    Becouse the mobo (i think) is setting deault for Duron up 700 and in
    board there is a Duron 1100
    So mobo has a exception: mb in safe mode and floppy goes in err. 40.
    I know there is a key command in the POST time to disable check Duron

    no idea what your talking bout.

    if your board is jumperless go into bios and change the cpu setting to
    what the cpu is rated for ie multiplier and fsb.

    that board should take a duron 1.4ghz np I am on a A7V which is a 100mhz
    fsb. your board should go up to duron 1.6-1.8ghz or athlon that does

    my bios has no problems with duron 1.3 and the board is good year if not
    two older than yours

    Are you saying that your current BIOS version is not compatible with
    the Duron 1100 CPU?
    If that's the case, you have no option but to replace the new
    processor with the old one, flash to the latest BIOS (1007, I think),
    and then switch to your Duron 1100.
    If I misunderstood the problem, disregard, but I hope you get this
    worked out because the A7M266 is sure a good motherboard.
