    I've just tried to use a AMD XP2100+ Palamino CPU to replace the XP1700
    that's in my Dragon Plus! system. The new CPU is known to be functional but
    when I swap the chips my system will not even run POST. I'm using the 2ba7
    bios which is set to auto-detect the CPU multiplier. Can anyone tell me if
    there is anything, other than swapping the CPU chips, that I should be doing
    when upgrading the CPU. I've searched the SOYO website as well as this
    newsgroup but have not been able to find anything relevant.

    Thanks in advance,
    Doug Turner

    P.S. Using 2x512 mg crucial DDR sticks in slots 1 & 3 with timing by SPD.
    I don't know if this makes any difference.

  2. AFAIR you have to clear the CMOS with 2ba7
    when changing the CPU.
    Be sure there is a working (rpm >1000) Systemfan
    connected at the board, or the Healthcheck stops
    Sys again.
    kind regards

    Thanks for the information. I cleared the CMOS when I flashed it but I
    didn't realize that I had to do so again when I changed the CPU. Your help
    is appreciated.
