Help: Biostar MB w/ Athlon XP 2500+ Mobile = crash
I purchased a Biostar M7NCG400 mb along with an Athlon XP Mobile 2500+ cpu and when it boots up into Windows XP, it will crash/freeze! I can't figure out why... all the bios settings are correct. I've swapped out 5-6 different pieces of RAM and even tried removing devices from the system.
I'm running an Opus 150w PS as well.... If I put another CPU in, ie: Athlon 1600+, it boots and works just fine with the same hardware and ram. If i put the new Athlon 2500+ mobile cpu into another PC, it works fine! So my conclusion is that it must be the Biostart MB causing the crash (freezing) with the 2500+ cpu.
I've tried upgrading the bios on the Biostar as well as underclocking the cpul, but no luck...
I see alot of people on MP3car using this combination... can anyone shed some light? Thanks!
