Motherboard Problem

Discussion in 'Chaintech' started by P122504@time.com, Mar 12, 2005.

    I purchased a Chaintech CT-7VJL5, KT-400 motherboard and got a $40.00
    rebate on the $49.00 price. It seems unusual for them to give this MB
    away unless there is some defect in the model.

    At the same time I purchased a Chaintech KT-600, VT8237 and have had
    no problems with it.

    I installed the KT-400, and after it runs for an hour or so, it locks
    up.

    Has anyone used this MB, and if so, have you had any problems with it?

    If it has a trouble history, I'll just replace it with something else,
    but if it works for others, I'll search for other problems with the
    installation.

    System Info:

    Win98SE
    256 KB Muskin P2700
    80GB Seagate HD
    ATI Radeon R7000 Video Card

    Thanks,

    BG

    Sorry, I forgot to include the CPU type. It's a Sempron 2500+.

    Thanks for the hint.

    I've never upgraded the Bios on a motherboard before, but I guess this
    would be a good time to try it.

    I have a couple of ECS K7VTA3, V. 6.0 that aren't working right with
    the Sempron, either. Maybe they need a Bios update, too.
