I thought maybe it's because 15 is not a possible multiplier for the mobo, or the voltage is too high. In the BIOS the multiplier options only go up to 14 and the lowest availabe core voltage is 1.75V which is higher than what the CPU requires (1.45V). Could using a modded BIOS for the mobo fix things?
Thanks for your reply,
Actually the A7N8X will provide a multiplier of 15 if you have a CPU with a high default multiplier. I had an XP2400+ that ran fine at its default 15x133 in an A7N8X. And its lowest vCore is 1.575 which should be fine for a 1.45v XP mobile. I can't see how a modded BIOS will help either.
Hope you get it running! The Barton mobiles work fine in these boards and I can't see why a TBred version wouldn't work. Try running a bare minimal system with as little hooked up as necessary (ie: motherboard, CPU, RAM, PSU, video card, keyboard, etc.) Good luck...
