Why you can't upgraded
I upgraded my processor from amd xp 2000, to amd xp 2600. And when i checked my system properties it said i was clocked at 1.25 Ghs and the 2600 is a 2.13 Ghz processor.... Then i went into bios and changed my fsb from 100 Mhz to 280 Mhz, because amd 2600+ processor is 333Mhz fsb..(my bios only gave me the option of going to 280Mhz). I thought this might make my processor clock at a higher rate, but when i rebooted i got nothing. My cd-rom, fans, and cd-roms would turn on but my monitor wouldn't.. I mean no beeps, no message screens, nothing....
So my question is how do i fix this , What did i do wrong, And how do i get back into bios?!
Is there a way of reseting bios on the mother board.
And if this helps my ram is 384 MB of 2100 ddr Memory(266Mhz Clock speed). But i dont know how that would prevent me from booting up.
Also my mother board supports up to 3200+ amd processor.
This question was answered on November 12, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.DDR Ram is double data rate.
266 MHz rating needs a clock speed of 133.
Highly unlikely to run with 280 (=560 DDR)...
