I have asus a7v333 mobo, xp 2100 cpu. pc2100 512 ram

i have fsb at 100 (1300 option) , because at 133 ( 17300 option ) my monitor turns off, computer doesnt do anything. but at 100 it works fine.. but then itr only runs at 1.3ghz and i bought a 1.73ghz cpu btw the third option is manual, but I dont want to mess with that yet, i just have 1300, 1733, and 2133 option, but 1733 crashes, im sure 2133 wwould crash too, only 1300 option works....


at 1.3ghz i get around 46-50 c idle.. so heat aint problem i donthink, i imagine if i got 1.73 running it would bae around 55 c idle or so..

so what do i do?

Make sure you set your FSB to 133MHz both in BIOS and via jumper on your motherboard(refer to your manual for details).
Also, make sure your memory is set to 133MHz - additionally, you might want to relax memory timings a bit, especially if you have generic(non brand-name) memory.

alright, well I couldn't find anything about 133 fsb. I have jumper free mode, because I don't understand how to set cpu speed with using jumper mode and then messing with all the jumpers to get the cpu speed correct. So I'll stick with jumper free mode, and use bios to edit.

What I did was, turned off power, unplug power cord, took out battery, touched the cmos with screw driver, both pins, put battery in, turned on computer. It said that I upgraded my cpu or installed new one, or something like that, and it also said it was running in safe mode, 1300 mhz. So it then gave me a list to select a cpu speed, I selected 1733, since thats what i got, xp 2100.

It then did the same old. I restarted, the monitor turned off, computer ran, nothingness.

I still dont get why it has 1733, then another option 2133. 2133 is like way more than 1733 mhz xp2100 default speed. so hmmm...out of ideas
