problem with Athlon and MSI
Hi I have an MSI board (K7T266 Pro2) and a new Athlon XP +1700 chip. A month ago my brother somehow "fried" the old +1600 cpu I had in the comp, so I ordered a new +1700 one. The board is supposed to accept up to a +1800 so no problem with the faster cpu.
Anyway the +1700 Athlon xp does not work in the comp. I dont understand it. The friend +1600 does boot up but crashes all the time.
Is there something im missing?
Im using PC2100 256 megs, a 40 gig HD, .. etc.
and the MSI board has a VIA chipset. The +1700 processor just does not seem to work, and Im certain I am installing it properly.
