I can't get a PCCHIPS M811LU motherboard to POST with Athlon XP2400+ Thoroughbred @ 266 FSB.
Posted on 2004-08-27
I have a test setup with the following:
PCCHips M811LU Mobo.
Award BIOS v6.00PG 811 Rel. 6/18/2003
AMD XP2400+ CPU (AXDA2400DKV3C)
1 - 256MB Crucial PC2100 DDR RAM
Voodoo3 2000 PCI Video card
PowerMax Plus 300W PS
(As I said, just a basic test setup)
When I set the FSB jumper to pins 1-2 (100MHZ, 200FSB) the setup POSTS as a AMD XP1800+,and I can access the BIOS. CPU/DDR speed is listed as 100/133. Just as it should with the jumper settings as mentioned.
When I clear the CMOS (following the recommeded procedure) and set the CPU Frequncy jumper (JP2) to pins 2-3 (133MHZ, 266FSB) the setup generates the single POST beep (expected) but fails to complete the POST and just sits there with the cpu fan spinning.
Unlike the M810 board the 811 is supposed to suport the Thoroughbred processor. As an aside, the processor, while it has the lable for a Thoroughbred core (see above) it looks more like theThorton mounting (three gold dots in place of a micro-chip).
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
