Hi Guys continuing the upgrade saga I put a athlon 2200 cpu in my girls comp but in post and in bios it is showing as a durron 1800 I have reset the jumpers and checked the fsb which are correct now I am stummped any help Guys would be appreciated thanks Kopite
guduf I thought that but when I first installed it it showed 2200 athlon then just changed and I am wary about flashing the bios as the mb is a elite k7s5a but it doese not say a version on the board and elite website seem to have bios for ver 1 and ver 3 thanks Kopite
sounds strange spuds but I belive you I am going to try honey x oc bios see if that sorts it out as you say the comp is fine its just bugging me if you hear of a explosion in neasden its not bin ladens gang its me Kopite
Hi Guys update to upgrade I down loaded honey x oc from ezboard flashed the bios and it is now showing 2200 in post and a added bonus myn cpu now runs on a 146+146 fbs thanks for the advice I thought a bios fklash would do it but was a bit nervous first time but all is well thanks again to the best forum on the web kopite
If your CPU and RAM FSB is running at 146 then it is overclocked. You had better check the temperatures or possibly face damage to your system. POST screen should show it as a XP2200 and if it is showing 2200Mhz then reset BIOS frequency to 133+133. If you press the Pause/Break key during boot it should tell you the BIOS date and number.
Ardvark yes I am overclocked but I done a chipstead mod added a bigger heatsink and a fan and downloaded speedfan and used their clock till it stabilasied at 146 + 146 and it shows a athlon 2400 in post no problems so far nice and stable kopite
