Question about AMD AXMJ2800FHQ4C - Athlon 2800+ XP-M 266MHz Processor

2 Answers

Athlon 2800+ XP-M runs at 606 MHz

I just bought a 2800+ mobile cpu. When inserted into system it will only run at 606MHz not the rated 2.13GHz. Motherboard is a Gigabyte 7VT600P-RZ(-C). will run anything faster than 1.4GHz, up to 400 FSB.Cannot find any way of increasing the multiplier. Ran Cpuz and it came back with: Core speed: 606MHz Multiplier: x6.0 FSB: 101.0MHz Bus Speed: 202.0MHz I tried the overclock program that came with my motherboard but it wouldn't let me change the multiplier settings. Do I need to reinstall windows? I assumed it would run default at 2.13GHz when inserted into motherboard, was I wrong in thinking this? Any help would be much appreciated as I don't want to go and spend more money on getting this thing working. Thanks. Mike.E

Missing motherboard interupt. CPU running 100%


Most likely you've got a virus or spyware hogging up CPU cycles. Get a good anti-virus/anti-spyware program like Norton/Symantec or Kaspersky and do a full system scan to eliminate viruses and spyware.

I have a Motherboard gigabyte GA-8PE800. when i


Hi,
The ATX 12v ( 4 pin Connector ) is For The CPU Power.
This could Indicate, either A Faulty CPU.
Or a fault To The Motherboards ( BGA ) or CPU Socket Holder.
Or alternatively, The Actual PSU Itself is Faulty.
You can obtain A CPU Socket Tester from e-bay. And A PSU Tester.

Hope This Helps Mike @ Compurepair.

Motherboard will not start


It seems like there could be a short in the system. Check to make sure that the board is tight in the case, and that no foreign objects are causing the motherboard to short. If there is no obvious problem and the motherboard is new, I would return it as a defect.

GA-7VRX Motherboard won't boot


Hi sebaswis, am I correct that this Gigabyte GA-7VRX is a replacement MB? (I read your other posted questions). http://www.fixya.com/support/t1399506-computer_boot_when_power You mentioned you put your old system back together & it worked fine. If mother board is shorted to the system case you will see the CPU fan spin for a second. Most motherboards use a green led which represents there is stand-by power running to the board.(This is normal). I am unsure why your led is orange. (Its not mentioned in your manual & manual does not show the led?s location). Was the other GA-7VRX MB led always orange or was it also green? Suggest you disassemble the heat-sink from the CPU. You mentioned you installed a new XP 2500+ CPU. If a pin on the CPU was bent during installation of CPU into the socket or if no thermal grease was applied or too little to the top of CPU, either would give you: CPU fan spins for a second & nothing else seems to run. Look over the link provided below. It is a guide to how to install a motherboard. (You may not need this but Its worth going over all the steps). http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/145 As far as the power supply. If the MB's are the same (GA-7VRX) & the old system ran with 220W, the newer one should also function. Clarify these questions for me sebaswis. Mike

GA-7N400-L


Bartie,

First we need to properly identify your processor. You can go to AMD's website and under their Support and downloads page download a utility that can properly Identify your CPU Through codes it can read off of your chip.

If it is an Athlon 2800 this tool will tell you so. (Then it is likely your BIOS on the Motherboard just isn't recogniing it properly)

If it is an Athlon 2600 (Which I think is the more likely one) You may have purchased your Athlon from a less than reputable dealer. Who either remarked the chip themself or purchased it from a remarker at a discounted rate.

OK so now your wondering what is "Remarking" . This is when a chip dealer aquires a large amount of lower end chips then modify it by jumping some leads on the chip making it run beyond its intended rate (A process called OVERCLOCKING) and then prints a higher end processors stamp on it allowing them to sell it at a higher cost.

I hope this helps you
Dave

ADA3700AEP5AP 3700 Clawhammer wont boot


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.

System will not boot


The CPU failure was possibly due to a Power Spike, if that was the case then the Memory or Motherboard may also be damaged,  it may be best to test the CPUs and the memory on a known working system, to see what is working & what is not
