Upgraded PC but its Freezing??????Any Ideas??
Posted on 2002-03-14
I have just upgraded my CPU in my mobo but after a few minutes the PC freezes.
The CPU is a 1.2ghz Duron. The mobo is a PC chips M810LR. Running Win98,geforce2 mx 400
In the manual it says it will only take a Duron cpu upto 850mhz.
When the Pc boots the BIOS says AMD unknown Athlon 1.20
If I go in to the BIOS to change the settings in the
CPU PnP Setup -
CPU type Duron
CPU Speed a= with a hyfon above the a????????
CPU Core Voltage 1.744 MHZ
CPU Ratio a= with a hyfon above the a again,??????
CPU Frequency 100 or 133 MHZ
DRAM Frequency 100 or 133 MHZ
I am quite sure it has something to do with the BIOS not recognizing the CPU,but i am not sure.
If so could anyone suggest a good site for the upgrade,
and are there many problems with upgrading the bios,I've built a number of systems but I have never flashed a BIOS
What does the a= mean???
Any help please........
