Have I been sold the wrong processor, “1800xp model 8 Thoroughbred” running on an “ECS K7S5A ver 3.1 bios date 08/09/2002 s.
Three times since acquiring about 2 weeks ago, on start-up computer has reverted to original set-up of 1150 MHz, even date and time has reverted to 08/09/2002, giving messages “CMOS SETTING WRONG” & “CMOS MEMORY SIZE WRONG” requiring me to press F1 and run set-up.
computer shop that sold these to me is sure that the K7S5a will run with the “1800xp model 8 Thoroughbred” CPU.
AMD states ECS K7S5a is a recommended motherboards for “1800xp model 6”, ECS K7S5a is not on recommended list for “1800xp model 8”
ECS site just states Athlonxp will run on ECS K7S5a
