Failure to boot after several hours of operation

Assembled cpu (AMD athlon 6000 dual core) et al, powered system went with default settings. XP came on detected new mb and I proceeded to finalize settings and get the system up. System working but is slow powering off and booting up. Mouse working intermittenty on UBS connection, okay when I used standard mouse (PS2). After a few hours debugging my problems the system crashed and would not boot, error msg "check sum". After that not able to boot, no response at all. CPU failure??? I have sent the cpu back for exchange. Any one have this kind of trouble with this board?

    Replaced cpu (new), replaced power supply and still no boot. Now get one long beep and two short beeps nothing else. Removed all connectors (VGA etc), drives and memory still only beeps as above. MB is only item left.

Assuming you set the date and time, the error message checksum can refer to incorrect memory timings along with the front side bus speeds, so check the processor bus speed eg 533MHZ or whatever and check the memory speed as if they are different you wont get it to boot, you will need to reset the bios if you cannot get it to run at all.

Can MSI MS-6380E support radeon x1800?

1) Motherboard uses a Socket A processor socket. Also known as Socket 462.

When they switched from the Athlon single-core processors, to the Athlon 64-bit dual-core processors, they went to a completely different processor socket.


So using the MSI MS-6380E motherboard with a dual core AMD processor = NO.

I don't seem to find an AMD Athlon 64 X2 1.8GigaHertz processor, except for a mobile version. One used for a laptop in otherwords,

Uses a Socket S1 mobile processor socket,

Find the processor by it's AMD part number, and post the URL of the website in a Comment.

Show me the Processor, and then we can go on.

2600+ with ASUS MB A7V266-E/AA

Here is the CPU Support list from Asus Support, for the Asus A7V266-E,

Scroll down the list. 34th one down, that is listed.

1.Did you get the Athlon XP 2600+ that has a 266MegaHertz, (MHz), Front Side Bus? (FSB)
The AXDA2600DKV3C?

There is an Athlon XP 2600+ that has a 266MHz FSB, and one that has an FSB of 333MHz. <-This one Won't work.
Model number ->AXDA2600DKV3D will Not work.
Both are Thoroughbred A/B Core models.

The AXDA2600DKV3C has a 12.5x multiplier.
Your 1900+ has a 12x multiplier. (AXDA1900DUT3C) They both have an FSB of 133MHz. (Shown as 266MHz because AMD processors are 'Double-Pumped')

A.The AXDC2600DKV3C will not work. It has a 16x multiplier. (Thorton Core)
B.The AXDC2600DKV3D will not work. It has a 333MHz FSB. (Thorton Core)
C.The AXDA2600DKV4C will not work. It has a 15x mulitplier. (Barton Core)
D.The AXDA2600DKV4D will not work. It has a 333MHz FSB. (Barton Core)
E.The AXDA2600DKV4E will not work. It has a 400MHz FSB. (Barton Core)

2.Are the jumper blocks -> CPU RATIO, and SYSCLK, still set in the Jumper Free Mode?

By the factory default settings these jumper blocks, (DIP switches), should already be set to Jumper Free Mode.
The white DIP switches should be in the OFF position. (The white switches will be DOWN, towards the numbers on the jumper block CPU RATIO. They will be UP, away from the numbers, on the jumper block SYSCLK))

The CPU RATIO jumper block is right above the processor. It is a blue rectangular block.
The SYSCLK jumper block is down the motherboard, right below the AGP graphics card expansion slot. (And above the first PCI expansion slot)

If those two jumper blocks are not set to Jumper Free Mode, set the DIP switches in the jumper blocks to this setting.

Now go into BIOS Setup. In the main menu use the Right Side Arrow key on your keyboard, and highlight Advanced.
If -> CPU Speed is set to Auto, you won't have access to set your CPU parameters. If it is set to Manual, you will see them. If it's set to Manual, write down the headings, (CPU:System Frequency Multiple, System/PCI Frequency (MHz), and so on) Write down the numbers to the right of these headings. If something goes wrong, you can go back into BIOS Setup, and change them back.

1.CPU:System Frequency Multiple should be
2.System/PCI Frequency (MHz) should be
3.System/DRAM Frequency Ratio should be
4.CPU Vcore should be (1.750)
5.CPU Level 1 cache, and Level 2 cache should be (Enabled)
6.CPU Level 2 cache ECC Check should be (Disabled)
7.BIOS Update should be (Enabled)
8.PS/2 Mouse Function Control (Auto)
9.USB Legacy Support (Auto)
10.OS/2 Onboard Memory >64M (Disabled)

Leave the rest alone.

The AXDA2600DKV3C uses 1.65 volts, has a 12.5 clock multiplier, and a 266MHz FSB. (You will see 133MHz, and set all your settings to 133MHz. AMD processors are 'Double-Pumped'. Intel processors are 'Quad-Pumped')

Brand new motherboard wont start up

try taking 1 stick of ram off the motherboard, and boot up with 1 stick in slot 1 or 2.
You should get some beeps, 1 is system Ok.
3 is usually RAM/Graphics problems.
Also try booting with the motherboard setup disk in the CD Drive, it may be looking for files to initialise the Board.
And the obvious, check that all cabling is correct from mainboard to front panel. Power on/off Reset et,c.
View the user manual to see if the board has any jumper/dip switch settings for different configurations.

Computer restarts randomly with blue screen. How can I fix it?

Find the root of the problem by analysing the previous BSOD crashes. Its probably a hardware related issus (graphics driver or USB).

You need to enable the Memory Dump feature. This can be analysed when the system restarts to find out the root cause.
