ADA3700AEP5AP 3700 Clawhammer wont boot

ADA3700AEP5AP co stepping 3700 Clawhammer engineering sample...

Hi guys, bought this chip of ebay as working. Got told my PSU (400w) is under powered so got a new one thermaltake 750W 18a x4 rails its an old AMD socket 754. MoBo is a Ga-k8vt800 rev 1 with f13 bios (had f8 then updated to f13,latest). Gigabyte site says only the Newcastle chip is supported, i know ppl (online) who have the MoBo with the clawhammer in, and working.

The hhd and power lights flicker but wont boot.

Is it the co stepping not supported? who can update a bios to support it? And if its a test chip how did they run it originally?

System is; Ga-k8vt800 rev 1 with f13 bios
7600 gs 512mb video
40gb and 80gb hhd's
soundblaster generic
2 dvd burners
current cpu AMD 2800 works fine

I believe that it should work with that chip. If you have the manual for the MoBo try resetting the cmos on the board. That should put every thing back to its defaults. It is posable that it is trying to run it at the wrong voltage.

My pc dont show any thing axcept blank display with i tried to change graphics


Maybe one of your memory chips is bad.

If it seems to boot up all the way except the display is blank try the steps below:

Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor display the desktop then the original monitor is bad, but the video card inside the computer is ok. If the Borrowed monitor does not display then the video card inside the computer is bad.

If it does not seem to boot up all the way try the steps below.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.

Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

I have a PCchips M701 that wont boot after long time I dint use.


It's unlikely that the BIOS itself has been "erased".
The BIOS is "software", recorded on a small "Eraseable Programmable Read Only Memory" chip.
It takes a piece of hardware, an 'EPROM-writer' to update the contents of the chip. Or, the BIOS can be updated by a "BIOS-update" from the manufacturer of the motherboard.

The BIOS has "settings" -- the battery on the motherboard should supply a "trickle" current to the chip that holds those "settings" -- like an alternator provides a "trickle" charge to recharge your automobile's battery.

Try using the "BIOS reset" jumper on the motherboard, to reset those "settings" to their default value, and then try to boot the motherboard.

New ram won't work. Boot up beeping.


There are a few reasons why this might be happening. you have to make sure that you bought the right type of ram. there are a few different ones out there. did the chip fit right in or did you have to work on it for awhile? if it did fit right in then chances are you have the right type. there are different speeds as well. also some systems you have to install ram chips in pairs. 512 and 512 or 1gb and 1 GB. 2 different sizes wont usually work either

Hi guys my p.c wont boot! when I press the power on and press the front power button all the fans start running and the c/d rom starts trying to spin i.e the green light flashes 2 times every 5 sec's or...


Hi...

The problem that you have are same in common, if your cd room will not boot you need to first boot your cd room, you just go to the BIOS to first boot your cd room,, when you turn on the computer you need to press the delete key (or F2) after that, use the arrow key to select, chose the boot priorities, then you need to first boot your cd room, after the cd room first boot, press F10 to save, the ok

Good luck !!!

Hello,
Sometimes when this happens to me there are several things that I try. Remove the memory module and reseat it firmly and then try to boot again. Most of the time, this is the problem. If not, then try resetting the bios.

Thanks,
