K7T266 Pro 2 - FSB Problem

Discussion in 'MSI' started by Jeremy Curran, Nov 15, 2003.

  1. Bizarre - my pc will boot if the fsb is set to 100 but wont boot if its set
    to 133 ? Everything seems fine until it starts to boot the OS - but at 133 I
    just get a blank screen and nothing. PC works fine if set to 100 though.
    What could be the problem, any ideas greatfully received. Using a XP1800+
    with 256 Mb PC2100 RAM.

    Have you set the bios back to defaults? If not, reset using the jumper
    and then load defaults in bios. That might tell you if you had
    something set wrong in the bios.

  3. Yes, I tried resetting the BIOS exactly for that reason but to no avail, I
    actually wonder whether it is a problem with the processor or the memory -
    memory more likely I think, I might try swapping another stick in there. The
    PC used to work fine at 133, and one day it just failed at the OS load.

  4. Changing the memory didn't solve the problem !!

    I had the same thing happen on a MSI K7T266 Pro2-A Ver 1.0 with a
    xp1600. When I set the FSB in bios to anything higher then 114 the pc
    would not reboot until I reset the bios. So after weeks of trying
    different things parts (power supply 450w, memory, video card, new
    heat sink @ fan) I even updated my bios but nothing worked. So last
    week I called MSI they told me that alot of these mb are having the
    same problem and to send it back 2 them and they would fix it.

    I have the version 2.0 and running a xp1800+ rock solid. I even oc to 1633
    with no problem.
