    Does anyone know how to make this setup as stable as possible.

    I get intermittent lock ups - no pattern to this, purely random.

    I swapped from a Tbird 900, which was 100%

    Sometimes random lock up may due to poor power supply unit. Check the
    voltage to see if they are stable or borrow a good one from your friend to
    test it.

    Have fun.

    Lower the FSB back down to 100MHz.

    Try another mouse. The wires in the mouse cable becomes intermittent at the
    point where it
    enters the mouse body and can drive you crazy. I have experienced this three
    times now.
    I know this sounds silly, but give it a try. You might be able to bring on
    the trouble by
    giving the cable a wiggle at the mouse body entry point.

    Try changing your bios settings in the DRAM DELAY to NONE, thats how I got
    my KT7A 1.0 working stable at 133fsb with 1400+ xp with 3 memory sticks

    Hey what do you know - I have changed that setting in the BIOS and its been
    stable for 3 hours now.

    I also found that playing divx movies usually beat the PC into a reset after
    about 3 minutes or less. I have now played a full movie.

    How did you come across this solution, trial and error ????

    Thanks very much for the assistance.

  9. Hi Larissa!
    It´s only the FSB. I tried several BIOS-setings and memorysticks.
    With one or two i can rise the FSB up2 132MHz.
    My old T-Bird 950 (100MHz typ) runs w/o problems @ 133MHz FSB.
