A7M266 and Athlon XP (Palomino)

Discussion in 'Asus' started by Leander Seige, Dec 25, 2004.

  1. Hello,

    I have an A7M266 with a Thunderbird 800MHz
    running fine since years.

    Now I wanted to upgrade with an Athlon XP
    1700+ (1466MHz) ARKGA (Palomino). Unfortunately
    it doesnt work. Fans start to spin but nothing
    else happens (no beeps, blank screen). The
    Board runs in Jumperfree-Mode, Voltage Jumpers
    set to default, FSB switched to 133MHz.
    I tried the latest stable (1007) as well as the
    latest beta (1008) BIOS but still no luck :(
    With the TB800 everything is still fine.
    Anyone a hint what to try before I consider
    the cpu broken?

    Thanks & greetings,
