Hi I'm new here and I apoligize if I should of posted this elsewhere. I been loyal to AMD a number of years now.
I have a hard time letting go older computers and building my 5th in the AM family now. I started with a simple intel 533MHz and then discovered AMD was much better. the current issue I'm in is perplexing me.
I'm using everything within reasonable grounds.
um I'll brake it down as simple as I can.
Motherboard is a M863G ver 1.5
Using a sempron 2200+ or a simple Athlon 900 MHz
depends on clock speeds
I actually got a full 2 gig of ram being read
DDR 400 MHz or 3200
one samsung 60 gig IDE and a maxtor IDE 120
psu is 475 watts, not sure about the rest but was enough to run my simple AM@ tower at the time. and a PCI e card
I was using a simple 128 ddr agp card
but can't seem to locate what the problem is
removing the maxtor drive does seem to be a big issue.
but is there even any point to persueing further?
I am 2 computers away from getting everyone outta a single core computer and on a dual
just fear these older ones are done for
but I still run a K7S5A
Most stable single core board I ever used with all the bells and whistles
anyways so anyone any ideas?
Um, you haven't mentioned what is actually wrong. If it can't run at full speed(i.e. it's 9x100 instead of 9x166) it's worth trying another power supply. Otherwise it could be a bad capacitor on the motherboard.
