Question about MSI K7N2 (MS-6570) Motherboard
I tried to over clock the board with really knowing what I was doing. I'm running xp pro with two EIDE harddrives 30 and 40 gig. has a old video card and a 350 watt power supply. I set the bus speed to 200 and the multiplier to 7 (I know I know)... Anyway as soon as I saved the BIOS info the computer just shut off.. Now when I turn It back on It runs (power supply, hard drives) for about 5 seconds then shuts off.
I tried resetting the bios but its the same thing. I doesnt even stay on long enough to boot from a floppy..........Did I burn something???? Memory maybe?
Doesnt sound good - When you said you reset the bios that meant you reset the CMOS jumper on the mainboard?
If that doesnt do it then i would try just one stick of ram at a time.
You may even have burned up the CPU trying to overclock it so far. If you could find another athlon xp then i would try that last.
If that isnt practical then it is likely the mainboard is shot.
It would probably be best at that point to use this as an excuse to upgrade to a newer platform - an athlon x2 5600 with mainboard and RAM is only about $200-$250 depending on the combo you get. Keep in mind most newer boards will use PCI Express instead of AGP video cards.
