Have AMD K6-2 450Mhz

Discussion in 'AMD Thunderbird' started by Paul Eastwood, Jul 7, 2003.

  1. Hi,
    I am new to this NG, I have prob with my processor(I think), if I enable CPU
    Internal cache in system bios I get a windows protection error. I've tried
    complete reinstall on clean HD.
    Windows works fine with the int cache disabled, albeit V slow.
    I used CPUINFO which reports no L2 cache even if I enable it in Bios and use
    CPINFO in DOS.
    Do you think my AMD is U/S?
    Thanks, Paul.
    PS My Motherboard is FIC VA503+

  3. Yah, it's probably your CPU... I had one go bad the same in my wife's
    computer and have had two friends with the same issue. After a year
    or so, some of the chip's cache seem to go. It wasn't all of them,
    but (apparently) fairly common.
