    Module 0 DDR-SDRAM PC2700 - 512 MBytes
    Module 1 DDR-SDRAM PC2700 - 512 MBytes

    Voltage 1.744

    Obviously my Core speed is way low however when I increase it i.e. 11 *166
    or 11*200 the system will reboot automatically (CPU Temp is generally <35
    in the interim before loading Windows XP.

    Will flashing the BIOS help with this?
    Should I reinstall Windows XP when I change the core setting?
    Any other suggestions?

    Usually best to cross-post to a limited number of groups than post the same
