I've built a PC with Pentium 4 2.8GHz 533 FSB and 512K Cache. On boot the screen says 'CPU change detected...... set CPU frequency in BIOS. I've found the relevant section & the default setting is 133 Mhz. This can be altered in increments of 1 upto 200. What should I set it to? & why?
Thanks again chaps. The Pc works (after a fashion) I've had other issues (see other posts I've made) I've only just got it to behave like its working & haven't yet installed the CD drive to install my software yet. I've just put my old PC's HDD in. I suspect bremner's right (fingers crossed) & when the CD drive's in I can install all the correct software. Haven't done so as I fancy a DVD / CD writer combo. Nothing's ever simple. Doubtless I'll be pestering again when I move onto my next 'issue'
For further info, there's a section in Bios entitled 'load high performance defaults' that was unavailable, stateing not loaded, reset cmos. I did & it allowed me to 'do what it said on the tin' Investigation into processor frequency now asked for a DEC number. From Rayuk's post I guessed at 4 & it all seems ok now ! I havent got the disc with the mobo, but had downloaded much of the stuff before. Unfortunatly not all, & now am missing some network drivers required for my internet connection. They're to big for floppy so I'm mailing them to a friend (from my Laptop) so he can put them on cd. I think once I can connect the pc I'm working on to the internet it'll be all downhill, I'm sure. Will it never end?
