Question about ASUS VIA 694XDP Dual Processor Chipset CUV4X-D Motherboard
Greetings. I am having an itermittent issue during power-up, which is becoming more frequent. After the memory test of the POST, my motherboard stops after the following lines:
Award Plug And Play BIOS Extension V1.0A
Initialize Plug And Play Cards...
The system freezes here and requires a hard reboot. During the next POST, the CPU speeds listed have dropped from the original 866 Mhz to 433 Mhz. The system automatically initiates the Setup function, has the 866 Mhz listed as the CPU speed and indicates in the description section to the right that there was a discrepancy in the CPU speed during boot-up. I save the 866 Mhz CPU speed in the BIOS, reboot and the process starts all over again. I am thinking that one of the processors is sick, but I am not sure. I originally thought that it may be heat-related so I power the unit off and allowed it to cool for 24 hrs with no change in the status. I am currently running BIOS Rev 1016 on my motherboard. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
