I changed the dip switch settings on my shuttle hot 597 motherboard according to the silkscreened tables on the motherboard from a cpu speed of 83 to a 95 while leaving the 4.5 voltage unchanged. I presume I was increasing clock speed of the cpu from aprox 370 (83 X 4.5) to 415(95 X 4.5) megahertz. Part and parcel of this change were a change in AGP and PCI ratings from 55 and 27 to 63 and 31 respectively. Suffice it to say these alterations mean nothing to me other than numbers and parts.
A few years ago I upgraded the heatsink and fan to handle more heat and figured the above step up in speed would cause a negligible heat increase.
The silkscreened tables are dedicated to the dip switches, the first to 1- 3 and a jumper setting (JA26). Inasmuch as the change in these switches bore the same jumper setting, I left the jumper setting pin as it was. The second table concerns dip switches 4-6 and a jumper setting for DRAM Clock(JP9). No change was imagined necessary to either the dip switches here and I reasoned, correctly not, to the JP9 jumper pin.
The net result when the computer was turned back on was a blank screen.
Any guidiance or source dealing with this in laymen's language would be appreciated. In Quandry's grip,

Since you dont say which CPU you are working with, only what it WAS set at (the 4.5x83.3 = 375MHz), and that makes it very hard for anyone to guesstimate what it might be capable of.
There were 300MHz, 333MHz, 350MHz, and 380MHz versions. LMK which one you have, Okay?
I expect that you have a 300MHz version, which the previous owner of your confuser overclocked to 4.5x83.3 = 375 and you've simply tried to 'push' it farther than it's willing to go.
I have a K6-2 300 here that is quite happy at 4.5x83.3 = 376, and it will do 4.0x100 = 400 MHz, but it isn't 100% stable at 400.
It was good enough to hold still long enough for a 'pretty picture' though...

Here is my new PCChips M848A' "> v2.1, with a 1700+ @ 2411 MHz, and my trusty old PCChips M810L' "> v7.1A, with a Barton 2500+ @ over 3500+. Some of my fancy cars are on this pag
