Installation of Athlon XP2000+ in 867AS Motherbard

  brian770 02:30 09 Nov 2006


I wonder if anyone can help with a problem? My main system base unit had GA-7VRXP motherboard with a VIA KT333 AGPset, but unfortunately 'fried' a few components and left me with a 600 Duron machine, as an alternative. I installed the RAM from the Gigabyte motherboard with no problems(apparent) but when I tried the processor it didn't boot although it had the standard short POST 'beep', my query is, is this, as I assume, caused by the chipset being incompatible, and if so is it possible to swop the chipsets? This is only a tempory measure really as I will have to replace the mobo in my main machine.

Thanks for having a read and even more thanks to anyone who can give me a fix for the problem.

Best Regards

Here is a list of supported processors for revision 1.0 board:

Revision 3.0 board:

You need to know the motherboard revision number, the bios version and the BOM, which these links tell you where to find. You also need to know exactly which XP 2000+ cpu you have (read the tiny writing on the chip itself for the serial number)

Hi again

Thanks AndySD and Keef66 for your advice and info, having done as requested, it would appear (surprise)that the CPU didn't escape the frying.

S'pose I'll have to visit the bank manager ..... Damn!!

Anyway, thanks again Guys.
