I buy all my parts at www.newegg.com

Possibly the best place to go for PC stuff.

I start at GVSU in August.

I've got a question. I am pretty good with computers, but my computer is stumping me. I have an ECS K7S5A mb, Athlon XP 2100, ATI 9000, 512mb Atlas PC2100 DDR CAS 2 ram, Win 2000 Pro. For the life of me I can't get my computer to run at the 1.74 ghz it is supposed to. I have tried a few different versions of bios drivers, changing bios settings, and when I set the FSB to 133 mhz, it wont startup. One time of ten, it will make it somewhere in windows startup before it freezes, but usually it will hang before then. I will usually have to clear CMOS to get it to start after that. It will run as a 1500+ at 1.33 ghz with the FSB set at 100 and memory at 133 mhz.

Anyone got any ideas of what to do?

I see your memory is running at CAS2. Try CAS2.5 or maybe even 3. When it is at 2, and not designed for it, everything will become unstable. My memory is at CAS2, but it is designed for it.

Its a dual memory board. I've tried PC133 Cas 2, PC2100 Cas 3, 2.5, and 2.
