Dip switches are little switchs physically on the motherboard.

they replaced the jumpers which were found on older motherboards .

it needs to be adjusted depending on the cpu you are running .
and the front speed bus capabilites of you cpu and motherboard.
 newer motherboards allow alittle bit of tweaking the speeds and settings from the bios .try that is you are confident you know what you are doing

also referred to as multipliers. if none of the above means anything to you or is out of your understanding then you need to take your pc to a computer shop and have them adjust the settings on your dip switch .

somebody may hae configured it to run faster than is reccomended also known as over clocking ..

you may be risking your cpu and motherboard if you continue to use your comp .

Does asus p5gc-mmx/1333 support usb booting


Yes, enter the bios by pressing the del key on start up, you will need to have the usb device connected.
Enter the advanced settings tab and your usb device should be selectable as a boot device.
If the bios has no such option, find out what bios revision you are using (on the first blue screen after hitting the del key) and check the asus website for a bios revision that is newer.

2600+ with ASUS MB A7V266-E/AA


Here is the CPU Support list from Asus Support, for the Asus A7V266-E,
http://support.asus.com/cpusupport/cpusupport.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A7V266-E/AA&product=1&os=17

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
12.5X
2.System/PCI Frequency (MHz) should be
133/33
3.System/DRAM Frequency Ratio should be
(Auto)
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')

Get XP or Windows 7.
Vista is full of bug...
But if you want it...
The make sure you got "Boot from CD ROM" as first boot piority
To do this press "Del or F12" on boot up to get to BIOS and it is in boot sequence...
good luck.

A7V266E/AA MB CPU


The Ol' Asus A7V266-E?
1.The fastest Front Side Bus setting is 266MHz
2.Uses Socket 462 AMD processors
3.Uses Athlon, Athlon XP, and Duron AMD processors.

I would stick with an AMD Athlon XP. Fastest one? Hmmm, I believe that would be the AMD Athlon XP 2600+
The one that operates at 2133MHz with a FSB of 266MHz. Part number AXDA2600DKV3C
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_XP_microprocessors#Athlon_XP_.22Thoroughbred_A.2FB.22_.28Model_8.2C_130_nm.29



Here is the Motherboard Manual for your Asus A7V266-E, (It's a PDF file download. Let it download all the way before looking through it)
http://www.motherboards.org/files/manuals/1/a7v266e-100.pdf

If the above direct link does not work for you, then go here,
http://www.motherboards.org/mobot/manuals/ASUS/A7V266-E/ (Click on -> Download <- all the way to the right of -> File:a7v266e-100.pdfVersion:--Release Date:--)

Go to Page 19, Item 2. NO POWER connected to computer, make sure the SYSCLK (System Clock) DIP switches are set to 133MHz.
1, 2, 3, and 4 are set to the OFF position for 133MHz.
All you will see is the ON. The switches go to the opposite side as shown in Item 2.

I'm sure they are set there however, as your 1900+ you have in right now, uses a 266MHz FSB.
I should explain.
AMD processors are Double-Pumped. Therefore the 133MHz setting will become 266MHz for the processor. (Intel processors are Quad-Pumped.

They are both the same Core, (Thoroughbred A/B, Model 8, 130nm), so a BIOS update shouldn't be necessary.

The onboard battery that keeps the CMOS or BIOS settings is bad. It's a large flat battery that looks a lot like a watch battery just larger. Carefully remove it and get a replacement. Numbers for the replacement should be on top of the old battery.

Booting problem


If you have flashed your BIOS, you need to go into bios and select load optimised or default settings, reboot then go into bios and check the boot order of the HDD to ensure the HDD with the OS is the first boot drive

post back results and I will try to assist you more.
