  1. Ok, my system specs are below. And I read through several articles here on OC'ing my Barton 2500. I can't find the multipier setting in cmos, howerver I raised the fsb to 190 and now I am showing a 3200+ running at 2180, thus my multiplier must be 11X. Also the vcore is set at 16.2 and I was unable to find that setting either (total newby) The question I have is with my pc 270 ddr ram auto upping from 166 mhz to 178 mhz due to my fsb settings, could this cause me problems? It is Centon memory, and I don't have the funds to buy better ATM due to having to fix my kids comp. Also, I am running Sandra 2003 burn in wizard, is 3dmark a better check on my system than Sandra? Thanks /edit/ Have run the burn in wizard through 14 times now, solid! my max temps are 43C for cpu and 40.1 C for mobo, is this mobo temp high?/edit/
  2. The 256 Ram is pc100 SDRAM, not DDR, (it was scavanged out of my father in law's old comp) The wind 98 I had laying around, but I'll probably get an XP disk and just upgrade the thing. But not until I have the money. That is what pisses me of so much, I built this comp essentially for free from cannibalised systems. Thanks for the help guys, Ive tried everything posted here, but no dice. Ill let my son go in halves on win xp.
  3. I think I have an old boot disk from an emachine I'm off to bed, I'll check here and try what I can tomorrow. Thanks
  4. Hello all, After I built my computer I scavanged some parts from 3 comps and built my kids a computer. Stats are: AMD 1 Ghz proc Kilobyte MOBO 256 SDRAM Gforce 2 400 MMX card 6.2 Gig hard drive 30X cdrom ethernet pci card Win 98 SE with all updates loaded 350 watt PSU The mobo, cpu and tower with PSU are from my old comp, the rest is from my father in law's old comp. I installed everything and set it up, the pci card runs off a 100' cat6 cable to my router. The computer worked great for a few weeks. The problem is now the computer wont load windows all the way, it will only load in safe mode and wont access the internet, I have checked everything I could think of, tried only botting with bare essentials, it just gives me error messages and then will boot into safe mode. I don't have the money to buy anything ATM and do not have the windows disc (my son knocked it off and stepped on it ) Does anyone have any ideas? I messed with it for 2 hours this morning and it is getting frustrating.
  5. Absolutely stick with it. The most worthwhile things in life are the hardest, you will thank yourself later in life for the extra effort you put in today.
