system locks up
Posted on 2003-12-06
I own a emachines etower 400I. celeon 400mhz. 128mb(kingston 66mhz), win98. I consistently get fatal exception errors, system reboots in safe mode.
the system has a 66mhz bus speed but can handle up to 100mhz memory. I have tried diffirent memory (128mb 100mhz sdram directly from emachines) but it won't even boot(fatal exception errors). I at least get the system to run after several restarts with the kingston.
Is it possible my motherboard is bad? Is their a way to find out? I'm going to rma the emachine memory(Infineon) and see if a replacement works.
Any troubleshooting ideas would be greatly appreciated!
