New CPU

I just got a new cpu (socket 7 Intel 233 w/MMX) and I was wondering if I could figure out what the jumper settings are for it. I've set the voltage to 2.8 but I need to set the frequency ratio and the system clock jumper settings.  It's an old motherboard that I don't have the manual for and I went on the homepage for it and wasn't able to figure it out.  The motherboard is made by MTI and it is model M549.  The homepage is www.mtiusa.com

SET YOUR JUMPERS AS FOLLOWS:

JP10  JUMPER PINS 2&3
JP11  JUMPER PINS 1&2
JP12  JUMPER PINS 2&3


JP13     JP14     JP15 SHOULD ALL BE OPEN (NO JUMPERS)

THIS IS THE SETTING FOR YOUR MOTHERBOARD FOR AN
INTEL 233 MMX CPU.

iF YOU POST YOU E-MAIL ADDRESS I WILL E-MAIL YOU A COPY OF THE MANUAL.

satwa,  Thanks!  I don't know how you did it.  It is recognizing that it's 233 w/MMX but during the boot up when you get to the screen that shows the chip speed and memory and HD etc... it freezes.  Underneath the square that has all the HD specs and Floppy specs etc. it reads "L2 CACHE   TYPE    :" and then it's frozen.  Do you know what might be causing this?  I also noticed something weird about the screen that I'm not sure if it's normal or not, but under Base Memory and Extended Memory it reads "Cacorts(s) y  : 512K" I don't know if I've ever seen that before or I just don't remember seeing that before.  Also, if you could email me the manual for that MB that would be great.  My email is  homan7@yahoo.com

Thanks again!

What is happening, is that the motherboard is not reading your memory or cache correctly, I will check the specs and post more
here fior you plus I will e-amil the manual to you.

I have sent you all the printed info that I have on this board
by e-mail, I have also sent you a utility called:

KILLCMOS.ZIP, with all the instructions on how to use it to
clear your CMOS of false settings and restore it to the
factory settings.

In the meantime, you need to try some different memory
on your board.  USE 72 PIN EDO 60ns Memory or 72 PIN
FPM 60ns memory.  On this board you have to install
2 identical 72 PIN SIMM MODULES in 2 adjacent SIMM slots
for them to work.

You only have 1 DIMM slot, DO NOT put any meory in this
168 PIN DIMM slot as your board has an early VIA VXP
chipset called a SUPER-TX chipset(this is NOT an Intel TX
chipset by a VIA VXP that uses the name SUPER-TX). and these
early versions of this chipset did not support DIMM memory
very well.

Try all of this and repost your findings here.
