AMD 3000 won't boot correctly on a M863G Mobo
Posted on 2005-04-20
I bought a Mobo with an AMD 3000 CPU. When first tried it it worked fine. The next day, when I was starting to install windows it wouldn't boot. Tried memory and cables, and yhe only way I got it to boot was clearing the cmos. The problem is that now it is showing as a 900 MHz CPU (instead of the 2200). In the bios tried changing the cpu speed to 166 (only available is 100/133/166) but it won't boot that way.
One thing strange: when it first booted correctly it showed as a Semprom CPU, as it should. After clearing cmos it says it is a Athlon MP.
