unnecessary hardware.
Installed win me on a HDD I know is good.
Repositioned the ram and the agp card and still no luck.
I am still waiting for the Tech Support to get bqck to me. So far it looks like I will have to strip the system and play ne face in the shop at the wek end.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

Many tanks for he support offered.
The system now seems to be running stably.
Thanks again
