MSI Fuzzy GME965. Anyone else had these issues and resolved them?
I purchased the above mentioned board from a user over at the fluxmedia forums. I also purchased a T8300 CPU to compliment it. I bought it primarily because it was S3 compliant and a decent deal.
I get the system up and running and I notice 2 things.
1) The system will not return from S3. I tried everything, driver updates, disabling/enabling everything in the bios, you name it.
2) Also the core speed of the cpu is only 1197MHz (6x multiplier).
I go to the MSI site, and see a bios update which includes support for the T8300. I update the bios and now the multipler is x12 (great!). I had to reinstall the OS after the update (they mentioned it would because of the northbridge id changing).
Now video drivers and one network port drivers will not work in XP. Regardless of version.
Vista install hangs after 'setup loading windows files'.
I have contacted MSI, but not holding my breath. Does anyone have an original backup/copy of the bios for this motherboard? I would prefer a semi function system vs. a complete none functioning.
