Question about Shuttle MK40VN Motherboard
I did go to Shuttle to look for a bios upgrade & Shuttle does not list any bios files. I found one bios file at Softpedia & downloaded it to see the date. The .rom file is dated 11/28/2003. I gather your 2003 is close.
The current bios does not allow you to clock the CPU to its correct frequency.
AMD XP 2400+ frequency
Bus speed (MHz) = 266
Clock multiplier = 15
You can try turning on the over clocking, see the manual page 57. These setting would be normal for the AMD XP 2400+ CPU.
I'm looking at the max frequency for the Shuttle is topped out at
198MHz. As far as the IDE hard drive I'd like you to download the manufactures bootable floppy software & check the drive with this floppy disk. (Works in a dos like mode). No windows involved. The Mfg's software will test & repair the drive if needed & will also set the drive up, set cluster size, choose NTFS FAT or any other FAT you wish for windows XP. It's better than windows format. You'll fine there are other options you can turn on & off if you wish. (If you run the Mfg's software, disconnect any other hard disk drive by removing the data cable).
On a personal note, I always use the Mfg's bootable software to set up any drive be it IDE or SATA I, SATA II.
Good luck cfuller77!
