Join the community here, it only takes a minute. then when i push the power button its starts fine then after like 5seconds its turns off. You may also... I have not changed the FSB setting to 166MHz, mainly because the Current FSB Frequency option in the BIOS menu is greyed out and cannot be changed.

All Athlon XP 2700+ ever made are multiplier unlocked. When I replaced the old processor (900 MHZ Duron) everything worked fine again.What I am having trouble determining is if the new processor is good or not (it was a refurbished I have flashed the BIOS to the latest revision, but this hasn't helped. Do this after unplugging everything & leaving it unplugged for a while.

However, the manual says that the CPU must be unlocked for these switches to work. I tried almost everything imaginable in the bios. Open the pod bay doors, Cortana. USA Sounds like either your cpu is overheating,(did you put the HSF on correctly using new TIM?) or your PSU is overheating, overcurrent.

P.S: You can still setup a 166MHz FSB provided you prepare to select a Divider Ratio in your BIOS to keep your memory bus at 266Mbits dual rates. well then turn the power on on the back of the psu i hear this wierd sound not sure what that is. http://hardware.programming4.us/forums/t/17520.aspx When I installed the new processor and powered up the computer I get nothing.

thats the main problem i cant get it started it was makin this wierd sound when i plugged it in and turn the switch on in the back. I am using a 512MB stick of Crucial DDR2700 memory, which I hope is OK. As for me, I can't overclock past 1.9 ghz, or so, without crashing once in a while (or when benchmarking). Why doesn't AMD increase the clock speed?Not that easy.

One thing I thought may have bearing on this is that the Duron processor has a FSB speed if 266 MHZ, while the new ATHALON has a FSB speed of 333 http://www.hardcoreware.net/forum/printthread.php?t=17076&pp=40 im sorry but that was the problem from the start i guess i should have worded it better or something like that.

but the fan does spin for like 5 seconds then the whole thing shuts down. http://todayspec.com/athlon-xp/athlon-xp-1900-or-is-it.php I would recommend removing your setup to outside your Case to rule out ANY possibilities of shortages existing in your case! This is just a guess. Open the pod bay doors, Cortana.

You say you have pc2700, and it is rated to 166mhz, so raising your fsb means pushing it beyond what it was supposed to work.

This explains somewhat why AMD uses their 'model #' to compare to intel. . .Athlon XP 3200+ Barton 400 2.200GHz 19800 intel 3.200Ghz 19200Athlon XP 3000+ Barton 400 2.100GHz 18900 intel The TIM is the thermal interface material that you apply to the processor before you attach the heatsink and the fan. It must be unlocked for you to change the multiplier but that is not what we're trying to do right now.

A lot. Also, my temps are quite high, hovering at around 55-58C loaded. But at the lower clock speeds the AMD is vastly superior. then when i pushed the power button in the front it would turn on and everything but after 5 seconds it would just shut down not sure if it was the

Lowered the ram timeings, increased votalge to the v core, and the ram, tryed multiplyers instead of raising the FSB so high.

Set the External Frequency jumper to 166mhz. Everything is now working as it should. Last edited by OCdragon; 10-16-05 at 03:53 AM. TechSpot Account Sign up for free, it takes 30 seconds.

The current core of the AthlonXP's is such that it dissipates a lot of heat. Also, you must connect the three prong fan plug to the three prong male cpu fan header on the motherboard.

You should, however, be able to use a 1.4GHz Thunderbird which is still pretty fast (about equivalent to a 1.8GHz P4).If you get a 1.2GHz or higher Athlon CPU, be sure Reply With Quote 10-16-05,11:39 AM #16 c627627 View Profile View Forum Posts c(π*199780) Senior Member Join Date Feb 2002 Location Kansas ...which he doesn't even need to do becasue he
