Sometimes its because we may lose track of the post, but most of the time we are pondering!

When you say "run my processor at 2.8 it wont boot up", do you mean running at 2.8GHz, or 2.8V, or something else?

It might be power if you mean 2.8V, but it could be heat if 2.8GHz. Those things can produce a lot of heat, and it might not be cooling down fast enough. This could trigger the motherboard to shutdown the computer for safety (as most new motherboards do) and this could be a reason.

It's an idea. Anyone else like to prove me wrong?

what speed are you running the fsb? also what ram are you using eg pc3200

sorry...
- i meant 2.8ghz but when i run it as a 1.1ghz it runs fine

-pc3200

-400fsb

hope this helps the pondering

I may be wrong but isnt the 2.8 a 333 fsb processor?

  dpm1981 13:47 27 Apr 04

to be honest its not my set up, i have just phoned the person whos it is and he informs me that its a 3200xp + 400fsb

i think now that it is more than likely poer related cos i know that he only just had a big enough power supply that is recommended when i thought it was 2.8

still like to know ur thoughts on the matter though
