Hi there,... I think I've been very very silly......
First my specs:
Athlon xp 3000+
2 x 256Mb DDR SDRAM
MSI 6712 KT4AV Series Mobo
64 Mb Nvidia 4200 Ti with 8x Graphics card
DVD +/- Burner
Running Windows XP Pro with SP1
I have recently put this computer together but as a bit of a newcomer I was worried when
I saw that the processor speed was listed as 2500+ upon boot up.
The CPU FSB clock was set to 166MHz and when I increased it to 200MHz the system still registered as 2500+ and crashed pretty soon after boot up so I changed back down to 166MHz. After that I changed the CPU ratio from auto to x12.5/13 after seeing something on a website. This seemed to bring the CPU to 2800+ at boot up. Rashly, before even going into windows I went and put the clock speed to 200MHz and reset it thinking this may take it up to 3000+. Since then my computer won't even boot up and I'm worried I've done something very stupid and costly!
Can ANYONE help???? PLEASE?!?! :-(
